    Staring at a bottle of Old Grand-Dad BIB

    I sit and wonder sometimes. It's not a living, but it's fun.

    What I find myself wondering now and again when I look at a bottle of Old Grand-Dad BIB is, How much longer? Old Charter 12yo, how much longer?

    Weller 12 year old, too late, it's already started to happen. Eagle Rare 101, way too late it's already happened. Russell's Reserve 101, too late it's already happened.

    What I'm talking about (wondering about) is are these going to go away or in some cases be reinvented at a higher price with a new label?

    I'll miss my OGD BIB.

    I've never had OGD BIB, would you recommend it? Do you put it in the same league as the others you just mentioned? I'm not a big fan OGD 114.

    I put OGD BIB in my "it's a BIG bargain for the price catagory" plus it's widely available. However, if you don't like OGD 114, you're probably not going to like the BIB. For under $20, in my mind it's worth a try. I like the BIB a lot.

    OGD BIB is also a very good choice for cocktails. If someone were to ask for a recommendation for just one "reasonably priced" bourbon to keep in their bar, I'd say it or WT 101. Probably WT if they expect more neat drinkers, OGD if they expect more mixers.

    But then again, maybe you shouldn't listen to me; I'm a big fan of OGD 114.

    P.S. And I'd put it basically in the class of those listed, but wouldn't rank it on top. Not on bottom either.

    Haven't been able to find it for quite some years, the point may be moot.

    That would be a shock to me as well. I've seen OGD BIB in many burgs.

    I like OGD BIB a lot. I put it in the WT 101/Weller 12 category as a good bourbon selling at a surprisingly low price for the quality. Having said that, it's very rye heavy...if you're not into that, you might not think too highly of it.

    I love Rye heavy Bourbons, just not OGD 114. If I see it at a bar I'll give it a try. I don't need anymore 'cocktail' bourbons at home as I have a few already and rarely drink cocktails at home!

    The best bourbon on the market as far as I am concerned.
