    Can you educate me (us) about this?

    Also found and purchased several bottles of EWSB 1994 at $24 each.

    Old Fitz BIB is a longtime favorite of mine. It was made at Stitzel-Weller (DSP 16) until that distillery closed in 1992. It has been made at Bernheim (DSP 1) ever since, first by what is now Diageo and by Heaven Hill since 1999.

    The old SW Fitz BIB was like liquid caramel corn. The DSP 1 effort has, I think, gotten progressively better. One difference is a slightly bitter back-of-the-throat burn that seems to characterize all DSP 1 spirits. It's not unpleasant. For many people, that's something they look for in bourbon, but it was absent from the DSP 16 product.

    The Old Fitzgerald brand began in the late 19th century. It was created by the Herbst Company of Milwaukee. Pappy Van Winkle bought it at the end of Prohibition and it became the leading brand for Stitzel-Weller and the prototypical wheated bourbon.

    I am in Oregon, heading home tomorrow afternoon, and grabbed 2 bottles of Buffalo Trace one for my buddy's ranch bar and one for my closet. If I have time tomorrow I am going to grab an Ezra B 12 year, it is another that is not available in SoCal so for it's low price I'd like to add it to my every day pours... The selection here in Oregon isn't as bad as I thought it was when I left a few years ago.

    I really like the Wathens SB. Hard to find here in VA. I've only found it in 1 ABC store.

    2 x Booker's. We really like everything about this whiskey.

    Others in our top 5 would include:
    Elmer T. Lee
    Knob Creek
    Bulleit
    ERSB 10 y/o

    If we could throw in Tennessee and Irish whisky we'd add George Dickel #12 and Powers Gold Label.

    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? Winter/Spring '07

    Here in South Jersey, it's not only a sunny day, it's also a dusty day! I just found a gold-viened bottle of Weller 107, with a faux tax stamp, distilled in Louisville. And four pint bottles (for six bucks each!) of Old Taylor BIB, with tax stamps. Of all the dusties I've ever run across, the OT BIB is my favorite. Huge, plummy flavor, just heaven in a bottle.

    Here's question for the archeologists out there. I had been reaching the bottom of my original dusty OT BIB. Distilled at DSP -19, bottled at DSP -14. No tax stamp or government warning, and with a UPC code on the label. These four pint bottles are clearly older, bearing tax stamps but no UPC code, and they bear the same distillery information - distilled at DSP -19, bottled at DSP - 14. But the newer bottle says Old Taylor Distillery, Frankfort, while the older bottles say Old Taylor Distiller, Frankfort and Louisville. Did Old Taylor at one point have a second distillery?
