My question is whether the 114 is older than either the BIB or 86 proof varieties. How old is this stuff?
My comment is that after reading the "Bourbon of the Month" threads repeatedly it appears that this bourbon received the most consistent praise by all posters (almost all bourbons had haters, but not this one). Would you say that this is really a very special bourbon that should be in folks' top 5 considering its value? Taken with water it seems to revert to the BIB variety w/ a bit more wood and perhaps, complexity. I think this is a pretty special pour.
