ER10's age statement is already on the back label. What is the saying...The writing is on the wall?

Why is Weller 12 italicized?  Because it's not "readily available"? It is still being produced.

Hasn't their age statement always been on the back?

How about Old Ezra 7yr, replacing Old Ezra 101 7yr.  Also ECBP (12yr).  To branch out from bourbon slightly, Bernheim Wheat is now 7yr, and Pikesville Rye is 6yr.

I think the ezra and ecbp arent considered readily available. Although the ECBP is becoming more available. Try to track down the Ezra BP... its nearly impossible. 

I agree the ryes should be on the list and would add RR 6y/o Rye

Duh...You are correct. I totally spazzed on that one. They removed single barrel and the neck band at the same time, I think.

Pikeville and IW Harper?  Both of my bottles have age statements but I can't remember how old they are.

Can stumble on both pretty routinely here (AR) at MSRP,  been looking at OE7yr on the shelf since it came out at one LS I frequent, and while ECBP is seasonal/quarterly? it hangs around too.  I just wish W12 would take up residence like that.

Yeah, my understanding is that the change had to do with the new automated bottling line and somehow the neck band was not able to be applied.  Believe BT has said there are no plans to remove the age statement and I believe it has been a few years already.  While on the topic the bottles no longer say "single barrel" right?  Think this was because the new system could have a bottle that finishes one barrel and starts another and thus they cannot call it  a single barrel anymore.  

 

Ezra Brooks 7 year BP is readily available IMO.

That is correct. They say that it is still a single barrel product, but they chose to remove it because the new bottling line may cause bourbon from other barrels to enter the bottle. That was 4-5 years ago and the age statement has remained. I was going to say Ezra BP 7 Year, but after the initial release, NC has seen no more.

OP lists FRSB.  I didn't think it had an age statement on the label?  It was supposed to be around or close to ten years.

EWSB still has an age statement, but it keeps getting rolled back.

I assume he's speaking of the store picks. 

I think the stock SiB OBSV is between 7-8 years. The store pick 100 proof that I've had were in the window.

True...I was thinking of the 10 on the neck label. Not a single barrel anymore either though.

Jeffer's Creek 6 year is still very much available here as a house brand at a local chain FWIW. A few I can think of at the moment not on the list Boone County 10 & 12 year, Hickory Hill 12 year and Widow Jane 7 & 10 year

I was under the impression that the LS&B were one-off releases and not standard products.
