Truth be told, I don't particularly like either. These two never agree with me. I'd rather get an OWA.

Have taken nearly a couple months off since Thanksgiving with only a couple pours around Christmas. Pure torture. Having my first  real drink in some time tonite. A new Eagle Rare store pick on a  very fresh palate. This tastes like liquid butterscotch.

Had a pour of 1792 FP. Full of delicious banana nut bread, clove and brown sugar.

Some ND OGD BIB while waiting for  that $5 pizza to come out of the oven...🙄.  Which would you pick? 3 DiGiornos, or the bourbon?*

Dinner and a few tastes (1 oz. pours) with my son last night.  Great bourbon selection and great prices on most items too.  My first taste of Weller Full Proof and, I have to say, it's delicious!  Sweet, fruity notes and great mouthfeel.  Like a baby WLW.  Also, I'd never tried WT Decades either and wow, what a deep and complex bourbon!  The GTS  (2018) was, of course, amazing...

$15? . . . For a pour of GTS? . . . Gotta Luv That!!!

This one is for you Gary and Joe. A Vosmonster type pour of a Weller Whore fabulous pour. Pretty sure this was bought in 2013. It is a butterscotch bomb for sure.

It was WT 101 for me today, for which I was perfectly happy.  That being said, I think I wouldn't mind drinking here.

Between rain, Holiday festivities, rain, and other stuff...rain, it seems like ages since I’ve had an evening out by the fire.  Taking advantage of a lack  of all of these impediments, to relax by one tonight.  Bouncing back and forth between pours of WT 101 and Buffalo Trace, before I figure out what I’ll change it up to.

Ha!  One of, if not my fave whiskey drinking glass.  I bought my second  gift pack of Copper Pot more for the glass, than for the bottle.  And, I like Writers Tears. Especially, the Red Head.

I am an OGD BIB whore.  I consume more OGD BIB than almost everything else combined (UNLESS I tell the truth that I consume more OGB BIB than ALL other bourbons and ryes combined).  I also have more OGD 114 bunkered than a sane human would have just in case somebody starts an other rumor that it will be discontinued.  Let me say this about your rumination - and keep in mind that this is an anecdotal observation.

 

When I dilute 114 to 100 proof of thereabouts, it does have a slightly different profile than the classic OGD BIB.  Maybe that's due to the water where I am (although the difference exists regardless of whether I use filtered, melted ice cube water, WashDC tap water (which is really good - a college classmate of mine was in charge of its purity, and I trust his skills - we went through Ranger School together) , or well water on vacation).  My guess is that the BIB may be around 6 YO while the 114 is slightly younger and is from  4+ YO barrels that skilled palates think will NOT get better with age.  But then, I just made all that up.

 

IOW, I think the price difference is due to "what the market will bear".  I do recall some years ago when 114, diluted to 100 proof, was cheaper per ounce than BIB per ounce. Some discussion on SB and on some other blogs noted this - "Why buy BIB when you can buy 114 and dilute it yourself and SAVE!!!! 4 cents per ounce!!!!!!"  Shorty thereafter,  the price inversion corrected itself.  I sure hope those Trolls are happy with their work.

I wondered if the 114 was younger! But I had some tonight, and it was great! "Far across the Chattahoochee to the Upatoi, stands out loyal Alma Mater , . ."

Just Standard BT. Didn’t feel like high proof and this is plenty to keep me interested with some pleasant side effects. Love it.

That’s very much what I get from that bottle, and I love it.  Moving up and down through the 1792 labels of SmB, BIB, Single Barrel, Full Proof, the profile shifts to more/less of each of your notes, and makes for some nice, while different, offerings.  IMO, Barton is killing it with their line extension of 1792.

Had some Stagg Jr. Batch 11. Only a small pour since its Mrs. Clueby's bottle.  Then moved on to a sbs of a couple 375s of BT store picks. They were VERY different. One was very un-BT like. Had a bit of nuttiness and a funkiness in the finish. The other was like an amped up BT with vanilla and that BT mineral-ness. I liked it quite a bit better. Mrs. Clueby agreed.

Had some BTPS in my flask Thursday while camping out at my county’s whiskey event. Bought at the event and cracked last night. Interesting nose with sour stewed fruits and oak. Very sweet, with more stewed fruits on the palate. Almost seemed like it could be port or sherry cask finished or something.
Not an everyday pour but I like it.

It was about 25 degrees and icy rain here last night so can't imagine camping out.  I camped out overnight one time in the 80s for concert tickets. I don't know if I"d camp out now even if I was guaranteed a bottle of PVW23 at retail.  Hope you got something more than an RC6.  They were stacked 10 deep on the shelf at TW in KY.
