    0D13A9F1-0629-4109-AF91-E2CFE0E0320A.jpeg Picked up a bottle of HH BIB and Birthday 2020. Guy I’ve purchased a few bottles over the years called me and held them for me out of the blue. Also got two bottles of Makers Mark wood finish series for me and tjsblue coming Friday.

    Anison your work is done.

    It’s very odd to me that a store would hold HH BiB and OFBB in the same regard.

    And I haven’t seen the new Makers Mark wood finishing series yet. When I do I’ll be doing my annual buy two: drink one save one.

    SMH. The OFBB was $160; Heaven Hill BiB was $70. Don’t be out here posting my shit - and with the wrong info.

    It sits down here for $45-50. I just didn’t think it competed with (name pretty much any other offering from the OP in that $30-50 range.)

    I agree I didn’t think it was great for that range

    They are mostly different juice/ voyage / taste. It’s a painful miss when it misses when you paid that...but I’ve had 3 good ones... that still aren’t worth the $70-100 but good.

    I like how different it is and it bites back. It’s my anti Blantons when I want some bite.

    That’s a standard. This is when I want a brand name to feel better about myself. Like drinking a Starbucks. Similar IMO to Eagle Rare. I think Buffalo Trace is as good... but sometimes I like to feel special.
    Bite..101/ HH BIB/ Stagg Jr ladder
    Taste... Buffalo trace/ eagle rare/ Blantons/ Michter’s 10
    Wheat SR/ OWA / more OWA
    ECBP for when it is time to make bad decisions.

    101 is my daily. It sometimes scares me how much I can consume tho compared to drinking the barrel proof stuff.

    Sorry got a bit sidetracked this week. I meant to go speak to the store about the barrel, but never got to it. Will do it in the next few days and see what we can do.

    Willett rye is really good. It's on the spicier end of the rye spectrum but that's my shit. Big fan.

    I seem to drink more rye than anything. Just happened to walk into one of my usual stores and saw it in the case. Guess it was the last one
