They're going to make ET BiB at the Barton distillery and Barton makes pretty good stuff. Very Old Barton 100 is good for the price of you can find it. It's the one with the white stripe around the label. I hear some folks are starting to buy up the ET BiB when they can for the seam reasons you confess.So being new to bourbon, I don't really have any old expensive bottles like some of you guys, but I have been trying a few things lately to find a new daily sipper. I really like Eagle Rare, but it's too hard to find to drink it daily. I really like OF 1920 and 1910, but at $55 a bottle, you can't drink those daily either. I tried Wild Turkey 101, and while I do mostly like it, it takes a few sips to get past that turkey funk and most days I don't even want to go for it. I've tried Evan Williams Bib and I think it's just a little to thin on the mouth feel to really enjoy it neat. I've mostly been sipping on Buffalo Trace, but today I found something I like better, Early Times BiB. It's so pleasant and sugary sweet. I really enjoy it a lot. However, I've been doing some reading on it and found that Brown-Forman just sold it off to Sazerac. Now I'm worried it won't taste the same for long. I hope I don't have to go back to the tasting board.
I drove to Terrell, TX in search of a bottle of Wild Turkey Masters Keep Decades from 2018 for less than MSRP. I did procure a bottle, but then decided to poke around some of the liquor stores in the area to get a feel for what else might be there. Long story short, I found a few old bottles of bourbon. While I was unable to get some of the cooler bottles, I did make my way home with some bottles from the 80's and 90's.
All of them.What store did you go to? I live in Forney and Terrell is literally 10 minutes from me.
