As far as I know, Joe, I have never had any TN whiskey that old. Give us one of your famous short reviews on this.

What did you think of the white label? I like gold label better.

i hadnt had it in some time. i thought i remembered it as being pretty decent, with a good bite, and a bit more of the HH house taste than i liked....

tasting it now, i still find the HH house taste as i remembered, but find it to not have much bite (i appreciate a good bite more than anything), and be a bit too smooth for me. if you gave this bottle to me blindly, id swear it was no more than 90 proof. Comparing it to FC103......FC has a bit bolder taste and more bite to it.

now ill have to go out and get the gold BIB again. from what i remember, it was a lot like the white BIB but a bit more bite, probably because its younger.

the smell is great, like when you are walking into a HH rickhouse

got one of the golds yesterday.

VERY similar to the white label, but less smooth, and a bit "hotter". i attribute this purely to two years less age. Since i like "hot", i may lean a bit more to the gold one, but it also has a younger corny taste as well. tonight i may try mixing them. either way, theyre both a steal at $9-11. nothing special, but definately not bad either.
