Nice! I still think A120 is the best ECBP I've had, but B520 doesn't suck either. I picked up a B521 not too long ago, but I've heard not-so-stellar reviews on it (compared to other batches) so I'll probably just sit on it for a while and be glad I have it when they eventually ditch the 12 year statement. Too many other bottles that I'm excited about opening, and not enough drinking time in the day anyways

C919 is still my fave, Ben. From the ones I've had, B520 is up there. Maybe I'll revisit A120 this week.

Stephanie grabbed this owner's pick for me. The owner calls it "Wheat Slayer".

At the price point, it's definitely worth grabbing.

Yes. I have had several bottles of Old Tub. Solid pour and great for the price point. One chain here is now considering it as allocated.

Haven't bought the Old Tub yet, which is surprising because it's Beam and it's priced right. Maybe the scores of Booker's and Knob Creek keep me from getting too much more Beam.

Old Tub is all peanuts, moreso than other beam products in my opinion. I like it but don't drink it often, I made some cracker jack old fashioneds with it a while back and they were amazing (using a cocktail syrup) but definitely go into it expecting peanuts. Overall it's a great product, like Early Times it never hurts to have a cheap solid 100 proofer around

Cracked a new JD BP pick last night, another legit entry. Flavor and a lil slap in the face.
