Default NB Bourbon Barrel Porter vs. AHB Whiskey Barrel

I've read a lot about the Bourbon Barrel Porter from NB but haven't heard much about AHB Whiskey Barrel Porter. I'm thinking about ordering one of the kits but i'm not sure which one to get. Any suggestions?

I think the AHB kit is fairly new so there are probably not going to be a lot of reviews on it yet. But the recipe's look fairly close to each other so I'm sure either one would be fine...err..GREAT!

Let me know how this turns out. I got a buddy who is currently fermenting the bourbon barrel porter I have high hopes for it.

I have brewed the NB one twice. Both are top notch vendors so you both should be great!

Midwest makes one also, I have it sitting in the secondary right now. Truthfully I don't think you will go wrong with either of them.

OMFG, popped a couple yesterday and a few more today and this is the best beer I have ever made even the wife agrees and she doesn't like beer. It is smooth with a slight hint of the Makers Mark that I added. This is a keeper, I'm thinking about brewing it's big brother: Austin Homebrew Supply

Highly recommended.

I've brewed the NB Bourbon Barrel twice as well. I use Makers Mark, and deviate a little by soaking the oak chips longer than specified. I give out bottle and growlers to friends and family fro Christmas as I'm not a whiskey/bourbon drinker. I've been told its excellent tho'
