    So if you like “finished” bourbon at all, Barrell Dovetail might be the best I’ve ever had out of that category. It’s not cheap, but it’s one of the first bottles I’ve had in a long time that’s over $75 that I thought “yea that’s worth it”

    Yes, and yes. I don’t know if it’s worth the price, but it’s pretty good. The Single Barrel stuff at Full Proof is even better.

    Unfortunately, raffle prices are usually 10% or more higher than going secondary rate. I’ve tried to find those little loopholes and the opportunities are few and far between.

    Drinking Blanton’s tonight for the first time in a while and it’s a little disappointing. I’ve been drinker mostly Barrel Proof and finished bourbons lately so it’s probably not a fair comparison, but I’m not loving it

    The 2018 Little Book is good but not $100 good. Not sure if I reported back yet or not.

    It won't knock your socks off but for the price I'm a big fan. It's about 22.99 locally

    With 2018/2019 bourbon prices it’s a great value.

    Could prob ship some. Need to see if it’s stock next time I check. Been hit or miss the last few trips but I could have bought 4 bottles when I got this one.

    I’m pretty new with bourbon to be honest. Would have to think about it. I know beer. Bourbon is a different story.

    I don’t even consider it when I have 5 bottles of antique sitting there waiting to be drank or drunk or drunkus or drunki. Maybe I should slow down.

    goblue31602 told me about a place that would have them and I brought my wife and FIL. And he found me a few. And then I found one randomly. They must have released a shitload in Cinci all at once.

    Edit: did I mention they are 1.75L. :drunk:

    Cincy is getting some almost every week right now. This is the first year I can remember where it has been this way.

    Unfortunately it shows up and disappears quickly so you just have to catch a place as soon as they get a shipment

    No hunting in PA unfortunately, unless you count checking the website daily.

    Anyone ever hunt Boston? Will be there next week and not sure where to try.

    We have a few honey holes that get shipments every Thursday morning. tjsblue has inlaws that happen to live very close to one so I tipped him off.

    Most places have no problems telling you when they get their shipments, we're also on a few newsletters that announce when they'll release a rare one. All places are 1 bottle each.of the good stuff.

    I think one of the breaking bourbon guys named it one of his three favorites of the year, unfortunately I haven’t seen any in the wild.
