    That’s special. Where’d you find that? How much did you pay? I have one but it’s already getting down. Any chance you can grab me one?

    My local store hooks me up because I always save them a 2oz sample from my good bottles. Yesterday he told me he had 12 and asked how many I wanted. I said... "Can I open one and try it in the store??" So we went to the back and opened one and poured it and I was like Damn! I'll take 4.

    I can def go get more or just send you one of mine from here its just shipping seems like a pain in the dick. If anyone has a good howto with typical pricing to expect I'd be down. I feel like S&H adds like 30$ to the price

    If it’s signed, I’d definitely like one. They are normally $79.99. I would email you a FedEx label so you just need to pack it up carefully in a box, tape the label to the box, and drop it off at FedEx.

    Dovetail might be my bottle of the year. Really dig it.

    Really debated buying more than one. I'm sure once word starts getting out, secondary is going to skyrocket and I'll be left kicking myself that I didn't grab a few extra to stock up.

    Had this at a restaurant last summer and loved it, finally got around to picking up a bottle. This stuff is really good, reminds me a lot of OKI.

    Usually like to drink on the rocks but I’ve been making manhattans recently and they’re pretty pretty good. Just lovely for lower tier bourbon.

    Saw it going for a pretty decent markup on the secondary market and that was the last bottle they had so I figured I would give it a shot.

    Went to a whisky tasting last night at Park Street Cantina in Columbus OH. It was mostly bourbon but everything was represented. They had an ok selection. They had VIP high end tickets (2) and was really disappointed in the selection. Two sherry cast finished. One Masters Keep and a local guy. They had the single barrel jack and was impressed with that. Anyway, disappointed in the selection.
    I got bored with the quickness and started poking around the rest of the place. Saw a birthday in the back corner then looked up and saw a 23 year EC. Grab my buddy and we weren’t sure if we were supposed to buy anything from the back. Went to the front and they had 2017 and 2018 birthday at the bar. Asked how much...$10. Had 4 between the 3 of us in 15 minutes. Convinced the bartender to come to the back with the rest of high end stuff. They had 10,12,15 pappy. Way over priced for a pour and we’ve had the 15 before. The EC 23 was $60. Bought it. Not my style since I don’t like the really long aged but fun to find it and try it.
    Went back up and had a birthday each. Then someone gave us 6 more tickets. Went back to my buddies place and had a few more michters 10. I don’t remember much after the first drink there. Best bourbon night ever.

    TLDNR Had EC23 for $60 and OF Birthday for $10! both for the first time.

    I'm going to go by tomorrow and double check with who signed them bc pperc15 was curious, he's snagging one of my bottles. They should have some more but I'll let ya know. If you want it just do like he did and send me a moneys and a packing label but I'll let ya know.

    I'd snag it if I were you. That's what I paid at a state ABC store. Would easily be willing to pay that much again.

    Won this in a raffle, been trying to win one for a while after I noticed a bunch of the 14 year Heavenhill’s dump dates were my Dad’s birthday. So I was really excited to get this one and I’m looking forward to sharing it when my family gets together on his birthday.

    Same here. It’s a great bottle and that price is a steal for the quality.

    I bit the bullet and bought a Weller 12 off my local secondary group. Got a 1.75 for $190. I’ve been looking for W12 for over two years and never saw it on the shelf once. I went with the jumbo because the price was great (comparatively) and I understand Weller stopped making the handles this year.
