    Bottle in Bond means it has been aged 10 years, bottled 100 proof.

    BIB just has to age a minimum of 4 years, you can bottle it (at 100 proof) at any time after that.

    This was Barreled 11/23/11 so about 7.5 years old.

    That box should be the thread hot potato.

    Next time you find a good bottle, grab two and send one along to someone ITT.

    If you want to throw an anal ring toss into the box, who am I to judge?

    Opened my bottle of Dovetail tonight to sip on during the baseball game and :ohholkyfuck: . Going to be hard choosing to go with my other bourbons now that that bottle has been opened.

    Had the Hibiki last night and it was fantastic. The Chita I brought back was also had and also solid. Turns out Japanese whiskey lives up to the hype.

    Does anyone know if Dovetail is a yearly release, or was this a one time thing from Barrel Bourbon?

    Dovetail is sitting on shelves in Atlanta for $80. How many do I pick up (if any)?

    That is retail for those bottles. I’m sure if you bought them out you could resale to the rest of this thread. It’s a great bourbon to have1-2 bottles in your cabinet.

    I’m interested in drinking it, just wasn’t sure of price/availability. And I’m too lazy to search the thread.

    A store near the Braves stadium has it in stock for $80. They always seem to have a decent supply.

    I have seen 3 separate bottles with 3 different proofs, so wasn't sure if they were all from different years.

    Looks like they have two of the three proofs listed, one was released in November of 2018 and the other in February of this year. Not sure about the third proof I've seen (124.34).

    Interesting. Have you had a chance to try the second batch? If so, just as good as the first?

    Haven’t yet, only time I’ve seen it was at a total wine in phx and it was retailing at $110 there so I figured I’d wait til I was somewhere with a lower msrp. I believe WillieHuff has and said it was even better.

    Would love to hear some thoughts. I know you said this was their second release, but according to that article I posted above, there were already two other batches released (Nov '18 and Feb '19)

    So the two you are referring to are the ones that came out in Nov '18 and Feb '19 (122.9 and123.8 proof), correct? There was a third proof my buddy sent me a picture of that was 124.34 proof, which I found odd and couldn't find anything online about.

    No dice on the Dovetail. That was wiped out along with the Nikka grain I was trying to pick up for my FIL.

    Speaking of my FIL, he just sent me this...
