I’ve bought a lot of bottles over the past few months and my favorites are OF 120 and EC C919
Thoughts on taste?
It takes like my grandma’s pie. FWIW I am originally from Alabama
Keef to be honest it s good it has some burn but I can’t tell you what “flavors” it has
Did you take this photo through a plastic bag?
was able to get one of the Sweetens Cove through Reserve Bar, total with shipping and fees was $250
My local store got a case in and still had some as of yesterday. $230 though. That’s an awful lot for Dickel if you don’t like that flavor profile.
its the novelty i guess
Got a larceny barrel proof finally and picked up a McKenna 10, because why not?
how much on the larceny?
That’s great. My guy keeps wanting to charge me $69 and that’s a no when the EC BP is $59.
Ya ecbp is $59 here at my main go to and has been forever. One store bumped it to $64 and the other $89. I don’t think anyone other than me buys it at my main store and most customers there probably look at larceny for $22 and say no thanks to barrel proof.
So 7 days into this experiment. They said 5 days was the max. Frankly, I think it has gotten better and better every day, and even after the 5 days. What was an overpowering ethanol nose is now much more complex and enjoyable. The flavors are also much better blended than they were previously where it was all corn all the time. Now you get oak, pepper, and a touch of vanilla balancing out the corn. It is definitely better and I am going to continue to double down and age it more.
I have never participated in the sample tasting but would love some of this
I honestly still don't like it very much. It's definitely better, but it had a long way to go. That is why i am doing this. Once this batch is done I will send out some samples.
Gotcha, sounded like it needed more time
Once you age it in the barrel you can’t reuse it again, correct?
It says I can. This is not actually a barrel. It is a container made out of charred white oak wood. It is pretty fancy looking and well made. That said, I would assume each thing you add to it is going to impact the flavor of the next.
Where did you get it?
Wow, I have not tried the Little Book #3 since i bought it. Holy shit this got so much better. I may even like it more than Book 2 and that is saying a lot.
LB3 is best LB. Fite me Detlef Schrempf
That’s awesome. I would be tempted to throw in OF 1910/20 or Clyde Mays Cask Strength to add in one of those flavor profiles
I bought it on Amazon, but I don't see it there now.
Here is the link to direct...
This is a pretty cool contest.
I hope whoever wins isn’t some ascot and glasses wearing douchebag
So I just pulled the archives out of the oak after 9 days. It is definitely a solid drink now compared to when it went in the bottle. I do like it much better. The couple of extra days has made a nice difference bringing out some fruit flavors. I was also surprised by how much darker it got as well as how much I sampled or how much evaporated. Thought I would have a lot more than that.
Today’s shopping pleasure
Nice. what did the OF11 set you back? That's an older bottle.
Two fiddy. He had retail at $399
MSRP = $109.99, alhtough this bottle is from like 2017 so it's not on shelves anymore
The concept of retail for allocated bottles is abstract at best.
there is always a MSRP. once the bottle has been sitting on a store shelf for years past when it was released, you know it's not being sold for MSRP.
Bottle says bottled spring 2018
gotcha thanks. I know the OF9 was fall 18, so thanks for that clarification.
it's a good one, enjoy it!
It’s been a while since Ive tasted anything new so I’m looking forward to them all minus the McK10 and EHT Rye
My shop has an OF15 “retail-ing” at $500.
Mine has OF9 for $299. hard fuckin pass.
He does as well. Hoping this comes in better than BCS15 that was recommended by someone in here for the same price tag
BCS15 2018 won whiskey of the year if you can believe it....
didn’t like it?
Dickel has someone on the payroll
That flinstone profile is too overpowering. I’d rather drink Dickel 9 year sour mash that has waaaay less of that taste and is a fraction of the cost.
I’ll revisit it again in a few months but I had a pour down to its shoulders and couldn’t get into it.
Anyone know anything about a 15 year old bourbon from Filibuster Distillery? It’s at a silent auction a local restaurant is doing to raise money for employees but I haven’t heard of it. Here’s the description:
“Filibuster was successful in sourcing one of the few barrels left from the Seagram Distillery in Indiana. This Single barrel straight Bourbon Whiskey comes in at 114 proof.”
There’s also a 3 pack from Law’s Whiskey House out of Colorado.
