    Looking for opinions from those acquainted with Barrel Bourbon. My local just got a store pick in. 14 yrs and 108 proof. I understand these are single barrels so they’re all a bit different but do these justify the price? It’s $98.

    I enjoy these bottles. They are Dickel though, but not too fruity

    Had a Daviess County yesterday. Made by same people as rebel yell and old Ezra. Pretty good for a $36 price point.

    By the way, pperc is throwing his knowledge around in this thread too.

    But he seems much happier about it.

    I am a big fan of Barrell single barrels. My go to store pick is 14 years and 115 proof. Only reason I picked it up originally was to get a bottle of Blanton’s and have since gotten three more. Strong but very smooth.

    To pperc point though it may come down to availability since it is a couple of years old. Not terrible, and it is delicious. I think I paid $140.

    Saw it in a store for $145. Has anyone had it to believe it’s worth getting at the $20 markup?

    So I have been revisiting bottles I opened last year and just thought were meh at the time. I am also bottling up a bunch of samples right now, and taking some tastes of some bottles that I was not super impressed with at the time. I'm convinced time opened improves whiskey. In particular, the Birthday Bourbon 2019 is so much fucking better than when I opened it as is the Old Fitzgerald 11 year. I am actually pretty blown away by both right now. Also the Archives that I aged is so much better than the original. I am going to age the other bottle as well. It makes a huge difference.

    (I even really like the EH Taylor Single Barrel, which up until now I didn't get at all)

    If you wanna send a sample of the OFBB my way I’d love to try it. I can see if I have anything on my shelf you haven’t had and want a sample of.

    Thats about standard. Buy 3 and get a case discount. If you don't like it I'll take the other two off your hands

    Yes it’s fair. I think I paid $79 but it is a great bottle. I drank the Nobiliary again last night, and I think I prefer it to the 2007 but so different and both are great.
