    Too much Dickell. I find a lot more enjoyable bottles for way less of the price too.

    I probably have the most recent one. Liquor store had it behind the counter with other allocated bottles, had to make a quick decision on if I wanted it or not. Figured $40 for allocated bourbon was worth a shot. Liquor store fucked up, it should have never been behind the counter. I knew it sounded familiar, was some discussion in here a while ago about how bad it is and I had just forgotten. Believe it was described as tasting like it was aged in a dog's asshole, it's terrible.

    The one pour I tried I remember getting a super strong earth taste, like there was actual dirt in my glass.

    It's solid but the regular price is $30ish I think. I bought mine at a rite aid for $29

    Technically, I should take you up on that. Mrs. Tamland has asked me to reduce the inventory to just what the cabinet can fit though, and I already have three 15yrs unopened so...

    The bourbon selection in my area of Florida (Palm Beach County) fucking sucks. You can find really basic stuff easily, but even then just regular Buffalo Trace or Eagle Rare are never on any shelves. If you ever want something from Heaven Hill, though, it seems like they have locked down every store in town.
