that visits the south once in a blue moon and it is damn good stuff. How did ya like it?
It’s a good pour but it’s nowhere near my favorite if I’m being honest. I remember liking it a lot more when I had a bottle a few years back. Technically it’s not labeled as a single barrel anymore, but at the end of the day, it’s still from a single barrel. So maybe this one is just a dud. Very light in flavor and short finish.

First impressions - it’s good with hints of fresh berries. Definitely more fruit forward vs caramel chocolate etc. It’s almost delicate and light on the palate even though it’s 112 proof.

This was a store pick so not sure how it compares to their standard release but I would probably pass on it next time. While good it’s a $70 bottle but worth $30 in my opinion.

I submitted an application on the link above and choose "Consumer, I just want some barrels. **If you don't work for a retailer or distributor, you'll be matched with one by our program"

I suppose lets see where that goes.

Did you ever hear back on this? I think it was a Blanton's barrel :)

Not sure this is a good deal or not... just thought I would pass it along:

$30 for BT, $30 for ER, and. It sure the cost of larceny. BT and ER are harder to come by. That’s a good price IMO

Really not a bad price. Your looking about $75-$90 retail depending on where you are. For a little markup to have all 3. ER is really difficult to find here. I got lucky and picked up 2 bottles but they were asking $40 each.
