    Re: OWA Private or Single Barrel

    Oh, it's cheap alright. Just wanted to see if there were any unanimously good ones so I keep the number of open bottles I have to a minimum. It's somewhere close to 13 or so right now.

    Re: OWA Private or Single Barrel

    The only private barrel of OWA I've had is the current one at TPS and I like it better than the standard version.

    Edit: When I say better I really mean are they more flavorful or complex. For instance, Greg over at bourbondork describes some of his private barrel pics as caramel/butterscotch bombs with some wood. I would like to try something like that if possible.
    I think those are 1789b selections, I've tried a few of those and they are great. It really does all come down to barrel selection. Talk th the person who selects and they should be able to give you a good understanding of what you can expect.

    Gee, I don't even own 13 bottles. Even if I include the backup (singular).

    I've been pretty busy the last few months...you never know until you try it though.

    Oh, I think I've heard of that group around here a few times. Kind of like demonoid where you have to be invited to join?

    At any rate I'll probably wait to meet up with Wade when possible and go from there. Thanks for all of the suggestions guys.

    Re: OWA Private or Single Barrel

    Got me curious, so I googled and came across Josh's article. Yeah, I'd love access to private selections, but I have no interest in tobacco and BS - my loss, I guess.

    The ones Greg is descibing he had a hand in picking out.
    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.

    I realize that, but surely plebs can find honey barrels too.
