    Would I be able to tell the difference? Ann Arbor would be easier for me then Livonia.

    how old is the barrel?
    Bourbon only requires a glass.

    The store owner claims 8 yrs, but he hasn't received the certificate from the distillery. Therefore I make no claims to the accuracy until I see the proof.

    Only one way to truly know. Buy one from each store.

    Wine Palace on Middlebelt at I96 in Livonia also has a barrel of OWA. The owner told me t was 7 ears old. I had a store sample, took home a couple of bottles.

    Wine castle usually has several single barrels. I think right now they've got the OWA and a Buffalo trace. Last year they did a couple of EC12 single barrels which were both great and sold out very quickly.

    Their prices are often a bit above state minimum though which is a drag.

    OWA has turned into my favorite everyday pour so it's great to see so many stores getting in their own barrels. I know GS Market in Royal Oak is supposed to be getting in their own barrel as well.

    I enjoy OWA and EC12 about the same even though they are very different. I can't stand the regular BT.

    Touche...the problem with Livonia though is there is no easy way for me to get there. I have to go south and the either east or west a ways, depending on which freeway I take and then back. Its just a pain and a lot of miles and I'm just never in the area. However for some good bourbon I can make a special trip thats for sure.

    Isn't it interesting how some places claim state minimum and they you go somewhere else and its cheaper. No saying they do that, but Im sure you've seen what Im talking about.

    Nice, I just found this place and they had some good stuff. I got a bottle of single barrel EW, tasty. According to the label its a shade under 10 years.

    I went out and picked up 2 bottles today and must say, u guys did a great job picking. I'm not much for tasting notes but I get a lot of red berries (which is my fav). Thanks for the heads up Tony, and thanks for the pick those who partisipated (Tony, Tony, Josh, Amie, ???) wish I could have helped!
