    GD12 is a superb whiskey and kicks JD a**. You should really pick up a bottle and try it someday. Never had a barrel strength so I can't testify to that.

    However, it Looks like I get to try it today anyway, thanks Michael!

    The 9 year old Dickel Hand selected barrel is 103 proof and the 14 is 106. If you saw the 9 year old for $35 you should definitely go get it. Here is a reviewhttp://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...el-9-14-SBR-BS

    I aplogize to all, my memory and/or vision is apparently lacking. I went back to the store just now and yes, it was the 9 year 103 proof for $39, so not a barrel proof and not $35... ugh. I hate traveling for work, my brain gets all fuzzy like. That being said, I still bought one Now that puts me up to 7 bottles I have to bring back, good thing I get two free checked bags. Too bad I only brought 1 actual suitcase though...

    TSA rules say that you are allowed to take five liters per traveler. Most airlines have the same rule but some are more restrictive. MtnDew is presumably 250ml over the limit.

    I've flown with 7 bottles before and had no problem.
