    I also passed on the Dickel 9 and everything else, including Willett FE 20, OFSB, SAOS, and regular Bookers. Just too much in the bunker at present.

    Did not see a single RHF, Blanton's or ETL.

    you didnt notice the price, did you? if under $50, ill try one of the new batches and maybe stockpile it too. at least with last year's batch, when Im in the mood for it, there is nothing better. It is a peculiar profile though, that Im only in the mood for from time to time, and lasts quite a while. I know Ive read a good deal of mixed reviews on here about it, which had made me wonder if the sales volume would discourage Diageo from making a 2014 batch available......guess not!


    I dont really care about the age statement, I just think the 103 proof is spot on. Dickel 12 is okay, but always felt a bit 'light'.

    Boatloads of overpriced Willetts and I never had to leave my desk to do it. Feels good!

    making people wait 2 years to get their selections and then significantly raising the prices is not a good business model, in my mind at least.

    Passed on Woodford for $29.99 today. Heck of a good price duly noted, but not my cup of tea.

    Conversed with willett via email today. LB selected those barrels in march 2013. We also selected ours about that time. We should expect ours in the next 90 days.

    Don't know pricing yet and I am not holding my breath.

    are you contractually obligated to buy them, even if they dump some insane price on you?
