I located some Eagle Rare, which had been hard to come by recently in my area.  It was $25, so I grabbed two bottles.

I can’t tell from the lighting, but is that the older version of the Longmorn 16? That’s an I nteresting Barrell Whiskey you found there too.

Out shopping Christmas Eve I saw that Parker’s Heritage in 2 stores. That’s the 1st and 2nd time I’ve seen a Parker’s in my area. I was afraid of the orangieness (?) and passed. Your palate is much more diverse than mine though. Tell me about that Barrell bottle. I haven’t seen that one.

I'm pretty interested in trying this years Parker's, I'm hoping I dig it. The Barrell is a blend of 11 year TN bourbon finished in Rum and Port and a 10 year old IN Whiskey finished in Cabernet barrels, it sounds like a weird combination to me really but I have consistently enjoyed all of the Barrell stuff I've had and like this year's Parker's curiosity won out over my bank account.

I just hit the jackpot. You can imagine my excitement when I saw this sitting on the shelf!  And less than MSRP ($199.99) to boot!  Woo hoo. I never find unicorns

I've really liked the Barrell Whiskey batches (and the bourbon ones too). Is this Dovetail release a one-off, or have they gone from numbered batches to named batches? Basically I am wondering if Dovetail is Barrell Whiskey batch 006 or something different? How much was it?

Good for you!  Great find.  But, in today's world, there was just that chance you got that for about $19,800 less than what they were asking!!  :D

lol so true. I was relieved when I checked out and he said, “Two hundred and seventeen dollars and fourty six cents” instead of “twenty one thousand, three hundred and seventy two dollars and sixteen cents”

According to the presser in Whiskey Advocate retail is $90 though I paid $65 so YMMV.  It seems this is a line extension more than a replacement.

Once again my cousin delivers on his monthly mule trip up from the Motherland... He bought out two stores in OH that have become regular stops on the way.

 

Price has gone up though... Used to be $22/1.75  Now it's $27 and $16 for the 1L

Not sure... I didn't look. Doesn't much matter as I drink it with Sprite but it's good enough to mix at like 50/50. It replaced MM as my mixer back when it was $22 / 1.75 which ironically was probably the 6 yo stuff...

The wife and I  welcomed William to the family today. LE season was better than imaginable this year but my wallet sure hopes it's over.
