    Where are you located and what's your budget? I don't mind keeping an eye out on secondary markets for you, but it's likely a raffle item if you are going to find one at retail.

    Also, just to confirm. Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year is what you're looking for?

    Yes sir! I’ve been hoping in the raffles and bidding in the secondary market. Thank you!

    Both of these are quite tasty and both of the bottles pictured have been consumed.. the Saffell is good whiskey no doubt and I bought a couple backup bottles. The Bond and Lillard is also quite nice. I’m not one to usually pick out flavors but the B&L has a lot of vanilla and a nice creamy smooth finish. Not sure why it didn’t get as good as reviews as the Saffell.. either way both are a little spendy but still good wild turkey products. I saw batch 2 B&L in the shelf as well. Wonder if it’s about the same as batch 1..

    I saw the WB Saffell at the Wild Turkey distillery when we were up there recently. It was around $50 for a 375ml and, with it being the first stop of our tours, I couldn't bring myself to purchase it. Didn't know a ton about it, but the WT employee brought me up to speed. I didn't think much about it beyond there. Recently, I've seen a LOT of people sharing posts of having a pour. Wondering what I might have missed out on!

    I acquired these today:

    Had the Balcones Hichiceros in Denmark recently - I brought a bottle to gift my uncle and cousin for letting us stay at their place. Man, it was delicious. The local gentleman gave a package deal with the Barrell Bourbon, so I took it, too. Looking forward to trying that out.

    I have been very pleased with my Barrell cask strengths. Good buy!

    I've only ever had their Barrell Whiskey. Picked up a Barrell Bourbon for a buddy not that long ago - I think it was Batch #018? It was around $75-80 + tax. The Hichiceros I recently brought to Denmark was $100 + tax.

    I got these two together for $125 - no tax!

    Hadn't seen that version of Balcones before. I just looked it up after reading you post. Seems to be very good and popular. I like looking at the reviews on Masters of Malt - interesting to read foreign reviews of American whisky.

    Specs has 14yr store picks atm in the DFW. Looking for a review before I pull the trigger. $100 a bottle. Super tempted tho.

    Just felt like a rum sort of night. :anonymous:

    Pork chops, Caribbean rice, and sauteed veggies for supper made me feel nostalgic for our trip to Jamaica. So...some of the last bottle that I brought back.

    If I'd been smart, I'd have mailed myself a case. At $25 for a 1 litre bottle it was a steal.

    It's from a distillery in Waco and is a limited edition. While other Balcones are probably available, I could see this having less reach.

    If I can ever hook you up, just let me know.

    I've heard! I'll have to get my buddy to bring his 018 for a little side by side. :D
