I've not had the '07 bottling -- except at barrel-proof
How did you get the barrel proof?..
I helped select a couple of single-barrel bottlings. We tasted 6 barrels, both at barrel-proof and diluted to -- well, who knows, since it was eye-balled, and each barrel varies? (And, I'd previously gotten a liter barrel sample of 1985 distillate in a trade with Preston.)
Can I get some
No, it was essentially pre-sold. You may assume by the fact I've not tasted it at bottle-strength that I didn't buy any. I've tasted Pappy 23 enough times now that the mystique of three-figure, current-issue bottlings is gone for me when I can get multiple other fine bottles for the same dollars.
No one need agree with me there, granted.
