    My Rare was bottled 11/19/2010. Bottle of '08 here bottled 10/16/08. So, we assume that batch was made and put into the barrel in February, 2008. You're saying Rare was in the barrel for 29 months? '09 bomber here with 10/9/09 for a best guess of being barreled in February, 2009. It was therefore conceivable to me that Rare spent 21 months in the barrel, from the '09 batch, vice 29 from the '08 batch. Instead of being an ass ( as usual ), realize it was a valid thought. I actually did the math which is why I asked.

  2. ironic, or simpleton? i didn't call it over oxidized.

    anyway, let's address one thing:

    so, despite the different aging process, they're identical?

    so, with the different aging process, they're different?

    derp.

    Yes because I am always SUCH an ass. Ass hat even I was told once. You are assuming there wasn't a batch brewed specifically for Rare. Verbage states 2 years, so perhaps they are lying but that would mean 2 years. So brewed and barreled in 2008. I never said it was exact same batch as the 2008 bottles.

    I'm not familiar with poetry but I do know what Haiku is - 5 / 7 / 5 right? I am wondering what 2 / 5 / 11 / 7 / 3 is?

    Isn't Bourbon County always aged in barrels for 100 days?

    I believe 2009 was the first one aged to taste. I'm basing this off the label change since the old one stated it was aged for 100 days.

    Rare = 2008 BCS, not 2009
     
  33. 2008 BCBS isnt as nearly as good as Rare. I am 100% confident saying this... 23yr PvW barrels make all the difference in the world. Try them side by side. The truth will be evident.

    I'm sure people who have never tried Rare will strongly disagree with you. ;)

    And you are SURE it is because it was Pappy 23 and NOT because it was 2 years in the barrel?
     
  36. Those barrels are magical
     
  37. I think its both of those factors!
