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.
