It’s no secret that I get a lot of private barrels every year. I was even told by one big name distillery that I get more than any single restaurant in the country. All this to say, I don’t have to do a lot begging for barrels. That’s of course unless I’m talking to the Buffalo Trace Distillery.
Sheesh. They are brutal with their allocation. In the last three years, I’ve received a total of two barrels of the Buffalo Trace Bourbon. Two!
Thankfully they always take care of me in the Pappy bottle allocation for the bar, but this year they really came through. I called and asked if I was going to receive my barrel allocation of BT. They said not this year, but we have something very special to thank me for all my support instead. Hmm… “Ok, I’m intrigued, what do you have”? How about a private barrel of a 10-year Eagle Rare? Boom!!! This is such a special bottling. It’s going to fly out the door.
