The Bourbon Thread

Anyone try the Bookers Springfield batch (2024-01) yet?

I’m active on the wine side, but I wanted to get some input from those in the know:

I purchased this bottle in 2012 (I think) at an informal tasting event in Chicago. Unopened and signed by Lincoln Henderson. Any thoughts on value or where you might consign?

Though my taste shifted more towards wine, I remember having Angel’s Envy when it was released and making a point to go to this midweek tasting.

The flip side is significantly reduced selection like Oregon and Idaho and basically no special orders any longer…1183 was passed by the people even if it was written by big retail. If we’d just passed the initiative in 2011/12 it would be very different.

No idea on value, but would be a neat bottle given it’s batch 2.0. They launched in 2011 (first bottle was distilled in 2010, but held… which is why you still see 10/10 on their corks), and Lincoln is a legend. Probably more sentimental value than spectacular bourbon, as I believe he was barrel picking at the time.

I am not sure exactly where to post this, so apologies in advance if this is the wrong place. But I randomly came into possession of two bottles of bourbon (pappy 12 and pappy 10) and I’m unfortunately not a bourbon drinker. I am however a wine drinker, and I would be interested in trading these two bottles for some fine wine if anyone is interested.
