This phrase, "its 10 Year Old 100 Proof Tennessee Straight Bourbon, a limited two-barrel lot batch." strikes me as either too hard to believe or misleading. I cannot imagine that each bath was simply 2 barrels. As a point of comparison there is no clear definition of the phrase "small batch bourbon" but a rule of thumb is that a small batch means about 150 barrels or so.

It seems to me what this is is a blend of two barrels from the same batch (large or small). Because of that they cannot market it as a single barrels bourbon. I am certain it is not from a batch of just 2 barrels.

Good point. And...how many bottles in only 2 barrels of whiskey? Not enough to supply a marketing campaign. Sounds like a scam to me.

But then again, Bob Dylan is the guy who, when asked about the pot connection to "Rainy Day Women", said "Don't you people read the bible?".

crazy price but getting the basic bottle out over here in Europe must be on their mind, the bottle design is gorgeous, would love one of them in my collection. Very surprised they havent tapped up the Dylan market over here.

Only need to buy it once then top it up with Jamesons.

STandard barrel hold 53 gallons. So that is 106 gallons. First year aging usually reduces by ten percent with up 2% or so each year after. Let's say it is a seven year old bourbon, just guessing, that would mean two barrels would only yield only about 84.5 gallons which means it would be a little more than 426 750ml bottles.

Given that I suspect these are blends of no more than two random casks from a larger batch. The price would be MUCH higher if there were only 426 bottles. Besides if there were sop few imagine the marketing a numbered and signed series of bottle would fetch.

$500? Wow.
You’d think they’d at least include a Heaven’s Door luggage tag.

When this whiskey business first came to light, I suggested Bob Dylan would have been better off jumping into the exploding pot market, as Willie Nelson and a few other celebrities have done. Maybe he felt the field was already too crowded. Also, with so much weed being grown now, for the first time ever, the price is dropping.
A women I met here, who lives in Oregon, told me she can buy good pot for $10 a quarter ounce in Oregon(where pot is legal now). I have been paying $75 a quarter for years, here in New Hampshire. But recently, I found a new connection for medical pot from Maine at $60 a quarter. And with this limited edition whiskey they are promoting, you know the profit margin is huge. Then of course, there is the other issue - alcohol is a potentially deadly, potentially addictive hard drug, which causes more death and "social wreckage" than illicit drugs combined. Pot, o the other hand,
is infinitely safer, and is "life enhancing".
