The price is $599.98 plus tax. Per the ODLC, the information on Blood Oath is:

Pact No. 1
  • AROMA: Vanilla and spice. Peppery with maple caramel and chocolate notes. Plenty of oak and an apricot finish.
  • PALATE: Rich notes of vanilla and cocoa, smooth honey with notes of tobacco and orange.

  • AGE: A blend of 12 year rye bourbon, seven year rye bourbon, six year wheated bourbon

Pact No. 2

  • PALATE: Slightly sweet and spicy with a velvety smooth finish.
  • FINISH: Smooth, long and dry with a touch of spice and fruit.
  • AGE: 11 year rye bourbon, 11 year wheated bourbon, seven year rye bourbon finished in Port barrels for six months.

Pact No. 3
  • AROMA: Caramel, vanilla, stone fruit, cocoa, oak.
  • PALATE: Caramel, vanilla, creamy smooth from the barrel finish, toasted oak, apricots, higher spice than the previous pacts but still ultra-smooth for the proof.
  • FINISH: Long lingering spice, balanced and surprisingly-smooth at this high proof with lasting caramel and oak.
  • AGE: 12 year rye bourbon, seven year rye bourbon, seven year rye bourbon finished in cabernet sauvignon barrels for six months.
Auction entries will begin at 6 p.m. Entries will be collected for 90 minutes. At 7:30 p.m., the winning names will be drawn. One entry per person, must be present to purchase. A valid ID must be presented when entering and to verify winners. Must be 21+ to enter.

In my opinion, this seems like a crazy amount of money to spend on a brand of bourbon that I've never heard of before this announcement. However, if you go to the auction, or know of anyone who goes, drop a note in the comments with your experience.
