Ohio Division of Liquor Control (OHLQ) Announces Bonus? Lottery - Baker’s Single Barrel Select

The Ohio Division of Liquor Control (OHLQ) has announced what they are calling a 'Bonus' lottery for a limited supply of Baker’s Single Barrel Select for $99.99 + tax per bottle. By making this a 'Bonus' lottery, the State has made it much more inconvenient for anyone interested in entering or anyone who wins. For instance, the lottery is only open beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Wednesday, December 1, and must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, December 5 as opposed to the usual week. Additionally, if you win the chance to purchase a bottle, there are only 16 locations where you can purchase your bottle as opposed to every OHLQ location.

There are two barrels allocated for Ohio:
  • Barrel 1476919 - 107 PROOF (CENTRAL, SOUTHEAST, AND SOUTHWEST) - With flavors of dark chocolate & cocoa that coat the palate and aromas of vanilla & candied pecans roasting in the oven, this select barrel has an almost desert-like quality. The finish is well-rounded, ending with notes of light tobacco and espresso.
  • Barrel 1476968 - 107 PROOF (NORTHWEST AND NORTHEAST) - This complex bourbon with a robust finish has flavors reminiscent of chewy caramel changing to light butterscotch as it travels across your palate, and a citrusy aroma of bright orange zest leading to a soft char.
In order to enter, you'll need to provide the following:
  • Ohio Driver’s License Number / Ohio Identification Card Number
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Street Address
  • Date of Birth
  • Email Address
  • Preferred OHLQ store location for purchasing the product if you win

All entries must be submitted online at the OHLQ lottery website and must be purchased at the Ohio Liquor location designated during submission. Entry is free. 

My Take

As far as I can tell, this is the 7th lottery already this year and lottery fatigue is definitely starting to set in. As far as the product, $99.99 + tax seems like a fair price and I recommend you enter. Especially around the holidays... this could make a really cool gift for your friends (or favorite blogger).
