My Take

So many OHLQ releases lately, including the Summer Bottle Lottery that opened yesterday. With this release, the only one I'd be interested in is the Barrel Proof. It's worth the extra $16 to have the higher proof and not have the bourbon be watered down. If you see that out in the wild, I'd definitely recommend picking up a bottle. As for the other two, if you're a huge Jack Daniel's fan (I'm not), these could be for you... however, it's a hard pass for me.
