My Take

I'm not a huge Dickel fan, but this is a good opportunity to get your hands on a 15 year whiskey. The price is fine. It's online for a bit cheaper, but these are barrels exclusive to Ohio so I wouldn't balk at the price. Overall, this is one I wouldn't go out searching for, but if I saw it on the shelves, I'd give it a hard look.
