Single Oak Project – Quick Notes

As some people have found, I’ve added a condensed scorecard page with the ratings of all Single Oak bottlings I’ve had to date. If you are trying to figure out if the bottle on the shelf is any good (at least, according to me), I hope it’s useful.

Also a note for my LA based friends – The Wine House has a large selection of the Single Oaks on their shelves right now. I’ve seen a mix of release one and release two. If you’ve wanted to try one – or better still to split one among friends (they can be odd) – this is an easy time to pick one up. If you’re not in LA, unfortunately Wine House doesn’t ship spirits.

Single Oak Project release 3 will be reviewed shortly after I receive it. Stay tuned, as always.

    1. I’m not sure where you’re located, but the first place I’d check is any better liquor store near you. Most of the decent ones near me in Los Angeles have carried bottles from time to time. (The Wine House on Cotner seems to have a regular stock). 

      Your best bet is to ask to talk to the spirits buyer and explain your interest. If you’re willing to buy at the case level it’s virtually a no-risk transaction for the buyer and they’re usually more flexible. If not, you might be able to get put on a waiting list if the store has one. I’m not really sure how tight the allocations of BTSO are compared to, say, BTAC or Van Winkle

      As far as individual bottles, I think there’s a bit of luck required in hunting for them. The Party Source has had them from time to time, but that’s the only online retailer I know of who will sell at the bottle level.
