Ohio has lottery for the right to buy a USD 2,500 bottle of liquor

Ohio has lottery for the right to buy a USD 2,500 bottle of liquor.

COLUMBUS, Ohio- It’s a lottery, but these high-end liquor bottles are definitely not free.

Ohio Liquor Control is allowing people to submit their name and personal information this week for the right  to buy just one of these rare liquor bottles. The giveaway closes on November 15.

For OFC Bourbon, there are about 25 one-ounce pours. That’s $ 100 per pour or $ 150 per shot. Flavor notes say, “… this bourbon describes hearty cherry on the nose followed by caramel and lightly smoked oak. On the palate, there are dark chocolate, tobacco leaves and dates, followed by a persistent finish of leather, black pepper, and cinnamon ”.

However, a noticeably missing note is the smell of money.

The bottles in the lottery are:

  • 1993 OFC Bourbon ($ 2,499.98 plus tax)
  • Double Eagle Very Rare ($ 2,000 plus tax)
  • Michter’s 25-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon ($ 1,000 plus tax)
  • King of Kentucky ($ 249.98 plus tax)
  • Old Forester’s Birthday ($ 149.98 plus tax)

The tasting notes for the other bottles, according to Ohio Liquor Control are:

VERY RARE DOUBLE EAGLE
  • Even after two decades of oak barrel aging, this bourbon whiskey is surprisingly balanced. Hints of vanilla, toasted oak, and caramel create a gracefully aged oak flavor. Like nothing, you’ve ever tried.
MICHTER’S 25 YEARS OLD KENTUCKY STRAIGHT BOURBON
  • Complex whiskey, great mouthfeel. A symphony of flavors plays on different points of the palate with molasses, Christmas spices, chocolate, smoked toast notes, dried fruits, melted butter, and vanilla providing the reflections.
KING OF KENTUCKY
  • Nose: Deep notes of dried fig, dark caramel, and vanilla bean with slight chocolate sweetness, all sharp with a hint of caramelized orange and lemon zest and a hint of cinnamon.
  • Mouth: Dark caramel and dried fruit coat a layer of dark baking spices and toasted coconut notes illuminated with crunchy citrus notes.
OLD BIRTHDAY OF THE FOREST
  • Nose: Caramel and caramel dominate, supported by layers of honeydew and cornbread.
  • Mouth: The rich spice of oak and instantly warm black currant along with light maple, caramel cake, and white floral notes.
