I have a ton of barleywines and I've pretty much lost my taste for them.  :mellow:

i haven't completely lost my taste for them, but i probably have more than i need as well.

From now on, only Hardy's in the cellar for me, can't really stand old oxidized barleywines.
(still have one bottle each of the NG Barleywine & Iced BW, only because Dan Carey mentioned in an interview that they need a few more years still) :o:

do you know any more about the iced barleywine?  i found a couple bottles.  did they only do it one year?

I've heard they won't do it again, because WI law can be interpreted in such a way that the icing process is considered distillation :rolleyes:
Unless NG starts a distillery too (or buys an additional license for one), they are steering clear due to the alcohol laws.

ok, so that means that both bottles i have must be from the same year.  one label looks "older", but is the same label.

The "Iced Barleywine" is older than "Barley Wine", I want to say it was 2009?
