I have one bottle from batch #2 and one from from batch #3. I noticed that the corks from the two batches are different material. On batch #2, the cork looks like your traditional standard cork, while batch #3, the cork material looks and feels like some type of synthetic (batch #2 seems porous and batch #3 is not).

Is anyone else experiencing the same thing?

Although I have not opened it yet, Batch 4 looks like a synthetic cork.

My bottle of batch 1 has a synthetic cork-- and it came off the bottle top, which is annoying.

Both my batch 4s have what looks to be a synthetic cork. Even though I'm a traditionalist, I think the synthetic is a better product that has less potential to pollute the contents of the bottle.

I'm ok with synthetic corks provided that they stand the test of time.

Mine did too...really annoying considering the $90 price tag.

My Batch 2 has real genuwine cork. Since the others are synthetic, that makes mine more rare and more valuable, doesn't it?!?!?! :D
