A local shop has some older bottles of this juice at $25 each. I think they have been in the store for 7-8 years or maybe a bit longer, I should check the bottle bottoms next time I go in. Any thoughts on character of older vs newer 90 proof? I've tasted the current stuff and it's certainly OK for the price. The older might be any better? thoughts?

Cheers,

RW

If you are talking about the ER101, your post could easily be compared to someone going to a corvette forum and saying:


My neighbor has a 1968 stingray that has been kept in a climate controlled garage and only has 10K miles on. She wants to sell it for $5,000... should I buy it?

I'd hurry back to get them. I always keep my eyes peeled for some Eagle Rare 101, but never can find any.

Buy them - they are great. Which I could find those up here!! I'd pay double what they are asking!

I'll mosy back and pick the two up soon. I was actually more interested in talking the clerk into selling me a bottle of Old Hermitage 6yo that looked part of their personal collection behind the counter. It had a hand written $3.99 on it. They had two of them I suggested she could at least sell one of them, and I'd be happy to toss in a little extra for her effort ;-)
