    That's a good price for EWSB. However the 2001 is a new release and not all reports are favorable. I would buy one and if you like it, buy more.

    That's a great price he's got down there in GA, I'd buy it.

    I saw that today, too, Jack. I balked at least 4 times deciding to pick it up. I passed, but will have to go back and get a couple. It's a fabulous price. Instead, I yanked one of those $29.99 4RSB's.

    It had been going for $27.45, but sometime recently they dropped it. I'm not sure exactly when that happened; I usually scrutinze the price change sheets pretty closely, but this one got by me.

    I only saw the change a couple of weeks ago. I suspect there's still a good bit of 2000 about, so I may go out tomorrow and buy a bottle or two.

    Just discovered that the change is on the price change sheet for February, so I need to postpone that trip untl next Tuesday!

    Joe, I finally made my way over there and picked up a couple of those 4RSB's myself. I currently have one bottle open, but wanted to store a couple more in case they raise the price!

    Yeah, I like Mink's too. They have had 4RSB at that price for quite some time; I picked up a bottle there many moons ago. Everybody else around here has it for $10 more, but it isn't like I spend all of my free time in liquor stores or anything.

    Local store here has had FRSB's at that price for a couple of months now, which is down from it's regular price at $38. I've been pulling them off the shelf one by one. FRSB at its best is one of my favorite pours, regardless of what else I have open on the shelf. Also, I see this bourbon being sold at other stores online at prices upwards of $45 dollars. If that is the future of this label, then I'm going to take advantage of a $30 price tag while I still can.

    Glad it worked out for you, and that you were able to make it over there. It's worth the trip.

    Thanks for this - NC is just over the line, and I had thought of cutting over the mountains to see what was available.
