    I have 4R single barrel and love it.
    Both the '10&'11 LE SmB are very good, you won't be disappointed .. The $89 price is too high, you should be able to find it about $20 cheaper.

    Yes, it's a $90 bourbon. It should only be around $79 at the most, but it's worth $90. Give it a few weeks to open up, but if you love the 1B, this'll knock your socks off.

    I'm referring to the 2011 btw. The 2010 is also sublime, but I only just opened mine in the last week.

    I hate to self-promote, but I did write about the 2011: http://whiskeywonka.wordpress.com/20...n-small-batch/

    Great review. That flavor profile is right up my alley. I am certain i wont find it anywhere else, so i will just have to flush that 20 dollars. Its not that big of a deal if its good whiskey.

    Thanks.

    I had the chance to try the 2012 LE Single Barrel.it was great juice.The nose was full of butter and it had a great spicy finish.It was 114 Proof.Iforgot to ask Al Young what the Yeast Strain was used in this bottling.IMHO the 2012 LE Single Barrel is gone to be something special.Just wanted to give our group a heads up.

    Regards,Mike

    The 2012 LE SB bottling is an OESK. I tasted it myself this weekend (at the 'N" Ultimate Whisky Experience) and agree that it is an excellent release.
