    I did get the chance to nose it from the bottle but must have walked off right before the samples were poured. For what it's worth....it did have a very nice nose.

    I've done the same thing but I can tell the difference: the bottle of Baby Saz I have (from this year) beats my 2010 Handy hands down.

    From now on, I will be offering a Handy trade in program. In exchange for your bottle, depending on fill level, I will send you up to two bottles of Baby Saz.

But obviously the tornado is a departure from that mold. The single barrel was just dumb. So they haven't really done much beyond the first release that follows what I understood was the original plan (as announced)
    The single barrel is going to be the regular release.

    There's about a 1/4 of a bottle left.

    It's not that I don't like it. I like it fine. Just not at 90 proof. Makes you wonder what the current Saz would be like at even 100 or 107.
