    I passed on this as well, although I was able to taste it first. I hesitantly bought it on vacation here in FL when I could find no FR1B, and the clerk muttered out of the corner of his mouth that I could return it if I didn't like it. It tasted like unremarkable EC12 with any trace of personality removed. And it was $38.99. I returned it the next day for FRYL, my first one. A GREAT bargain at $17.99!

    I think it's safe to say that when you buy a LuxCo product, at least a good 35%-50% of the cost is going to the label.

    We won't close this thread until someone opens a new one.

    The Ezra B is a nice bottle for that price. I hope you can snag one or two.

    Passed on more GTS at $169.99. One of the store owners indicated the best he could do is a 10% discount If I bought four.

    Buy four? I'd have told him I have to pass because I'm the only sucker I know and would be hard pressed to round up three more.

    Went to buy a port at local shop in Encinitas and they had some LotB on the shelf (didn't bother asking the price as their bourbons are crazy priced. Rittenhouse 100 Rye is $39. I asked them how much they ended up selling the Pappy 20 and they told me $500. I just smiled and wondered if I overpaid for my Colheita, which I did...

    I always want to support local but when they charge crazy prices, I'd rather support Costco
