    I suspect a lot of the negativity has to do with the retail price being $100...

    Exactly! At $46 for the pair, that is a deal to me.

    I always want to support local but when they charge crazy prices, I'd rather support Costco
    $500?! That is absurd. I can see why you dont have to wonder why the Lot B is on the shelve still.

    Or maybe for $46 he will get two​ bottles of crappy whiskey.

    I actually found the 4 Wood release to be quite nice. I think Woodford is on the right track with experiments in the Master's Collection with aging/finishing in different woods to round out the sharp edges of their pot still house style. A couple of the most recent years' releases really work for me.

    Well, I just saw a bottle of Lot B here in DC for, wait for it... $229.00. This is the most ridiculous price/markup I've seen yet.

    Saw a Pappy 23 for $329. I expected it to be in a locked case but it was sitting on the shelf.

    Shoot, I remember when Heaven Hill sent their 20+ year old whiskies overseas because they didn't think we would drink that old woody stuff.

    Newb here, so let me know if I should reverse this error(s) when I go back next week to pick up a transferred bottle of EWSB:

    OGD114 (4 bottles, 2 boxed, 2 not, seemed to be the same bottles) - price was <$30
    Colonel EH Taylor 100 proof (may have been BIB, didn't check carefully - it was in a whitish heavy cardboard tube) This was $70, and they had 2 bottles.
    Colonel EH Taylor 100 proof RYE (in a light yellow heavy cardboard tube) - I don't drink rye, so I didn't look carefully, but I think this was $70 also, and they had 6 bottles.
    A 375-mL bottle of The Sngle Oak Project ($60)
    JPS18 (batch 6) at $90.
