    You're welcome to have as much as you want any time you stop by the RO.
    Ah, now I see. I guess that is also why we do not have the SmB this year.

    And looking forward to when we can get together again, wish I could make Chicago this weekend.

    Back on topic, I would probably go for the Marriage but I love the 17yo SB I got at the gift shop so maybe the 17yo you have a chance at would be tasty.

    Best regards, Tony

    I would not hesitate to grab the Mariage over the others.

    What SmB LEs? I'd grab the current year without hesitation if it was available.

    I would definitely pick up the Mariage. Even though I figure I have a 10yr supply, I would absolutely buy more if I found it.

    My choice of the bunch is the Small batch expression, it just has a balance that appeals to me.

    I'll have to look for a marriage, out of the selections that aren't barrel strength what is everyone's favorite?

    I'm a big fan of the ordinary Small Batch (~$31/btl in Massachusetts) as a regular anyday pour. Great stuff.

    I like the Yellow Label in summertime, affordable, pleasant and easy over ice.

    I'm a big fan of the 2012 Single Barrel Le too, any opinions between the 08 and 09 Mariage?
