I've drank my way through a few bottles of both Weller 12 and Lot B over the years, and have a slight preference for Lot B. Not a triple the price preference, but a preference nonetheless.
I believe CADMixes is correct that the Lot B is at least part Bernheim bourbon. It's my favorite VW and I much prefer it over the Weller 12. Sorry Joe.
Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.
I like Lot B, drank a lot of it over the years and it's worth what customers are willing to pay. For myself, no, the current cost exceeds my price/value requirements.
I also no longer buy Delamain Pale & Dry Cognac for the same reason.

I like it and I've got several in the bunker but had to pass this time when it was offered at $65. The most I've paid was $44 and that was for the Spring 2011 allocation.
I'm a long time Lot B fan. We don't talk about it much to keep it under the radar of the Van Winkle idiots. I have heard other people call it "Pappy 12-year-old."

Should we really believe that there's still Bernheim juice being used??
With the US prices being almost a third of Australian prices, you guys are getting a bargain..... I'd pay $50 for a Lot B any day of the week.... in fact, at that price I'd buy a case!
Cherry picked casks are the ones I am looking for. The lot B is one of my favourite bourbons, and I appreciate distilleries and producers that do the effort of finding these, instead of vatting everything together
