    I have one of those. It's my first EWSB and I'm very impressed with it.

The price makes it a pretty logical choice.

    Trying my first pour of Larceny tonight. I really like it. I think my sweet spot is 90 to 95 proof.
    Definitely give it a go. It's like a mix of all their different barrels, watered down to 80 proof. It is really delicious and mild.

    I had a 2011 LE SB awhile back. It was an OBSQ. I really enjoyed it and it didn't have a very long life. My question/concern is TPS has this same recipe and the age is identical, right at 12 years. Anyway is FR repeatable? I know every barrel has its nuances but would I be as happy or was the 2011 LE simply exceptional and would the TPS bottle be a disappointment? Sorry if I should put this question somewhere else.

    I just opened a ECBP. It is really nice. Full nose and very flavorful. Not a lot of alcohol burn. I'll buy more if I can find it.

    Of course there is going to be variation, especially with single barrels, but 4R seems to be more consistent than pretty much anyone else IMO. I wouldn't hesitate to give it a go. Especially because the one thing that isn't identical is the price.

    Thanks for the help. I may wait on the TPS purchase. My wife just surprised me with a trip to the bourbon trail in July. Woohoo!!

    You'll have to ask Marc, Justin, Steve, Ben, Tom, or Greg what they thought of the F yeast...it was the only bourbon all night that all of us had in the glass at the same time!
