    Yep. Four Roses Single Barrel. Sometimes it goes by FRSB too. Not to be confused with the Four Roses Small batch - FRSmB.

    Glad to make the trade. I doubt that my trade will ever hit a bunker. I'll have to open an OFBB 2012 I still have some night and compare notes with you. Hope Eric enjoys his find as well. That was the last bottle left and I had a taste at the shop and last night again. A little sweet until you add a little water or in my case EC12 90Proof. My math came to 112.1 and it was great. Can't wait to start playing with the proof on your bottle.
    I'm not an expert but I have lots of opinions!

    6 bottles of HH White Label 6yr BIB
    1 bottle of HH gold label BIB
    1 bottle of VOB 100 proof

    My total bill was less than $90. In previous trips to Bardstown, I've spent almost that much on one bottle.
    Even more frugal than you with just one bottle...the EC 12 BP, this one being 120.9 proof at $54. It is stunning brought to 100 proof and do regret not picking up another but... gotta haves do keep rolling out with regularity.

Both are a little darker and have more depth and spice than I recall from other single barrels. Delicious!
    You did stock up on the 2013 Great Steamboat Race selection at the gift shop, right? I mean, it was discussed that this will be the sleeper whiskey of the year, and be highly sought after - probably making the PVW craze look like a bunch of hooey.

    I haven't posted for awhile because I haven't been drinking or buying bourbon recently for some stupid reason. But I am back on the wagon and to celebrate bought a bottle of Lot B today. It's the one VW I haven't tried yet for some reason.

    Col EH Taylor Single barrel.

    Speaking of the "steam boat race" I remeber when the "Bell" had two assist tugs waiting to speed the turn. Boy oh Boy did the "Queen" get taught a lesson that year.

    thanks for stopping in and making a trade with Steve and I. I have had a couple of pours of the ec12brlstrength in the past. Next time you are in, we might have a few private barrel selections in stock. First two willetts (6 yr old and 10 yr) plus a 4roses that we are selecting next week.

    Just one. I'm a sucker for a special label.
