    Nah, think I'll leave future blends to distiller mistakes, Gary, and nights at the AWS.

    I expect I will be around long enough to read posts from those wishing they had stocked up on EC 12 back when they could.

    Given HH's practice of "stocking out" then showing up with slightly older vintages for 3x the price...i've considered it. This happens to be a local store pick as well. They did well.

    TPS FRSB OESQ for me. Started the evening with a pour of Bourbon and a cigar with a friend at a favorite local joint.

    I see what you're saying (if you are referring to the EC18), but I would stop short of calling that a "practice". Unless, there are other instances?

    Fair enough, practice is a bit harsh. The last year has seen them hold back 18yr, then launch 21yr at roughly 3x the price as well as ECBP which is choice barrels of EC12 without water added for 2x the price.

    Do I blame them in the given market, nope. But doesn't mean I'm happy about it either.

    Had a pour of '11 PVW15 with dinner and now finishing off the night with some '10 THH. Not a bad night!

    I've already bunkered several bottles from a store with both a particularly good batch and the cheapest prices I've seen for it locally.

    As for what I'm drinking, I'm giving my first bottle of ETL it's trial run tonight.
