    I have passed on this stuff many times for no other reason than the fact that it's basically $45-$65 moonshine. I've heard it's great, but I just can't pull the trigger. Someone can send me a sample and prove me wrong though.


    Edit: There are 3 Balcones Blue labels. I didn't know that. Baby Blue 92 proof, True Blue 100 proof, and True Blue Cask Strength (instead of Barrel Proof)(a little pretentious isn't it? )

    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    No, i've had True Blue Cask, True Blue and Baby Blue. Now i cannot remember what the difference is other than proof (TB Cask being 120ish proof, True being 100 and Baby being 86) and don't have the Baby Blue around anymore to check the label. Winston? You around here somewhere to clarify.

    Baby is much younger. TBCS is incredible. Tb100 is great too. I've got a few different CS batches bunkered. That good.

    I'm holding out for Winston to admit that he knows where the Commonwealth of Bourbon is located.

    It's different, I grabbed one, but it's not a 130 bottle IMHO.

    Surprise I'm saying this but in the spirit of sharing and I already have many bunkered, I passed on 4RSmBLe 2013.

    At least for today and from this store.
