EC21 low fill line.jpgEC21 back label.jpgPassed on EC21 today at $140. Has anyone else noticed an issue with quality control on this product? The bottle that I saw had a lousy cork seal, which resulted in obvious leakage from the bottle. You can see in the photos that the fill line was down to the upper shoulders, whereas all the other bottles (in 4 other stores) were all filled up to or above the neck ring/shrink wrap. And on top of that, you can see on the back label that the hand-numbered date is incorrect (5-29-09, which would make it a 4 year old!), but I suspect the year digits got transposed. You can also see a stain on the back label, where the leaked bourbon dribbled down the bottle. I rubbed my thumb across one of the stains (there were several on the exposed glass areas of the bottle, including right down the front of the bottle), and was struck by a strong barrel wood aroma. An easy pass for me.
