    I've passed on similar bottles in the past, as I am pretty skeptical of them being anything special. Who would even be selecting these barrels for VA ABC? The folks I buy from certainly don't know much about whiskey.

    While a fine bottle, $130 is way overpriced for that. Got a second bottle over the weekend for $80.

    For $80 you should go back and buy the rest they have.

    Best regards, Tony

    Buy 'em all and give some to friends who can't afford them.

    Passed on some CEHT, including the new Barrel Proof, at the more or less regular price of $70 sitting on the shelf. Also a LS&B at the fairly typical price around here of $120.

    Also saw the BTEC Hot Box and Heavy Char bottles on the shelf for the fairly typical but somewhat spendy $55.

    I passed on both a 2010 and 2011 FR ltd edt small batch at $95. Mistake? I can go back and wasn't sure how they compare to the great 2012 and 2013

    I haven't had the 2010, but I do wish I had another bottle of the 2011. Is it like the 2012 or 2013? No.

    I have had the 2010, it was very good, but it was lacking a gear that the 2012 provides in spades. I have not tried the 2011, but I would go back and get both!

    I'd go back. By coincidence, I managed to pick up the 2010 last week and found it to be very enjoyable on first sip. Not as layered as the 2012 or as forward as the 2013 but still delicious in a very refined way. Based on my one session with it so far, I was really digging the pronounced cedar note on the finish.
