    I would snatch them up at that price. I bought mine (Frankfort on the label) for $15 and they are great!

    It sounds reasonable to me, still cheaper than Makers Mark. I think I paid $35 for a handle of paper labeled Weller SR a year or two ago.

    That is a bit cheaper than I see WSR for in PA, and I'd even pay a bit extra for the old-style label. Also, I think they may have dropped the age statement (might have just been the OWA that lost it).

    Nope. WSR joined the NAS ranks a while back.

    3-4 years, maybe? Look for stamp on bottom of bottle. WSR is $9.99 in ATL.

    4 years sounds right for the demise of paper labels. WSR then went NAS about a year ago?
