    Batch 2 (137) is slightly hotter than other but a little more water takes care of that. Everything else is slightly less.

    Batch 3 (133.2) has a VERY nice nose, full flavor and very chewy. It continues to delight way after it is consumed. Only slight put off for some is it may be more "woody" (I think) than 134.2 which I don't mind at all.

    Batch 1 (134.2) it just amazed every time I drank it. Very similar to batch 3 but maybe just better overall very marginally. Smooth (with water), in your face with flavor, and chewy all perhaps very slightly less than 133.2 though but also less woody, again very slightly.

    The secret is the EC GS 129.7 may still be the best. . I did a SBS with 134.2.

    129.7 GS > 1 close to 3 > 2 but I pick up any that I see.

    All three batches are really good no matter how we cut it and my go to pour. For me, this definitely need a good amount of water so makes it a even better buy. Hahaha.

    Cheers,
    Hugh
    thanks for the very thorough review Hugh! That's what makes this site great.

    Me too. That's why I always have at least 2 different bottles of OWA open. It's easy to tell you to just open it, but I know that it's not always the prudent thing to do. That's why I have somewhere around 40 bottles open now.

    More 4R for me today.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    I think it was around $55. I'm kicking myself for not picking up a couple more while I was in KY in November. I usually pour about 1" in a glencairn. When about a 1/2" is left I put 3-4 drops of water in the glass. It just explodes with cinnamon after that. It's really fantastic. Trying to locate an additional bottle. :-)

    That's not too bad. I was thinking they were around 80 for some reason.
