    Now that the cat is entirely out of the bag on this, how many of you are looking forward to paying $45 for a 375 ml bottle of "experimental" whiskey?

    That said, the French Oak one is quite tasty.

    Well, originally I had heard that it was going to be around $80 for that size so suddenly it doesn't seem so bad, but still might be more than I'm willing to cough up...gonna have to try it first.

    Being in California I don't think that's a decision I'll have to make...

    Maybe that's a good thing as I'd hate to be disappointed or even worse really like it and not be able to get anymore........

    Unfortunately, unless I get someone on the board to grab me a bottle and mail it to me, I'm not likely to see these Downunder.

    Having said that, I'd happily pay $45 per bottle for a single bottle of each... The question is, would I pay $45 for a second bottle?

    The other question I'd ask is.... if you really, really like one of these....how many are you going to bunker for later?

    I have to believe that part of what they are doing here is test-marketing some of the ideas they think might have legs. Everyone who has tasted the French Oak, for example, has liked it and it wouldn't surprise me if they have put down a few--maybe a few dozen--barrels of that one, that will be ready in a couple more years. They didn't do this purely for fun--although it was partly for fun--they did it in the hope of hitting on something they can turn into a successful product.

    What I think is really exciting is the idea of "experimental" American whiskey actually being marketed. How far we've come.

    I plan to live vicariously through tasting notes provided by a certain bourbon-only newsletter, the editor of which will undoubtedly receive freebies from Buffalo Trace just for that purpose.

    That is probably the only one I'd be willing to try for that price. Having said that, if I only see one of the varieties, I'd probably pick it up, but not all three.

    Let's both keep our fingers crossed on that one. From your lips to God's ears.

    $45 per bottle!! Wow! The experimental collection consists of French Oak aged, double barrel (aged, dumped, then back in a new barrel), and Firebox (extra crispy chared barrel). The French Oak is very good; the double aged is outstanding; the extra char is just okay.

    Still, the price reflects what is happening with Stagg and the rest of the Antique Collection. When we sell the cases we have adopted a policy of making them available to consumers at a fair price. Short supply and large demand drives up the price downstream.
