    Its a clear plastic with ridges.
    Seems that alot of folks have cork problems one time or another, one company to another...

    I note that in many of the bottlings (with gift boxes) they throw in a extra cork

    I will bring "extra" corks to the Sampler for those of you needing replacements.

    Grant--

    I just joined this board today, but your message blew my mind. Last summer my brother in law and I sat down to a bottle of his WT Rare Breed (I have a wonderful B-i-L--thanks, Ron!) As we were opening it for the first time, son-of-a-gun if the cork didn't break in the bottle. I understand there are cork problems from time to time--any wine drinker knows that--but maybe this is happening more often than it should to WTRB.

    I bought another bottle of Rare Breed at the same time as the one mentioned in this thread. I have yet to open it - but I'm really curious as to what the results will be. I will make sure to save the replacement cork that they sent me - just in case.

    This may sound stupid and I know its not the best way to fix the problem, but I save old corks from empty bottles for just this case. So when a cork breaks I have a back up to replace it with.

    Not stupid at all - this is a good idea.

    BTW - I believe that CrispyCritter mentioned this idea first at the beginning of this thread.

    I had a Wild Turkey Russell Reserve 90 proof cork break off from the top.
    An eariler suggestion about saving corks is a very good idea.

    Yes, but we borderling OCD types have to decide how many is enough. I must have close to 20 in my drawer right now. The next time my wife is marauding for postage stamps, I might end up taking some good-natured crap. Maybe I deserve it.
