    The current FRSB version goes for about $32, but it is sold in KY only. Is this someone an ebay seller or someone else that is buying it in KY and reselling it?

    Question

    Thanks for your reply. It is indeed an e-bay seller (which makes me anxious). As a general rule, Iím guessing, its not advisable to buy sprits on e-bay. But I donít think I will be in KY anytime soon and I am DESPERATE to try Four Roses. The e-bay seller wants about $57 for it (including shipping). Any ideas on how I might get my hands on a bottle at fair market value?

    I got one recently when a friend visited from KY, so if you have any friends from KY, or who will be visiting KY...

    Perhaps you can suggest a trade with someone from this board that lives in KY if you have anything unique or can get anything unique in your area.

    Is the bottle you are looking at 100 proof or 86 proof? I think the 86 proof is the Kentucky release. I saw one of those for 3,800 yen today, didn't get it though. I think the 100 proof is for the overseas market and the price you quote is about right for that release. It is a little higher than I have seen here, but not outrageously so.

    Hi abills, I live in SF and can probably get you a bottle of Four Roses. Send me a PM.

    I think you got that backwards Ed. The 100 proof is the Kentucky release and the 86 proof is the Japan release.

    Really? I had never seen the 86 before but had seen the 100 proof lots of times. Doesn't mean you aren't right.

    KY release is definitely 100 proof. I picked up a couple at the Sampler.

    Agreed - the bottle my friend got me at the Liquor Barn in Lexington, KY is 100 proof.
