    Re: Ezra B. single barrel 12yr.

    I pick up a bottle of this a few months back and while I don't have any specific "notes" on it, it was rich and complex and entirely enjoyable. I should have taken the time to post my opinion when I was drinking mine;sorry.

    Well, seeing as how the older reviews of this product are somewhat negative, and the newer reviews quite positive, perhaps it may be reasonable to assume there may have been a bit of a "learning curve" on the distiller's part with this product?

    I'm seriously considering picking up a bottle of it on my way to the cigar shop. With a price tag in the mid-$20's range, I suppose it's not really that big a risk-- if I don't like it, I can always find a 2L bottle of Pepsi to pour it in!

    Now, I'm not exactly the most experienced of tasters, but I will try to post some tasting notes in the proper sub-forum.

    Possibly the cause of the disparity is that some of the older tasters are comparing it to the discontinued 15yo. I believe that the 12 pales in comparison to that bottling, but for the price, the 12yo is not much of a risk, and a fine pour. The mid $20 price range is a great one to sample from, as there a lot of fine bottlings to be had.
