    Re: Rare Breed vs WT 1855

    Scott (HT), I believe that the 1855 was only in 375s. I have never seen or heard of a 750.

    It's a blend of different age barrels; according to the WT web site, 6, 8 and 12yo stock.

    I know a guy in Canberra who has at least 5 750mL bottles of 1855 Reserve. He also has a few minis! He picked them up about 10 years ago in Australian duty free stores. Needless to say he isn't interested in trading or selling any of them
    Over the years I have also seen them on ebay, but at the time have either been chasing bigger fish or not had the funds.......
    He also has a number of the barrel proof KY Legend bottles, maybe 4?

    I have lost contact with this guy (after 2 new motherboards and losing all my stuff), but I did a trade with him once and I keep most details of trades written down. I will see if I can find him and get some pics of his flock. It's very impressive!

    Like them both but I've got to disagree.... WTAS is far superior (in fact, one of the best).

    It's all subjective. I like the more forward nose of the RB. If the AS had more of that I'd like it more than the RB.

    John B, I agree with you. The WTAS is a great pour.

    Found the guys phone number that has the 750mL 1855's, amongst other Turkey heaven. I will call him tomorrow and ask him to email me pics and I will post them here.
    I nailed a Stampede '55 today, never thought I would get one.
