Although to be honest I don’t NEED the C920 either, even if reviews are better.
 

Not that it has stopped me before!

 

Although I am getting better about that. 
 

Or so I tell myself...

I was going to say, most people here don't NEED more bourbon. However, I don't think any of us could look at ourselves in the mirror if we didn't do our part to keep the bourbon economy flowing in this country. I for one, look to purchase my fair share of C920 when it hits selves here in NH and will most likely add to my B520 collection tomorrow.

NJ is stocked. I can get ECBP at $55 on pretty much any day. It is truly the best deal in bourbon right now. 

I guess with all the moping and frow browing led to my finally finding a bottle or two or three on the shelf yesterday, and in an unexpected place.  Our local Kroger is having a 30% off sale this week

OK, so my anal retentiveness didn't like the odd spacing between release 16 and 17 (which appears to be an artifact of copying a table?) so I fixed it. Or tried to since as best I can tell there is no

Is there a consensus on the best batches up to now? Sorry if this topic has been covered, if so ignore me and I'll do some more digging on the forums!

Just saw today that Fred Minnick had ECBP Batch A117 as his #11 best bourbon on the century.  I was stunned as I remember the general opinion back in 2017 being that it was the worst of all ECBP batches to that date.

But Fred’s never wrong is he? ?

Batch A121 is now out.

123.6 proof... so if memory serves correctly, this one's at a noticeably lower proof point that most of the previous A batches.

When this came out, the thought was that it was a massive step down from the old bottles (batch 1-12).  I even remember batch B517 taking a lot of the spotlight as the best of the new batches..

We should all be thankful it's not something that is still current.  I should still have my one and only A117 somewhere in my bunker.... someday I'll get to it.

 

 

Not that it matters to me, but I noticed PVW15 jumped (increased) another $500-900) on secondary after he voted this past years release so highly. 🙄

Let's hope that he doesn't start raving about WTRB.....

A117 was my least favorite batch of all ECBP I've ever tried.  I think I have a couple in the bunker because I didn't want to drink them after trying one. Yeah, yeah..I know I bought a few without trying first because they were the first of the new bottle type.

I bought and opened a bottle of A121, and so far I really like it. Of course, my preference has been the lower proofs, B519 and B520 over the past 2 years. This may end up being the best of those 3 for me

The store near me has received 1 case each of the past 3 weeks. I missed out the first 2 weeks, but was able to snag the last bottle from the most recent drop. Haven't had a chance to dive in yet, but hoping to get into it tonight or tomorrow.

i recall being disappointed by A117, didnt think it stood up to the batch before, which was the last of the old bottle style. i still have a couple bunkered away. i remember buying 3 because it was still 45-50 bux then.

I can't say I've ever been disappointed by an ECBP batch. Some are definitely better than others but all (to me) are a cut above the majority of what's on the market right now. However..........I absolutely miss the days when they cost 45-50 dollars. I put away quite a few then and haven't dipped into that stock because plenty of the newer/current batches are good enough to me to preserve the older ones.

I'm down to only a few B517 left, so put out the feelers for a box of the A121 batch. 

Fingers crossed!

I’m very curious to see what others says about A121 once it’s out there a little more.

 

So far, it’s reminds me a lot of what I remember OF1920 tasting like. It’s been a few months since I had any OF1920, but I might need to pick up a bottle & do a SBS with the A121.
