Not chill filtered. I'm definitely intrigued.

If it's half as good as Metze's, I'd happily pay $50-$75 a bottle.

MSRP is $44 so worth a shot for sure. The variations the NDP put out were single barrels around $60 and a port finished I think for a little more. A clerk at a local in Kentucky recommended the SB to us but I had already stoked up on too much.

Was told today by the bourbon guru at TPS that Four Roses has suspended it's Private Barrel program until further notice. So if you are fond of a particular recipe to stock up. All orders already in and in processing will be honored but no further orders.

$85.

It was the dregs. You had to be in line at 6:00 a.m. to get a ticket. They had 250 numbers to pass out, but only about 200 showed up. They had 72 bottles. Here's what they had (I went to the Burnsville store):

Wow. That looked to be a great sale, considering the number of bottles vs. people in line ratio too. Congrats on the deal!

Anybody else watching the mess on facebook unfold with the guy that was refilling/sealing bottles and mostly selling them off in Megas. Probably talking 10s of thousands the guy scammed.

I've seen ripples of it in conversation on bourbonr. I haven't been following it closely or anything. I try and avoid the 2ndary whenever possible in all of my hobbies/addictions.
