And its probably only going to get more scarce in the future. I actually prefer EC 12 to Weller 12. Thankfully, Heaven Hill has the largest stockpile of older bourbon.....hopefully they don't burn shit down again and they keep pumping out some great bourbons.
You and I already had this discussion, but I'm having W12 and FRSB side by side tonight. And while I love them both, they're very different. I love the softness of the W12 and the fact that it needs absolutely nothing, but I love the depth, spiciness, and richness of FRSB.
Bottom line - I love them both, and they're both a steal (if you can still find the FRSB kicking around).
I've been hearing the price of Weller 12 has been on the rise in the U.S. too - approaching $40 U.S. in some places, which I think has been the same trend with FRSB, which makes our prices a decent value, I think.
