    Has anyone else had this show up on a trade with small amounts coming through the wax? Vintage 2013..

    Nope. It's been a while but I traded away more than a case to multiple people in several different states but not one report of a leakage

    That wax so so thick and a pain in the ass to open I can't imagine it leaking. I had two cases and sent a bunch out to my trading partners without leakage reports.

    this is so weird then.. it was a very small amount ( im talking drops), but now im worried that it is going to get oxidized if I let those 2 bottles sit. and Im not sure the others ones may not have the same issue, just didnt show it.

    I had one leak on me (I was the recipient). It was wet around the bottle & wax and I could clearly smell it. I drank the one immediately. The others were fine fortunately. Hope at least your other two are ok.
