    I've got one of these and am having trouble scheduling a tasting. I just wanted to see if anyone had opened one recently and could report on it's condition.

    Opened one at the Central Water's Anniversary party just over a month ago, and it was as good as the day I bought it (if not better). But haven't heard anything more recently than that. My bottles were kept in the basement at 55 to 60 degrees.

    Thanks for the input, I've got mine at 54 deg in a fridge, will probably have it opened in a couple of weeks, just wanted to make sure it's not starting to fall off or anything. I've heard from others that they are still holding up well.

    This is good to know because I have one as well and am holding it for a tasting in 2 weeks.
