    I had a nice little taster of this at a recent tasting and was wondering if anyone had some info on recent successful trades?

    KH units welcome.

    When did they stop C&Cing it? '09, '10?

    Ad unfortunately I don't know what year I tasted.. But it was ridiculously good. And it sat there for a long time

    Anyone seen the recent video where Lauren Salazar discusses aged C&C La Folie? Hilarious.

    I traded some whiskey for one... :)

    The 07 I had was unreal good, the 09 was excellent but somewhat less good. These really age fantastically well.

    I had an '07 last year and it was great.

    Side question, why doesn't something like NB Kick, one of their one-off sours, age well? It's 8.5% but with a year on it, tasted like licking a barrel. It lost all of its 'kick.'

    I might be very wrong but it could have to do with bottle conditioning. Their recent sours are pasteurized AFAIK.

    It may have been something with my cellaring as well. It was just odd that the bottle took a 180 degree turn within a couple of months. Anyone else experience this?
