I concur.. Crazy .. Such a unique colour of Whiskey. Pretty much am going to keep and send in for Recraft Alden. Old school Whiskey, most of the newer Whiskey is Tan, nice but the old school oange shell is tits. I also remember when Cigar had an Olive hue. Now much like the current Cigar/Ravello/Whiskey are boorish brown shoes/boots for big bucks... At this point I opt for #8 anymore or Whiskey because Whiskey will darken to a nice colour eventually with patience .. then of course Black Shell.
Yeah, If my bedroom ceiling hadn't just caved (long wet story), I would have snatched them right up...but alas, no big purchases for next few months. I'm not a huge fan of the new #8, have to wait and see how it patinas, but for me its way too dark.
