No they’ve been quarantined the whole week. They made an attempt Saturday (6 days ago) and there’s been no movement since then. I got the phone number for the actual Fedex warehouse and they told me they were in a trailer quarantined until Tuesday.

The problem is that lead leaching is a Function of time. There was one article that they measured the lead level in older Remy at like 20000 ppb (that’s 50 times higher than the Flint water and 400x the fda limit. No thanks.

+1. If you ball that way, the price was at or below the 750ml equivalent.
09 Cristal is probably the best vintage since 02 or 00 besides 08 so, I’m a buyer at that price. I have put away a good stash of the 09 mags but that’s the lowest price I’ve seen.
