Chasing peppermint bark speedway with malort may be the best/worst idea I've had in the past few months. 10/10..would not recommend.
So far I've only opened the raspberry. My big idea is trying a little of one then blending in one of the BASS bottles I picked up as well.

Awesome there's always that one variant. Lol

I ended up opening a coffee cake and a BASS blending was a nice touch to finish them off.

Side note not offering BA year round in this smaller format feels like a miss to me. That bottle was on point!

Total including shipping for the Cantillon 6btl Autumn pack (yes, Etre finally picked up on friday and then emailed me this morning) was 266.40USD.

This included the 6btl pack, proxy fee, shipping, and dhl express shipping. I split the shipping and dhl express with a buddy by combining our packs into a single shipment. This seems to have saved us about 70 USD each. Since proxy fee, shipping, dhl was 171 euro for 1 pack, and 215 euro for 2 packs.

For those that were curious...if anybody really checks this forum any more.
