First a warning: This stuff isn't for sale - at least not yet. Which means that the first thing you need to do to get hold of it is to ask Krampert to start producing it... which takes money, so perhaps the very first thing you should do is to buy a bottle or two of his Finest Bay Rum... don't worry, it's well worth the asking price.

In short, everthing I like about the healing and moisturising properties of Krampert's Bay Rum is present in his experimental menthol as well - and just like his Bay Rum this is some seriously good aftershave. And just like the Bay Rum, I found myself putting some on even if I havn't shaved just to enjoy the moisturising properties and great scent.

The major difference is off course the menthol. It is refreshingly cooling on muggy mornings, and if I havn't woken up before putting it on I sure am awake afterwards - even more so on the days I gotten a minor nick or two.

This is a seriously good aftershave - if you enjoyed Krampert's Bay Rum, you'll enjoy his Menthol if (when) it'll be available.

There are 2 things I'm waiting right now to become available for purchase which I plan on getting immediately. The LE Menthol of Krampert is one of those. I also have a little of his experimental menthol and it's just as Hans said above. Same great healing & moisturizing properties as his Bay Rum. Only the menthol & scent are different. While I love the Bay Rum, the Menthol is my favorite of the 2.

I'm not a Bay Rum fan so I will be pouncing on the menthol as soon as possible. I have no doubt that it will be amazing.

Is this a mentholated Bay Rum, or just a menthol product alone ?

If the menthol version is as good as the original bay rum then it should be excellent. Hopefully soon.

Thanks guys!

Gene, it is nothing like the bay rum. Completely different except for the moisturizing package. It was already in the cards that I wasn't going to make anything with out those magical moisturizing ingredients. If I didn't include those, then it might be just be another "Ehhh" AS splash. Except it might be just a smidgeon better in moisturizing than the Bay Rum because I could add something in the background that no one (except me) knows is there. But it's not even close to being released. Probably not until next summer at the earliest.

Hans, if you like the cooling of the KF menthol wait until you get your hands on the LE. It's on steroids.

Rats ... I've been enjoying a little mentholated BR this summer and was hoping you'd come out with one as well.

Brian, I love the KF Menthol and am very much looking forward to the LE Menthol.

...the rate I'm collecting aftershaves they will all be from you - not that it's a bad thing, far from it Tongue
