On the way home from Minnesota yesterday, I passed on a WT Tradition and some Fleishman's Rye. Joe

Left on the shelves in Nashville area complete BTAC 09. There is at least 12 Hamby bottles. Only wish I had grabbed a saz 18. I don't understand how BT alots the antiques. The current bottling ships within the month and Knoxville will sell out within a week of placement on the shelf. It would make sense to me to place your product in higher concentration where there was increased demand. tim

Gotta disagree with you doc. If that were true you'd have no hope of future dusty hunting and you'd get what happens here in VA where some hoarder (or worse reseller) can inventory and buy up all the best bottles with virtually no effort. Call me old school, but I love the hunt!

Not sure if this qualifies, but I passed WTKS 2003 dark top without logos. February 2003.

AA Woodford MS maple at $90 and a Sazerac 18 from 2010 for $69. I'm not a fan of rye.

went into the store to see if there was any pappy on the shelf, and saw jack daniels single barrel on sale for $35 from the usual $45. I've never had a pour and it took some will power not to grab it off the shelf.

Went looking for Pappy 15 also, found two bottles .... @ $89.98 each!!:bigeyes:
I passed. Instead got ORWV 10/107 for $39.99.

That's insanity. Truth be told though, before I knew anything about bourbon or pricing I once overpaid royally for some PVW15. I'm never doing that again.

Passed on the bottles of 2010 WLW and Thomas Handy....had a hard time spending more money.

However I did end up picking up a 2010 George Stagg, Old Weller Antique 107 and some Four Roses SB.

First time I had tasted the OWA in the new bottle, broke it open tonight....pretty impressed for the price. However like the old look like my bottle of ORVW10/107.


Have a feeling I am going to really regret getting a bottle of the William Larue Weller.

I passed up on two bottles of the 2008 BTAC WLarueW, they had it priced at $89.99 plus 6% sales tax.
2010 state minimum is $70.97 plus 6%.

Got a call today from one of my local liquor stores saying they got in some pappy, 12, 15, 20, 23.

So I went down there, had 3 bottles of the 23($320ea), 3 of the 20($119), 12 bottles of the 12 and the 15 for $69 and $89. Could NOT believe they had that many and could NOT REALLY believe they had them for that price. I hate the ABC prices pushed in this state to the local package stores. Alabama sucks.

Around where I am, it's the opposite. The ABC stores have them for more moderate prices (when you can find them) and the small local guys generally mark it up pretty ridiculously because they know how rare it is.

$99.99/bottle has become quite common, unfortunately. Although it wasn't Georgetown, I'm curious as to why you ask?

I did find a ND OGDBIB in Georgetown a few weeks ago.

Just called a TN liquor store where i got my Stagg a couple weeks ago for $87.99. I ended up passing on the WLW, but now...

He got in some Pappy and some more Handy, ER17, WLW. So ive got to figure out what i need. I have not had the VW12, is it closest to ORVW107?

PVW12B - $51.99
PVW20 - $99
Handy - $82
ER17 - $82
WLW - $82
OWA7/107 -$23

Looks like I am getting a VW12 and a couple more bottles of OWA but having bought Stagg, PVW15/20, orvw107 and a bottle of OWA already i am having a hard time snagging that rare WLW bottle.

Georgetown (and the surrounding area) tends to have a pretty good selection, but is a bit of a "tourist trap" as far as prices go. There is enough money in the area that several liquor stores will stock BTAC/Pappy's etc, but they always charge a premium and regularly get it. VABC has Lot B for $49.99 all day and sometimes on sale as low as $40 (that's when I buy).

Passed up that new Woodford Maple Finish. $100 a bottle. Umnope.

Passed up Some Lot B for something close to $60. Umnope.

Passed up 5 bottles of GTS 2010 for $78.50. Umnothanks.

Do the state stores carry Pappy where your at or is it just the local little man?

Passed on a bottle of 2010 stagg tonight. They were priced at $85 plus tax. Purchased 2 for a friend looking to give them as Christmas presents. Asked about any pappy and was told by the owner that he keeps ALL the pappy in the back and only sells it to his regulars, which he defined as people who come in at least once a week.

Since this wasn't local I obviously am not one of those people. Will probably go back by and snag the last staff if it's still there after thanksgiving.

Was dusty hunting in NYC and passed up on a handle of Wild Turkey--it was hard to see what exactly it was, but I'm pretty sure it was the 8 year, 101. Totally weird shaped bottle, strange old-looking label, about $45. I kind of wish I had picked it up now, or at least checked the year.

They also had some kind of alternate WT--an old Rare Breed, maybe--but it was all behind glass, and I was a bit shy about asking them about it.

I did not pass up on the OFBIB that has a tax strip that says distilled in 71, bottled in 76. $17 with tax!

Passed by ETL for $24, which is the best price I've ever seen.

After weeks of snagging so many bottles, including some Pappy and Stagg, I feel like I've got to cut back.

Last time I was at my store, I passed on PVW23 for $169.99. I'm not at that buying level (yet? :)) but from what I've heard, that sounds like a good price. I did leave with GTS 2010 for $59.99 though. :cool:

You're right, Choice. That is a very good price on the Pappy. But, you also did very well on the Stagg at $59.99. Nice pick.

Yep, Alabama sucks. I am in the wrong state, was this in PA? I am heading over to Atlanta the first weekend of December and I am keeping my fingers crossed on some Stagg and Pappy.

Pappy 23 for $339.99? Couldn't believe it. Another store was selling 2010 Saz and Handy for $99.99, yet had a Weller 12 for $18.49. Go figure. (yes I bought the Weller, had to for that price)

Good call passing up those prices. I will buy Pappy at 60 or less, and GTS Handy or WLW at less than 65, but any more and they can sit. If somebody else wants to pay stupid money for em, fine.

While shopping for beer over the holiday weekend at a local spirits shop, I passed on the 2010 BTAC, ORVW 10/107 and JPS 17 yr. The JPS has been sitting on the same shelf for months and has a layer of dust on them. The BTAC were $70 each and this is the first year I'm not putting any down in the bunker. The ORVW was $40 so I passed since I have 3 or 4 in the bunker. Walked out with beer only (Southern Tier Mokah and Sam Smith winter seasonal) and I'm ok with that.

While visiting my parents for the holidays, I left the 3 PH first release, 27 yo PH, Pappy 20, lot B, WRMC 4grain, and WRMC sonoma. I did grab the ORVW 10yo107, pappy 15, and MM 1997 UT championship 1L. I'll probably grab the 20 at Christmas if it is still there. tim

Passed on a lot of great bottles, just getting a little too pricey.
ORVW 10/90 @ $34.99, 2 bottles
Lot B @ $54.99, 8 bottles
PVW 15 @ $69.99, 6 bottles
PVW 23 @ $229.99 1 bottle
2010 BTAC all @ $79.99
GTS, 6 bottles
WLW, 5 bottles
ER 17, 9 bottles
Saz 18, 6 bottles
Handy, 6 bottles
Last year at this time, I paid $59.99 each for all of the 2009 BTAC, $69.99 for PVW 20, $48.99 for PVW 15 and $27.99 for ORVW 10/107 at this same store. I'm glad I bought all they had.

Anyway, I sure all of these will all be gone in a week, well maybe not the ER 17 and the Handy.

I picked up a bottle of VW Rye for about $50 but passed on the rest of the VW collection. PVW 15 was priced at $69.99, but I could have gotten 20% off of that, making it pretty reasonable. I have a bottle at home though.

I did a double take, but then passed on 3 bottles of 2008 Larue. Very unusual for that to be sitting anywhere around the MSP area! Same place had some '09 Saz18 and '10 ER17.... And the USUAL entire row of Handy from the past year or more.

A couple bottles of Bourbon Supreme with faux tax stamps. Really glad I skipped this after reading some of the reviews on here. Sounds like one of the worst ever.

1.75 Old Taylor 86 proof from 1983, I think. May go back for this, depending on whether the consensus around here is that it's safe, etc. (see my other post in the "collectibles" forum).

8yo Old Charter with the old label (the age statement stamped across the label)

A couple more bottles of WT CGF 12yo that I just couldn't fit into the budget today--I will be going back for these unless somebody beats me to them.

Special Reserve
12-04-2010, 07:09
How could you pass up those CGF 12's? I think you should be doing your part to stimulate the economy or give me the change to stimulate it for you.

It was tough but the bourbon collection has expanded rapidly the last couple months between the release of the BTAC and finally finding dusties. I've been lucky with the dusties, mostly due to improving my searching technique and heading further out in the state. Those cheesy turkeys will get a good home soon enough. :)

After the last few days, they now have a home. I did, however, pass up several things:

1) BHC Dickel and Harper -- same bottles I've mentioned before. If I thought I had a chance at an OC Prop. Reserve and Weller Cent, I'd pick them up just to get the whole BHC.
2) Baker's in what I think is an old label. Mostly beige background, black letters.
3) Virginia Gentlman 80 proof
4) PVW 15yo at $59.99. I just have a hard time pulling the trigger on that one when I got two bottles last year for $50.
5) PVW 20yo at $109. Not a bad price, I guess, but I can't stand paying that much for it when it was only $50 or at the beginning of this decade.
6) WTRR101. This one was tough, but it was priced at $100! The guy offered me a deal on at $89, but that still seemed high. It was signed, so I guess he thought it was much more valuable that way (or I'm really off base in what I think a bottle of that should go for).

1) I may have grabbed them just because.
2) May have been worth it to compare to a new bottling
3) I like the 90 proofer better, probably would have passed too.
4) Ouch. I'd compare it to replacement value and 59 isn't a bad price, IMO.
5) I don't drink enough of it to have to replace the ones I have put away by paying 109.
6) 100 bucks is nuts, so is 89.

OWA 7/107 with the gold veins.
AA100.

I passed them up because the owner told me they weren't for sale. Chatted with him some. Maybe next time I'm in, I can convince him to let me make him an offer.

BTW, is the AA100 still distributed in the US? The shop owner said it was Japan only now, and I'm not sure I've ever actually seen any in a store.

A few hours of hunting resulted in passing up a lot. The only thing I really thought hard about was GTS. I've been looking for it but $85 is just too much. I picked up ORVW 10/107 and two bottles of the old OWA 7/107 with age statement for $90 total. That made it easier to leave the GTS.

From what I heard at the KBF, AA BIB has been discontinued by BT. I'm sure glad I was able to find a few a couple months ago. I think it's a pretty decent bourbon. Factor in the price, (I paid $12.99 a 750) and it's one heck of a value pour. Joe

Well, regardless of bourbon distribution, I am actually quite excited to be making my way out to WA towards the beginning of the summer, and look forward to meeting some of you bourbonians that live out there. It'll be a big move for me.

I don't have much to add in way of the actual subject of this thread, though. I may just not know where to look, but I don't find many surprise goodies in Tallahassee, so when I do I don't pass them up. Unless you count the $250 Pappy 23 that has been sitting on the shelf of my local store for the past 6 months, collecting dust.

I came across a few bottles of EWSB '95/'05. I've only tasted it once, the newest version, and wasn't a huge fan. They were $28 which seemed a bit high since I can get the new ones for under $20. Was that a mistake?

Came across some more 141.4 Stagg that I may have to go get, also saw some VWFRR for the first time ever in this area. Some place that had Stagg had '09 and '10 Saz18, '10 ER17, I think it was '08 and '10 Larue so if they sit there a while I may eventually be adding them to my absurd bunker.

Please, let us know when you make it out here. We will give you a proper introduction to the area. My bunker is always open. Dave (CaptainQ) can attest to this... he drinks more of my whiskey than I do. I certainly don't claim my bunker to be absurd, but there is enough there to keep you busy for quite some time.

Passed on a lot of great bottles, just getting a little too pricey.
ORVW 10/90 @ $34.99, 2 bottles
Lot B @ $54.99, 8 bottles
PVW 15 @ $69.99, 6 bottles
PVW 23 @ $229.99 1 bottle
2010 BTAC all @ $79.99
GTS, 6 bottles
WLW, 5 bottles
ER 17, 9 bottles
Saz 18, 6 bottles
Handy, 6 bottles
Last year at this time, I paid $59.99 each for all of the 2009 BTAC, $69.99 for PVW 20, $48.99 for PVW 15 and $27.99 for ORVW 10/107 at this same store. I'm glad I bought all they had.

Anyway, I sure all of these will all be gone in a week, well maybe not the ER 17 and the Handy.

79.99 is all i see for BTAC in CA as well. That is the best lot b price i've seen out here though.

I said "Thanks but no thanks" to 2 bottles of VWFRR. It is one of my favorite whiskies, but $74 is pretty steep. I've often wondered at what point VWFRR would become too expensive for me, and I got my answer today. Seventy-four dollars.

I have a good relationship with the store owner and I asked why he's charging so much for the VWFRR (and 2010 BTAC at $94 a bottle). He said, "people will pay it." I guess I can't argue.

It was in another state. I can somewhat understand jacking up the PVW 15 prices because it is fairly difficult to find. However, here in MD, the 20 year is readily available for $95-$110 so what's up with the markup?

I went with the short story, here is the complete version for your amusement....


We have the following in stock at the *********** (ed) location:

12 Year ...$99.99
15 Year ...$129.99
20 Year ...$225.99


There is a "qualifier", in order to buy a bottle of these allocated spirits, the company required us to purchase some of their other products. We pass on this same requirement so that we can continue to repurchase Pappy and have it available for our customers.

You must purchase any two bottles of the following items for every bottle of Pappy:

Buffalo Trace White dog Mash#1 375ml ...... $19.99
Buffalo Trace Straight Bourbon Whiskey 750ml ...... $29.99
Platinum 7x Vodka 1.75ml ...... $17.99
Rain Vodka (regular and all flavors) 750ml ...... $19.99

The latest one Will, the wheat version, which sells for $69.95 at my local. As a general rule I prefer rye recipe Bourbons so the Parker didn't excite me that much. Over the years I have swallowed a lot of high tone whisky and my curiosity level no longer insists I buy whatever 'newest' expression is out there.

A few days ago I saw two bottles of '09 Mariage on a shelf for $71.99. I bought one, but passed on buying both.

Lately I have been going through the Four Roses lineup (Yellow Label, Small Batch, Single Barrel, and 2010 Small Batch LE). I have really enjoyed them all and find the Single Barrel and 2010 Small Batch LE to be excellent.

I hope the '09 Mariage is as good as everyone here has said. And if it is, maybe I should go pick up that last bottle...

I was very excited to see it sitting on the shelf at my local store until I noticed the price: $48.99 :bigeyes: Considering the regular KC is $25.99 at the Sam's club just down the road I passed. I thought it was going to retail at about $40 and I would have paid that without hesitation. I just have a hard time imagining this to be in the Lot B or Blanton's echelon which is the same price. Hoprfully I can find it cheaper soon as I really do want to try it.

Didn't have a choice in passing this one up today.

After buying a couple of bottles I was talking to the store owner about various things bourbon when he mentioned a bottle he found in his grandfather's basement a while back. Then he pointed up to the top shelf next to the check-out counter where there was an I.W. Harper (with a lot of dust on it) and told me it wasn't for sale. He let me take a look at it and I saw that the tax stamp on it said 1951.

I asked if he was sure it wasn't for sale, and being a good salesman, he told me I should ask him everytime I stopped in. Something along the line of it's not for sale now, but you never know about later. Probably for the best since I haven't got a clue what I'd offer him for it.

The pictures aren't very good. Between my lack of skill and the quality of my cell phone, didn't stand much of a chance.

Also passed (for now) on some late-era ND OGD 86's. I bought a total of 5 of them, and that's all I could muster for now.

Also passed on some very dusty Canadians: CC, Windsor, Vo... I do like a Canadian now and again, but I already had six bottles on the counter.

Edit:

Also, a few days ago passed on a Hirsch 16 year with the yellow foil top. 1st one I've ever seen. But it was $260. Sorry, can't do it.

FYI- I always heard that Dant BIB from 80's and before was great. Might want to check those dates, especially if they are on the cheap.

This bottle had no info at all on the neck tag. Strange. Joe

I've seen more than a few older ones that ended up that way because the gold paint pens they use for those tags don't seem to hold up very well over time. One bottle I have from 2004 is missing about half it's info and the way it rubbed off, it looks like it was never completed. It looks like it was just from regular handling of the bottle that caused the writing to rub off.

There were 3 bottles of WTKS. One was a dark top from 2006 and the others were the lighter tops. Is the dark top worth picking up?

I also chose to pass on the Colonel EH Taylor today while at Binny's. I did buy some wine and made my $10 credit for hitting the $500 mark on wine purchases. I then couldn't decide whether to use it toward their Knob Creek SB bottling versus their Elijah Craig 18 bottling and came home with neither but that will be remedied soon.

Nah, that's just a price point that will help lower demand. :grin:

If you have people driving a 600 mile loop to find bottles and virtually every bottle that hits the shelf is snapped up with great speed, your price is too low. I think we learned that in Econ 101.

Passed up 2x Handy ($65), 2x Saz 18 ($65), 2x VWFRR ($60) found North of White Marsh/Baltimore (I was on a trip back home from NYC). It's very difficult to pass up VWFRR when I see it, but I have three bottles at home and I'm running out of space. They also had Knob Single Barrel and Knob Small Batch signed by Fred Noe, which was kinda cool. They had a bottle of Pappy 23 for 200 bucks and some ORVW 10/90 for in the mid-30's I think.

This week I've again passed by the Jeff's Presidential Select 18yo. I still have a bottle of 17yo and just can't seem to get myself to shell out the cash for the 18yo just yet. When my local liquor emporium drops down to two or thee bottles I'll finally have to break down and get one, though.

I also keep passing by the Woodford Reserve Maple and Sweet Mash. I still have some Four Grain (which I love) left and I'm trying to get through the Sonoma-Cutrer finish, so the thought off buying the Maple or Sweet Mash for more than $100 each just doesn't set well. I need to do a bit more research before picking up either.

I'm personally not a fan of Old Pogue. The one bottle I had was relegated to cooking. I did keep the bottle for experimenting with mixing various bourbons to try to find the "perfect" bourbon.

An EWSB 1999 for $33. The 1999 didn't get much love and I can get this year's for $27 and some change.

I was out of town today so stopped by every (6!) liquor store in that area. Absolutely nothing! They were mostly the converted gas station type with all the whiskey behind the counter. Everything was expensive and I can get it all here. The only thing I found was that EWSB. Pretty glad I didn't because I got a lead on some VW stuff! Thanks again Wainwright.

I got a call from a store today that is holding me a bottle of the BTEC 1993 rediscovered barrels. I got another call about the 1991 bottling.

I"m not all that interested in these myself, but thought someone around here might be. Send me a PM if interested.

I passed on a raft of overpriced Van Winkle today. Lot B for 70.00, Rye 90.00, 20yo 160.00, 10/90 46.00, 10/107 50.00...

At those prices, they will be there a very long time.

At those prices I would have passed them up too

Yea, there is a place near me that still had 3 bottles of Lot B for $45 that I have been passing on since I already have 7 bottles of it. I pick it up still if I find it for $40 or less but I just don't really feel the need to add any more at $45 as that's the standard price around here. At $70 I would be passing all day even if I had 0 bottles.

At $45 it would be in my hands. I think it is $55 in MI and hard to find at that.

Yea, the thing is that I already have 7 and come this fall I will be able to get a case at $45 if I wanted so there is really no urgency to snap them up. The last bottle I got was $38.99 I think and while I wasn't looking to buy any more Lot B right now I wasn't going to pass on that price. That was actually bottle #8 now that I think about it.

I saw a single bottle of the new version Old Taylor from BT. I actually thought I'd never see one in person. $79.99 + tax is just too much for me to spend for something that's ok, but priced high (as a novelty at this point). I can't wait to see their regular production OT.

You may be a while they got a bunch of barrels form JB to bottle it just like it was.

Passed up a Lot B in favor of a EWSB 1994.

Never had a 1994 before but it seems to be a favorite on SB.

Passed up some OWA's that I wasn't sure about: label said "Louisville", but they were not gold-threaded. UPC was 88076, which I think was sort of an in-between UPC before the arrival at BT. They were $25.

You should grab those Tom...not all OWA's were in GV bottles...anything Weller that says Lville on it is a buy IMO. :)

Bob, thanks for that. I may try to get back there. It was in a... Let's say, "remote" area of NYC, and I didn't make good notes of where I was (I was with my 4 year old son). But I think I can figure it out.

Pint of ER 101 (NOLA) for $25. Some of the 2005 OF Bithdays, one of the 2003s. Several OWA 7/107 (Frankfort) early in my hunting in hopes I would find some more of the Weller Cent I did buy.

Wild Turkey Tradition.
cool looking bottle and box, but read a not so great review. said the American Spirit was better and I have 2 bottles of that bunkered.

Last week when I was visiting Conyers, GA, I passed up numerous handles of OF, OWA, VOB, Bulleit bourbon and rye, and anything else over $30.

I only WISH I could find that kind of selection in CNY.

Actually I am of the opposite opinion.
And most folks I've talked to about it agree that Tradition is better than American Spirit.
So what was that Tradition going for?

Think I'm going to be passing on the recent shipment of JPS 18 a local store got in. I just haven't heard enough good talk about it, to pull the trigger. A side conversation with another member cemented this decison for me also. Thanks man!!

Unless anybody else can give some good counter points to this, its staying.

Beside, the fall BT release is just around the corner!

Yep! They had the best selection of everything that I've ever seen anywhere.

They also had a bottle of "The Fox" for $12 or $14 IIRC. I was pretty limited in what I could buy since I was flying back in a couple days.

AH Hirsch 16 gold foil top (they wanted $200!)
Old Charter Proprietor's Reserve (stumpy bottle)
Black Maple Hill Small Batch
Black Maple Hill 16yr
William Larue Weller
Thomas H Handy

I am really tempted to get the VR21...

Haha! I am just trying to get the full picture before I decide on what all to pick up. Still plan on visiting a handful of more stores. The WT12 sounds quite promising.

I am very jealous that I don't have anywhere near this selection at home

Just past this up too this weekend, the store had seven of them all lined up on the shelf. I about choked when I saw that many in one place.

These were price at $104 and change.

And not in a store or town even that i would think would have them. Especially just that many in one.

What did I pass up?? While running some errands getting the new house set up I stopped by a provider of adult beverages to get some margarita mix and naturally took a look at the bourbon selection. Since this move is about to drain the bank account I passed on....

6 GTS
6 WLW
5 ER17
4 THH
4 Saz

The folks here must not know good bourbon if it has been sitting on the shelf this long. Can't wait for the wife to start working :rolleyes: so I can lay in a little stock!
