I should've said "yes" but instead I held out for Julio's.
Once again I was on a mission.....if you make a NH roadtrip save some for us New Englanders....:grin:
when i got the Sazerac 6, i saw the on-sale Ridgemonet Reserve...which i've had once and it was really super...$23.99.....$4 off...but i thought, man, i would rather get the Handy Saz...which i will NOT pass up on tomorrow!
Passed up WR Sweet Mash, dont think I regretted it............yet
Saw a bottle of (ri)^1 on the shelf but passed it up. I'd like to try it, but wasn't ready to pony up the $49.99 they were asking for it.
My local store has sold 9 bottles of the ri1 from the 12 that they took delivery on. :skep:
I don't HAVE to pass up ANYTHING. I answer only to myself, and I probably can afford at least one bottle of anything from the local potables purveyor that isn't kept behind the counter in a locked display case.
But I often pass up bourbons that I suspect are overpriced and/or over-hyped.
On the other hand, I HAVE learned (the hard way) not to be TOO much of a tightwad. No bourbon is a bargain if you have to hold your nose to swallow it.
But as long as I can find enough mid-shelf boubons that are perfectly enjoyable to sip neat, I'll probably pass up most of the top shelf stuff.
