THH @$109, JPS18 @ $129, EH taylor single Barrel ( have not heard much good about the entire EH line), BT single oak and BT experimental. I also saw some Hirsch 20 yr. American whiskey for $80 or $90 but again I have heard it just is not that good.
Passed through the store with the grossly overpriced Handy again today. So odd since they have a number of bottles which are priced at or below other local stores.
It is also very sad. There were 11 bottles on the shelf from at least 2 different years! No telling how many more might be tucked away elsewhere. A shame to see such fine whiskey not being enjoyed but I certainly won't pay that for 6yo CS whiskey that realistically is already overpriced at retail cost.
Checked on the 25yo Hirsch Rye I saw last week but apparently all they have is the 25yo (At least as far as they seem to know. Doesn't seem to be the most organized of operations) so I passed on it. Was hoping to find a 21 or 22.
Also saw these Hirsch 20yo American whiskeys finished in used barrels (not A.H. Hirsch of course). Didn't know much about them so passed for now at $80. I seem to recall it was not particularly well thought of and certainly not at that price. Also saw the Michter's 10yo mystery rye which there have been a few good reports about on here recently but didn't have much interest at $72 even though that seems to be lower than some internet prices I have seen. Do we know where the heck this comes from??? It is the one bottle I am wondering if I should have picked up.

Wow - that is sad. I love THH, but at triple the price - that's crazy. Must just like saying they have it on the shelves.
I passed up on the Hirsch 25 year for $220. If anyone is around Augusta, GA and is interested, PM me. I couldn't bite on it since I don't know much about it. The Anchor Distilling website doesn't even have it listed.
Also you might PM Chainwhip if he doesn't chime in here. He's pretty up on the older ryes.
