LOL yeah. I bought that one. My how things have changed in two short years.
I bought two 10 yrs for $65 ea. at the beginning of '14 and the store owner told me they just sold a 20 yr for $150 the day before. So yea....market prices. The 20 had been on the shelf for several months.
Old blowhard at $180. Just too much money and hype.
Passed up a Smooth Ambler Old Scout 10 ($39), and a Bowman Brothers ($29) and John J. Bowman($49)....
The prices seemed good but I don't know enough about them to pull the trigger (I was already getting some ER and ETL!)
Any word on the 3 I passed up? I might go back next week.
All three are good prices. I would probably jump on the SAOS 10 at $39. I have never had Bowman Small Batch. I paid a little over $50 for a bottle of JJB. There are other SB offerings I prefer at a much lower price.
Walked by a couple of pallets worth of CEHT Rye at ~$60 at Costco. Too rich for me....
Thought of my buddy Fishnbowljoe (aka The Weller whore) when I passed these up: WSR @ $29.99, OWA @ $39.99 and W12 for $49.99. No surprise that with those prices their shelves were fully stocked at 9pm on a Saturday night
