I know you jest...reading various postings it appears everyone here has a good sense of humor. I agree, some imports are tooo pricey...that is what is great about Whisky Fest...I attended last spring in Chicago and could taste Bourbons, Scotch, Irish...even beer. I quickly confirmed what I like and do not like...fortunately, my choices don't run that expensive...I just did not see the significant difference from 12 to 18 to 23 yrs...of course I noted some...but not enough to pay $75-100 bottle. As I posted in tasting...my brother thinks Walker's Delux is fantastic...it does not cost that much and he likes it...it is ok...makes a good whiskey sour...but I prefer to spend my $ on quality over quantity...because I am not an everyday drinker. Tonight, just pulled my first bourbon out...several years old...W.L. Weller Special Reserve..see tasting notes.
