    What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    I thought I would start a thread in answer to "What did you purchase?"....so here it is, what did you see and want, but not buy today?

    Visiting my first really great liquor store for bourbon yesterday (Julio's in MA), I had to pass up quite a few and also to go smaller than I wanted to get more bottles.....

    I really wanted the PVW 15 but settled for the Lot B instead (even though the wife offed to get the Pappy's for Christmas, I was good -- maybe I can cash in later)
    I also got the FR SmB instead of Julio's barrel SB.
    There were so many, but others I wanted to try were Rockhill Farms, George Dickel Barrell Select TN Whiskey, Michter's Rye and the Black Maple bourbons....next time.

    Tell me what you had to pass up....

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    Great idea for a thread!

    Over the weekend, ended up passing up the following:
    Ritt BIB
    Dant BIB
    Brown BIB
    Jefferson's, both expressions
    Michter's American Whiskey (sampled some though, blech!)
    T.W. Samuels
    KY's Tavern & Vintage
    Noah's Creek.
    Some $45 gift box with a small bottle of OF with a glass and some stuff about Repeal. (Is this the OF Repeal Bourbon or is it just another cheezy gift pack?)
    The usual "I'm a cheap bastard" suspects, PVW's, BTAC, etc.

    I feel good about my choices.

    I also saw the OF repeal pack, but for $24...even at the low price, a 350ml is not really what I was shopping for....also had to pass up the Antique Collection for $47.99/bottle (I know. I'm crazy) Handy, Sazerac 18, WLarueW and Eagle Rare 17. C'est La Vie.

    It has been known to happen...are the bottles I listed the correct bottles?

    here's the NH Liquor store product search link...

    I just looked up WLarueW on that link, it was listed as 121.9 proof which was the 2005 release, but they could just be repeating the proof and sure as heck it is listed at $47.99.
    Here in MI if you could find it the minimum is $61.00.

    Glad to know I wasn't mistaken -- that keeps my perfect streak alive!



    There are a lot of these floating around the NH liquor store system...if I was a rich man, I would have picked up one of each, but I was on a mission for different stuff.

    But have you actually seen any of the bottles.
    I just looked up George T Stagg and they had the Spring 2005 bottle listed, but none available.
    Maybe they have not updated their info since '05 and don't carry the stuff at all anymore,.... but you did see them, right?

    I just looked on the NH liquor website and there are 18 bottles of WLW statewide!
