    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?
    Absolutely -- they were in this wooden crate display and my wife said, "cute are you going to get one of these?"
    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....

    People really pass up bourbon that they want? Seems to me that you didn't really want it all that much...

    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.

    I passed this same one up at Julio's this weekend -- don't know anything about it.

    My local store has sold 9 bottles of the ri1 from the 12 that they took delivery on.

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    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.
