    Your secret is safe with me . . . that's a great price, though!

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    It was about a year ago now when I made that purchase. I guess since then its jumped $20 a bottle.

    On a side note, I got my 18 bottles of Hirsch 16 gold foil for all under 50 a pop, but that was 3 or so years ago.

    Those are the only 2 bourbons I have heavily bunkered and itll probably stay that way.

    That's still a lot of jack but they have jumped $25 a bottle in the long run it was a good buy. I just loved my PVWFR 20 It's great stuff it took a lot of will power not to drink it all in one night.

    I agree it was a LOT to spend at once, but it is my favorite bourbon to date and I want to be able to enjoy it "forever".

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    On the way back from the sampler I passed on a VWFRR @ $55 before tax. Guess it was better than the $72 bottle I saw in Bardstown but I just wasnt up for spending $59 for it after tax.

    It was kindof hard to walk away.

    You should have bought it it's going every where else at $100 bottle. That was half off I would have bought 2.

    There was only 1 left.

    $100 is just silly.

    I had spent a ton in the last two weeks on bottles for the bunker so the premium prices have been wearing on me. I got a OGD 114 & VOB BIB instead for $36 out the door.

    Hell I could have gotten 2 OGD 114 & 1 VOB BIB for the same price as 1 VWFRR from that store.

    I passed up Four Roses small batch today for $24.99 (which I highly prefer to the single barrel) for the Old Forester "Repeal" gift set. I can live with that...this time.

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    Like every other Monday when I deliver their non-alcohol O'Doul's to them, I passed on a lot of lovely ladies.
    The establishment is Deja Vu, in MI you can't serve alcohol at a place that features totally nude dancing.
