    $100 a bottle for VWFRR? Holy smokes! I found three bottles in MD about a week ago for $49.50 each. Yes, I bought them.

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    Didn't buy today but am thinking of grabbing it next week...EWSB 1999, hand selected barrel by Steve's Wine, Beer, and Liquor in Madison. The tasting notes spoke of citrus and caramel. On sale for $21.99...it's tempting. I didn't pass on the Peychaud's bitters, though...been looking for a bottle.

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    While in NorCal for a wedding and in search of OF Birthday Bourbon I came across some WTRR 101. It was very reasonably priced at $25.99, but I just don't like it. If anyone in the Sacramento area (or anywhere else in NorCal desparate enough for the drive) is interested PM me and I'll tell the location. There was at least 6 bottles.

    Alas I never did find any OFBB, so It looks like I am ordering some from Binny's. That's bad, orders from Binny's are never small nor cheap!

    Oh, also passed up a couple bottles of Four Roses Mariage at $89.99 completely uninterested! Was very disappointed to see the Small Batch was up to $39.99 a bottle!! I am sorry FR, but at that price I'm much a less of a fan.

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    Over the past three weeks or so, I passed on a couple of EWSB 92, EWSB 94, and an old BT Benchmark.

    First was the 94 I just wasn't interested at the time, the Benchmark had a fair amount of evaporation, and the 92 was about 15% above state minimum so I passed.

    Did I make any mistakes?

    Thanks.

    Will

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    I bought a case in Bardstown and it worked out to $23/ea for buying 6.

    Now I realize thats a good deal. 40 bucks though is just a bit too steep.

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    I have a bottle of OFBB I have been watching for a while at my local store. I already have an open one and one in my bunker so every time I go I pick up something new instead and leave that one for next week. Its hard to pull the trigger on something you already have when there are so many you don't.

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    I passed up on some 2007 release VWFRR. I picked up a few bottles and when I returned a few days later, there were six more in it's place. It was $40 but I'm not sure how many to bunker at this point.
