    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    Keep forgetting to post this, while on the big wine trip to the Finger Lakes, I passed up a few things, the most notable of which was an almost complete (-1 pawn) Old Crow Chess Set at an antique shop. They were asking $400 for it. Some of them were unopened and many of them still had whiskey in them.

    The owners claimed they would dump them before selling them but they were most likely teasing me. They also had a lot of Ezra Brooks memorabilia which I also passed up.

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    Yesterday I passed on an old half-bottle (didn't check to see if units were in Englich or metric) with a faux tax strip of Four Roses, not the bourbon but the blended whiskey.

    I'm usually with my wife, when I swallow my brain like that in a liquor store. So, I suspect Mrs C. was with you.

    I don't think I passed up much. I came home with 23 bottles of whiskey.
    My wife is getting a bit worried. I told her it wasn't all for me.

    I passed up a bottle of pappy 20 today as well. it was priced at 79.99+tax in a small "mom and pop" joint. the lady said it had been there for several years... judging by the dust, I'd have to agree.

    I'm thinking about going back for it, but 80 bucks is a lot to spend on a bottle of whiskey...
