    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    Today I passed up a few bottles of note, three bottles of Vintage 20 something (I don't remember) and a VWFRR. I may end up going back.

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    I passed up 10 bottles of Lot B that recently appeared on the shelf (actually I was only going to get one).

    The story has a happy ending though - I passed up the Lot B, because there were 3 bottles of Pappy 15 hidden behind them still wrapped from shipping. Pappy 15 was only $47.99 compared to the Lot B @ $42.99. I immediately grabbed all 3 and drove off with a smile on my face.

    I may still end up going back for the Lot B...

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    I actually paid for 2 half gallons of mid 80's Old Taylor only to notice on the walk tot the car it was 80 proof not the 86 I thought it was. They are back on the shelf from which they came. That's not to say the eighty proof juice is not good, just not what I was looking for. I did also pass on 4 half gallons of mid 80's Old Forester 86, also not my cup-o-T!

    I passed on a bunch of OF 86 today as well. Also passed up some OFBB 07, and some EWSB 94, 96, 98 & 99, and some brown label WT 80.

    I passed on a few Lot 'B's and a PVW15 . . . I really wanted the 15, but at $63 I wasn't feeling it . . . I have seen plenty of Lot 'B' around lately, so I didn't feel the pressure as much on that . . . I'll probably get some the next time I see some, though.

    I passed up a bottle of High West Rendezvous Rye. I went a little bourbon crazy with all the fall releases last year and my wife kind of gave me "the look" about slowing down.

    A lot of us know all about "the look" Rich. A pretty common occurrence around my household. What can I say? You're in good company. Joe

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    The problem with flying from the winterland of the Great Lakes to south Florida is that ones capacity to move bottles from point A to Point B is near zero.

    Saturday, I left a few things behind

    A smooth top WTKS from 3/04
    An Old Forester handle (old style label W/UPC) no other date hints on it
    2 cases of 09 Handy
    2 cases of 09 Saz 18
    Pampero Anniversario rum (25 bucks)

    I am sure there will be more today, too.

    I grossed over eight thousand dollars in one night. Time of your life, huh kid?
