    Exactly. I stood there for the longest time trying to justify spending that much money and came up with the correct answer....I couldn't. At least not now.

    I did however purchase a consolation prize. Sierra Nevada Glissade Golden Bock.

    Took the long way home from the Doctor's office and passed on these:
    - PH Golden
    - WR Seasoned Oak
    - ORVW 10/107

    I almost got the 10/107 but I had some in the bunker and I am going to try and pick up those next month.

    I passed on a half a case of Binny's Weller 12's, one bottle of 09 WLW, and 2 Lot B's. WHAT WAS I THINKING? Joe

    Are you feeling OK Joe? Do I need to take you in for a psychiatric evaluation? I didn't think it was possible for you to NOT buy Binny's Weller 12. What happened?

    I wonder the same....if I was within 200 miles of just 1 Binny's Weller 12, I'd probably make the drive. For 1/2 case....well, no telling what I would do!

    As for passes, it hurt bad but yesterday to walk away from 2 of 4RSB 09 Mariage (hope to return on next payday) as well as some VG Fox and PVW15.

    Wow Joe, the 09 WLW is most surprising.

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    Although I did get a couple of 07 WLW's and a Weller Centennial yesterday while out hunting with Vosgar, I/we passed up some stuff too. Here's the list of things that we passed up.

    two bottles of Pappy 20
    3 bottles of Lot B
    one 98 WTKS pewter top
    one BHC IW Harper gold vein bottle
    Two older bottles of RHF, one had a BIB tag around the neck?
    Two different older bottles of Hancock's President's Reserve

    That's the list of the more memorable stuff. We also passed up some other decent current stuff too. I guess northern Illinois still holds a couple hidden gems here and there. Joe

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    Wasn't today, but the other day I had to pass on entire rows of Black Maple Hill 11, 14 and 16 year olds. I would love to have them because I've drank bottles of all three and was never disappointed, but for the prices they wanted they'll continue to sit, likely for a few more years!

    I've drank all 3 of those and yes your right they were good.
    I still have a 21yo unopened.
    I'd splurge and get that 16yo if I were you, it was excellent.
