    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    My local superstore, Binny's, has 1.75 Makers Mark on sale for $34.00. Great price, but there are so many others I want to try before I have MM again.

    3 OCPR slope shoulders & 2 VSOFs. I also do not like the looks of the (ri)1, however you type it, Jim Beam $45 rye. Eff that, I say....looks like designer vodka in that crap bottle and it's only $3 less than Handy...no matter how good it may be, it's not gonna be better than the Handy. Plus, I haven't read a positive review of it yet. It just came to ME last week and I will continue to pass it up.

    You guys in Chicago are sooo lucky, MM for $34. In MI, the State minimum is $52.99 for 1.75. I also saw Knob Creek for like $42 /1.75 @ Binny's or Sam's online. In my crappy state its $64.95 for 1.75.

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    Passed up an EWSB 1997 Vintage bottled June 2007...I know where there are two more bottled in January 2007....haven't sprung for them yet....I'm not really looking to start a collection of these and I haven't heard if any years are better than others. Also, even though they are all 1998s, EWSB is $5-7 cheaper in NH.

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    I found myself in a store today thinking seriously about springing for a bottle of Thomas Handy '08, but I chickened out because I didn't want to spend that much on something I've never tasted. So instead I splurged on something I know I like, the WLW'08.

    Gus,

    If you like a Rye whiskey, the Handy is fantastic. I've loved the Handy since they introduced it in '06.

    I second that.

    Plus, if you like Sazerac Rye, its a given you'll like Handy.
