    Thanks, maybe I'll give the Handy a try before it sells out.

    Gus, do not miss out on the Handy! Today I passed up Buffalo Trace (which I can't get in my neck) and the Sazerac 18 in favor of two Handys.

    Well, I had a glass neat last night. It was very nice, the initial flavors were dominated by maple and the finish was very pleasantly and assertivley tobacco. KBD does a very fine job with this.

    I dont know how this could be a clone of either GTS or Bookers.

    I have tried the Noah's Mill as well as GTS and Booker's. They are not clones, although the high proof does lend them to some similarity in overall feel. I would say that Noah's Mill is somewhere between the GTS and Booker's in taste profile...if you like either of these, the Noah's Mill is well worth it...it is priced slightly below Booker's where I live.

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    I was in a store last night and happened to glance at the sop shelf. I happened across 5 bottles that I have been searching for for a while, and I know some of you have also. On the shelf set these 5 bottles, in this order(from left to right).

    1. I.W. Harper 15yr old
    2. Weller Centennial
    3. Old Charter Proprietor's Reserve 13 year old
    4. George Dickel Special Barrel Reserve
    5. Very Special Old Fitzgerald

    I almost climbed the shelf to get to them. I was hoping they were being sold by the bottle. No such luck. $400 for all of them. Since that was a little (a lot) out of my price range, I ran to the truck crying.......

    So I assume they all had the BHC logo on the necks?

    At 80 bucks each, they will sit there for a long time too.

    I believe they did (I did not really climb he shelf ). They were in a wooden display tray. Had a metal label under each bottle on the wood with the name. I did not pay much attention to the labeling on the neck, I just know you do not see these bottles anywhere around here and I got excited.

    I tried to talk the guy out of any of the bottles individually and he would not budge. Would not come off the price either......oh well.
