Lew Bryson knows I've been struggling with Ancient Age's packaging lately. I thought this time I'd gotten what I set out for, but now I think they've snookered me again.
I was looking for the 10 y.o. Ancient Ancient Age, which I've heard good reports on. What I *got* was 10 Star Ancient Ancient Age, no age mentioned. Seems like nice bourbon, esp. at the cost (story follows). But wottheheck is goin' on?
Story: went into one of our local liquor stores that has just moved, and added a bunch of bourbons and single malts. Found what I thought I was looking for and took it up to counter, where it ran up at $8+, half of the shelf price. Finally convinced the clerk he wasn't charging me enough, and shortly was wondering why I bothered.
