    Question What did you pass up today? Spring - Summer 2010

    3 whiskies I passed up because 1) I spent too much already, and 2) I needed to check back here to see if they are worth it.

    Henry McKenna 10 year old BIB, $29. This just showed up here in 2 different stores. Now I see that as of a few years ago, some of you rated it the best product from Heaven Hill. This juice is from DSP-KY-31 (saying that on the label is part of the regs for Bonded) and barreled 3-31-99 (after the fire Chuck recently wrote about re: Evan Williams). Anyone tried the new stuff yet?

    OWA 7/107, $22 - saw 2 bottles that still had the "7 summers old" label. I know it's now NAS, but I thought I read here that the last of the 7 year old was not very good. Need to do more research.

    George Dickel Cascade Hollow, 3 years old, $19 - price seems kinda high for something that's a step below No.'s 8 & 12 (a different store has No. 12 for $20). Wasn't Dickel's distillery shut down for a few years? Is this just excess or sub-par stuff from when the distillery re-opened?
    Ooops, found most of the info on Chuck's blog: http://chuckcowdery.blogspot.com/200...th-george.html

    Thanks for all your wonderful information.

    -Matt
