My money is on one of the corporate offices in the Southwood development.
Passed on the Old Rip 23 year Decanter set. It was nice to see one
(even from outside the locked "special stuff" room.) Priced at $350.,
I told my wife I'd rather have five bottles of Pappy 15 at $70. per
but not sure she thought that was a deal...
I passed on a ORVW23 as well. Store owner wants $500 for it. Of course, I too want this set but not at that price.
Walked on by a bottle of (non-BHC) Weller Centennial at $50. I know it's a discontinued bottling that I used to enjoy, but I couldn't remember what I used to pay for it, and $50 seemed steep. There was also a (non-BHC) Old Charter Proprietor's Reserve for $45 that stayed behind, as well.
Passes on 2 Pappy 20s, Buffalo Trace Experimental, and Woodford Masters Collection Seasoned Oak. Purchased a Lot B because I've heard several good reviews on the forum.
$350 for a ORVW 23 set is a tough pass. I wish I lived up in NY. I may have to send my brother bourbon hunting out of Brooklyn.

I saw an Old Rip 23 for $335.00 plus 6% sales tax at The Thoroughbred Shop in Lexington KY back in May, might still be there.
