I'm just messin' w/ you. I really enjoyed it.
Passed up two different versions of BT experimental collection in Indy. I was in a rush, so I didn't really get to see which releases they were. My wife was there, so I couldn't spend $80 in front of her. I might have to call tomorrow and get more details.
It was $35, not $30! I shoulda picked up one or two more, I know, but I was A) relatively new to the game and didn't know what I was passing up and 2) fairly low on funds at the moment.
As for the Charter, that was around the time it came out I think. It was the first and last bottle I ever bought. Let's hang out again and I'll bring over more crap bourbon!
I had to pass up two handles of Old Taylor 6yr tax stamped juice priced at $12.50 each. Didn't want to seem too interested so didn't check the date on the bottom but neither bottle had a bar code. There was just no way I could carry them on my motorcycle as I already had 5 other dusties in addition to my luggage loaded. The prospect of a 10 hr ride on a bad handling bike with bottles trying to fall off wasn't too appealing.
Passed on a vwfrr for £55 and a load of BTAC at £95+ just didn't have the budget to snap them all up, I'm sure I'll head back soon enough and get the vwfrr at least.
The water was not fit to drink. To make it palatable, we had to add whiskey. By diligent effort, I learned to like it.
