    Re: What did you pass up today? Spring 2010

    People who say that they prefer the 122.6 over the 129 aren't saying that the 129 isn't up to snuff. I think most of them are saying that they find the 122.6 slightly more drinkable because it is smoother and "easier." It's like saying the 2007 WLW is better than the 2008. You're going to get a lot of disagreement, and no one is wrong- 07 is awesome for easy of consumption and 08 is awesome for the (perhaps) slightly more complex flavors but neither one is bad.
    If you add water to bring the proof to about 105 to all three I expect they would be very similar.

    Anyone have firsthand experience?

    Yes Indeed! I've gone through 2.5 of them now, and I've got another one in the bunker. I think there's still 3 or 4 of them on the shelf at the store. You're making me want to grab them ASAP. One more peep and I will...I swear.

    i passed on Old Forester today. its something ive been wanting to try but have never seen around here. but it was the 86 proof and only available in 1.75 L, and i tend to distrust bourbon that is sold in that quantity. does anyone know if that's a decent pour, or should i hold out and try to find the Signature label?

    I'm not B-F fan but yes get the Signature, I think it's their best.

    Had to pass on some Baby Saz rye as it was priced at the same low price as the Handy rye on the shelf next to it, 69.99. Also saw some NAS Old Weller Antique for 24.99 and passed on it too. Also saw Van Winkle Lot B for 47.99 too!

    i was at the beach and there was a fancy liquor/wine store that had a bunch of drinks that i cannot find round these parts. unfortunately, i never expected to find these, hence, they werent in my bourbon budget for the weekend. so i had to pass on the PVW 15 year and the PVW thats a step below that one. also had to pass on Rock Hill Farms. i may have splurged on one of them, but my wife was with me and that just wouldnt have gone over well. so i had to settle for the Sazerac Rye, which tasted like cherry exlixir to me.

    Gave up on an ebay auction of 1975-era Seagram's Benchmark. Was willing to go $55 which is already too high but when the bids went higher, I walked away without.

    Actually a little relieved, since from what I've read, the stuff is nice but nothing to do backflips over. The $ will be put to better use on other bottles down the line.

    the other day i saw a JB white label with firefighters on it. maybe from a specific fire department? do they have a label with some proceeds going to a fire dept or something?
