    Jefferson Presidential Select 18 year. It was tempting, but I'm finding myself so enamored with the ORVW 10/107, I'm having a hard time drinking anything else. DAMN YOU BOTM!!!

    Which one? The first and the most recent are both great. If it was either of these you should go back and spend $80/

    Will

    The latest one Will, the wheat version, which sells for $69.95 at my local. As a general rule I prefer rye recipe Bourbons so the Parker didn't excite me that much. Over the years I have swallowed a lot of high tone whisky and my curiosity level no longer insists I buy whatever 'newest' expression is out there.

    You're passing up a great bourbon but it is a free country.

    A few days ago I saw two bottles of '09 Mariage on a shelf for $71.99. I bought one, but passed on buying both.

    Lately I have been going through the Four Roses lineup (Yellow Label, Small Batch, Single Barrel, and 2010 Small Batch LE). I have really enjoyed them all and find the Single Barrel and 2010 Small Batch LE to be excellent.

    I hope the '09 Mariage is as good as everyone here has said. And if it is, maybe I should go pick up that last bottle...

    Open the first bottle and give it a try but my first bottle and my second bottle didn't taste anything a like.
    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.

    Re: What Did You Pass Up Today? Fall 2010-Winter 2011

    Went into a store near my office that I've never bothered to visit. Small place with an OK bourbon selection. Nothing really caught my eye until I looked up on the top shelf where there were two bottles of Parker's Heritage Collection first edition. Looked at the proof - 129.6. I've had some before and preferred the first of the three releases. At $80, pass.
