    I also passed up some JD, a wooden double box set consisting of:

    70th Anniversary Jack Daniel's Reopening (90 proof)
    75th Anniversary Prohibition repeal (90 proof)

    Looked cool but for $160 nowhere near worth the price IMO

    Weller 7yr for 12.99 750ml. 1.75 was 22.xx. It has dropped in price a few bucks. Fantastic for the price IMO.

    I got a call from a store today that is holding me a bottle of the BTEC 1993 rediscovered barrels. I got another call about the 1991 bottling.

    I"m not all that interested in these myself, but thought someone around here might be. Send me a PM if interested.

    I passed on a raft of overpriced Van Winkle today. Lot B for 70.00, Rye 90.00, 20yo 160.00, 10/90 46.00, 10/107 50.00...

    At those prices, they will be there a very long time.

    At those prices I would have passed them up too

    Yea, there is a place near me that still had 3 bottles of Lot B for $45 that I have been passing on since I already have 7 bottles of it. I pick it up still if I find it for $40 or less but I just don't really feel the need to add any more at $45 as that's the standard price around here. At $70 I would be passing all day even if I had 0 bottles.

    At $45 it would be in my hands. I think it is $55 in MI and hard to find at that.

    Yea, the thing is that I already have 7 and come this fall I will be able to get a case at $45 if I wanted so there is really no urgency to snap them up. The last bottle I got was $38.99 I think and while I wasn't looking to buy any more Lot B right now I wasn't going to pass on that price. That was actually bottle #8 now that I think about it.

    I saw a single bottle of the new version Old Taylor from BT. I actually thought I'd never see one in person. $79.99 + tax is just too much for me to spend for something that's ok, but priced high (as a novelty at this point). I can't wait to see their regular production OT.
