    It's a dusty that hardly ever gets talked about on this board, which is probably part of why I passed for now.

    Anyone had some lately care to give some counsel?
    I have some early 80s 86 proof and it's nice bourbon. I'd love to find the BIB.

    After studying the shelves a bit, I asked if that was the correct price. The immediate reply is we price from the state book and that's the price. I asked would you mind verifying that? After verifying the correct price with the clerk, I made a purchase for $79.95.

    Stopped by a store in Michigan while here visiting in-laws. They had 6 bottles of PHC Golden Anniversary priced at $174.99. I asked if they would take they state minimum of $149.99 if I bought two. The lady behind the counter angrily replied, "We don't do state minimum pricing. We have to feed our children somehow!". I replied that I guess they would have to eat Ramen noodles tonight because I wasn't buying it at that price and I left them all sitting there.

    I passed up some PHC 2011, but I did snag the last two PHC 2010s they had on the shelf.

    Passed on a bunch of stuff at total wine today, Hirsch 22 rye, BMH 16 and a bunch of BTAC 11' still on the shelf (stagg & handy).

    Went hunting today, passed up on some SW Old Fitz 80 proofers, quite a few PHC 2011 (but found no 2010), the entire 2011 BAC, an overpriced Jefferson 17, and a VERY high-priced Weller 19.

    I passed up a Vintage 21 Rye. Couldn't pull the trigger on $70 right after Christmas.

    In one store I passed on 3 EWSB 1989 for $40 each, 2 old label WTRB of unknown vintage and price, and a Dickel BHC. After snagging 2 Rare Breeds earlier in the day and seeing his high prices, I just wrote down the location and walked away.

    That's a 40% discount off the price in DC. In my opinion it's as good as any aged rye, with a better price point.

    I bought 2 VWFRRs in Dec at $52 each, I would love to compare the VW and the V21, but the bourbon budget has been out of control for the last six months or so.
