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.
    HA! I passed up a Golden Ann for $209.99 and a 27 Year for $269.00! The clerk told a story about some schmoe on the phone trying to talk down the price of some $300 bottle of scotch to another clerk right when I walked in, so while browsing I asked him if he'd lower the price on the PHC's as a joke. At the end of the day, I know he's not the owner so I wasn't expecting anything, but I wish them the best in selling those bottles at those prices.

    I have never had the chance to be able to buy that, wish I was at least in your position to hopefully try it once. Argh.

    Passed up some Michter's 10 year eye at $130 and WTAS at $109 in CA.

    Wish I could find more of that Michter's and Vintage 21 year ryes, probably my favorites for their original ~$70 price.

    Did find a Vintage for $85, I knew it was a little over priced but I pulled the trigger anyway. When am I going to find it again?

    Same place passed up a Stagg for $199.

    My question as well for the Vintage Rye and VWFRR. Not looking for your source just wondering as I didn't think Ohio carried either per state limitations.

    No on either. Although, for the first time that I've ever seen, Ohio had a small allocation of PVW15 in the fall.

    Took my second pass in as many days but I may be kicking myself on this one. Passed on BMH 23 year old rye @ $128.99. Didn't have time to investigate if that was a reasonable price or to check on reviews of it. Also, I'm making a trip to Chicago the middle of this week and that means BINNY'S! Didn't want to spend my allotted budget too soon. Anybody have thoughts on that BMH 23 rye? I can stop back by there and pick it up on the way home from Chicago.

    Passed up everything I saw: a 2011 GTS for $100, Vintage 17 for $65, an 18 year old Willett for $140, Ritt 21 for $170, 2009 ER17 and THH without price tags, 2011 THH for $65.

    I think the Vintage was the best deal.

    I love this one. And it's impossible to find because it's not being released anymore. I've seen it go for a lot higher just because of it's rarity. If I saw it at that price, I'd pick up all they had.
