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

    Passed on a lot of great bottles, just getting a little too pricey.
    ORVW 10/90 @ $34.99, 2 bottles
    Lot B @ $54.99, 8 bottles
    PVW 15 @ $69.99, 6 bottles
    PVW 23 @ $229.99 1 bottle
    2010 BTAC all @ $79.99
    GTS, 6 bottles
    WLW, 5 bottles
    ER 17, 9 bottles
    Saz 18, 6 bottles
    Handy, 6 bottles
    Last year at this time, I paid $59.99 each for all of the 2009 BTAC, $69.99 for PVW 20, $48.99 for PVW 15 and $27.99 for ORVW 10/107 at this same store. I'm glad I bought all they had.

    Anyway, I sure all of these will all be gone in a week, well maybe not the ER 17 and the Handy.

    I picked up a bottle of VW Rye for about $50 but passed on the rest of the VW collection. PVW 15 was priced at $69.99, but I could have gotten 20% off of that, making it pretty reasonable. I have a bottle at home though.

    I did a double take, but then passed on 3 bottles of 2008 Larue. Very unusual for that to be sitting anywhere around the MSP area! Same place had some '09 Saz18 and '10 ER17.... And the USUAL entire row of Handy from the past year or more.

    A couple bottles of Bourbon Supreme with faux tax stamps. Really glad I skipped this after reading some of the reviews on here. Sounds like one of the worst ever.

    1.75 Old Taylor 86 proof from 1983, I think. May go back for this, depending on whether the consensus around here is that it's safe, etc. (see my other post in the "collectibles" forum).

    8yo Old Charter with the old label (the age statement stamped across the label)

    A couple more bottles of WT CGF 12yo that I just couldn't fit into the budget today--I will be going back for these unless somebody beats me to them.

    How could you pass up those CGF 12's? I think you should be doing your part to stimulate the economy or give me the change to stimulate it for you.

    What are credit cards for anyhow?

    It was tough but the bourbon collection has expanded rapidly the last couple months between the release of the BTAC and finally finding dusties. I've been lucky with the dusties, mostly due to improving my searching technique and heading further out in the state. Those cheesy turkeys will get a good home soon enough.

    After the last few days, they now have a home. I did, however, pass up several things:

    1) BHC Dickel and Harper -- same bottles I've mentioned before. If I thought I had a chance at an OC Prop. Reserve and Weller Cent, I'd pick them up just to get the whole BHC.
    2) Baker's in what I think is an old label. Mostly beige background, black letters.
    3) Virginia Gentlman 80 proof
    4) PVW 15yo at $59.99. I just have a hard time pulling the trigger on that one when I got two bottles last year for $50.
    5) PVW 20yo at $109. Not a bad price, I guess, but I can't stand paying that much for it when it was only $50 or at the beginning of this decade.
    6) WTRR101. This one was tough, but it was priced at $100! The guy offered me a deal on at $89, but that still seemed high. It was signed, so I guess he thought it was much more valuable that way (or I'm really off base in what I think a bottle of that should go for).

    1) I may have grabbed them just because.
    2) May have been worth it to compare to a new bottling
    3) I like the 90 proofer better, probably would have passed too.
    4) Ouch. I'd compare it to replacement value and 59 isn't a bad price, IMO.
    5) I don't drink enough of it to have to replace the ones I have put away by paying 109.
    6) 100 bucks is nuts, so is 89.

    OWA 7/107 with the gold veins.
    AA100.

    I passed them up because the owner told me they weren't for sale. Chatted with him some. Maybe next time I'm in, I can convince him to let me make him an offer.

    BTW, is the AA100 still distributed in the US? The shop owner said it was Japan only now, and I'm not sure I've ever actually seen any in a store.
