    I like Pappy, but wow!
    You should have told the owner where to stuff his winkle.

    That's one smart businessman, but a terrible friend.

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

    Passed up an '08 ER17 and a Lot B from '08. Also passed up a BMH 11 and 14yr - I think I'll go back for the BMH in the next week or so as I really liked the older BMH age dated juice.

    I would pass as well. Although... I'd bet that these will be bargain prices in the near future.

    It was in another state. I can somewhat understand jacking up the PVW 15 prices because it is fairly difficult to find. However, here in MD, the 20 year is readily available for $95-$110 so what's up with the markup?

    I went with the short story, here is the complete version for your amusement....


    We have the following in stock at the *********** (ed) location:

    12 Year ...$99.99
    15 Year ...$129.99
    20 Year ...$225.99


    There is a "qualifier", in order to buy a bottle of these allocated spirits, the company required us to purchase some of their other products. We pass on this same requirement so that we can continue to repurchase Pappy and have it available for our customers.

    You must purchase any two bottles of the following items for every bottle of Pappy:

    Buffalo Trace White dog Mash#1 375ml ...... $19.99
    Buffalo Trace Straight Bourbon Whiskey 750ml ...... $29.99
    Platinum 7x Vodka 1.75ml ...... $17.99
    Rain Vodka (regular and all flavors) 750ml ...... $19.99

    Maybe you can edit your post and put the name of the establishment in?

    This is a case where I'm sure others would be happy to know to steer clear of establishments with these sorts of absurd pricing and policies.

    Stopped today to pick up a bottle of EWSB 2000. Really wanted to try it because of all the good things I have read about it, but the $34.99 + tax seemed too high. What do you all think of that price ?

    I think you made a good decision, that's way too high. I wouldn't pay a cent over $25. Most places around me are selling it between $21-25.

    Passed on a bunch of bottles of FRSB for $35 in tax-free DE. I just don't like Four Roses.
