    Old Grand-Dad 114, Yes or No?

    Came across a bottle of this but couldn't pull the trigger. Thought I would throw it out here, since I am new. It is worth $40 or should I move along?

    It's been a little while since I bought a bottle, but it seems like it should be under $30...but if prices are inflated where you live that may just be the going price. Good stuff.

    Runs under 25 in the DC area... good juice at that price point

    Not really in my opinion, but I do think it is worth more than the $18.99 we pay in St. Paul for it. That should help you put it into perspective.

    40 Bucks is a bit much IMO.

    It's a pity that the OGD114 is so pricey where you live. I really enjoy it, but then I only pay $25 (or less when on sale) for it. I'd skip it at $40 because there are simply too many other quality products at that price point that I prefer. Perhaps you should keep looking to see if you can beat that price. If you find it at $30, I'd buy it and check it out.

    I always pick up a couple of bottles of OGD 114 when I'm in Va. I've never paid more than $24.95 for it.

    BourbonNOOG you should up date your profile to say where you are from to some degree narrow it down to a state at the least.

    I agree with the others that it is a great 20 dollar bottle, but not a great at 40.00

    Thanks to all the quick responses. It looked quite tasty but at that price point it sounds like it's a little steep (overall consensus). Nice work on deciphering my username, callmeox. I appreciate all the help. I will probably hold off and grab this elsewhere while traveling at a cheaper price. I would like to taste it but not at a $15 premium.
