    What Did You Pass Up Today? Winter/Spring 2012

    I was in my local store today buying a bottle of Weller 12 before "Snowmegeddon 2012" hit. As I made my way to the register I spotted a small special order area. On the shelf was a bottle of High West Rocky Mountain 21 year old rye for the princely sum of $146.35. I didn't even pick it up.

    This is a long list today:

    Michters 10 - I have had interest but $89 scared me away when I didn't know much about it.
    Col EH Taylor SB - $89
    4x Handy 2011 - I might actually go back for this one. It was $75 so not crazy had a BS discussion with Store owner and distributor about Ritt so left without it.

    EWSB '98 & '99

    Not that this will be of much interest here but another store owner was working a Hirsch 20 Canadian Rye hard. I know nothing about Hirsch Canadian Rye but it look a little thin and light. It might be great but I couldn't justify buying and know squat about it.

    ORVW 10/90...as long as Weller 12 is available, why pay more?

    Michter's Single Barrel Bourbon 104 - $359 ?!? - I didn't even want to stare at the bottle too hard.

    Was in a store I have not visited before in MN, I picked up Saz 18 but passed on:

    ER17
    Handy ('10 and '11)
    All the expensive High West stuff
    Ritt 21,23,25
    Pappy 20
    Pappy 23
    Weller 12 (never seen before in MN, but it was $34.99)
    BMH 16
    FR LE SB 2011
    FR Mariage '10 and '11

    They had a lot of good stuff, but only because it was 15% more expensive than at most stores so it probably sits on the shelf a bit longer. However, it was nice to see that some of those bottles actually do exist.

    I think I must have got lucky on this HW21 rye, our local had it at $79, so I took two home.
    Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most

    Stood there a long time contemplating, but ultimately passed on a Pappy 20 and a Van Winkle 12-year Lot "b"

    Passed up a couple of PHC Cognac finished. Plus 10% of the Small Batch Collection-- although I would almost consider BH at under $30, if only to experiment with vatting it with OGD114.

    Ran across a OGD114 but didnt get it today. Is this still distributed in MN or not? Can always go back and get it as its pretty close to me too.
