    Wow, and I thought the PVW20's I passed on yesterday for $160 & $230 at two stores were the pinnacle of unethical price-gouging. Time to adjust the absurdity scale again. At this point, I'm just waiting to see it for $400 so I can snap a pic and make it my profile icon.

    Passed on a 1.75L dusty of Louisville Old Charter 10 (86 proof) for $40 too.

    Passed up an IW Harper dusty, a bunch of 1983 OF Primes (bought one), an old Glenmorangie 10 year, a dusty Old Crow... Possibly others that I'll check out next time I go.

    Probably should have picked up the Harper...

    Passed on a THH and WLW for $129 and a GTS for $139. Also passed on a Lot B for $79, crazy prices and I hope they sit for a while at these prices!

    Didn't get the price or proof. I'm assuming it's about $30 (it's a 1.75 L), considering the prices of everything else in the store. It was way up on a shelf behind bulletproof plastic, and the clerk was already a bit tired of me when I saw it. Next time, though...

    A handful of PVW23 at $349. Too rich for my blood.

    I passed up quite a bit today as I'm just not interest in buying like I used to be! I left behind bottles of FR 4 Grain, Sonoma Cutter, 2004, 05 OFBB, Handy 2008, Pappy 20, 23, Lot B, ORVW 10/90 , 10/107, OWA 7/107 2005, Louisville OC 8 and 10yr bottles, JDSS, ND OGD 86 1983, a couple others that are slipping my mind. Moral of the story as there is still plenty of good bourbon sitting on shelves around the country!
