    Re: What Did You Pass Up Today? Winter/Spring 2012

    I passed up a couple more things today...

    JRPS 17yr Batch 2 @71.99
    WTKS Dark Brown Top @39.99

    I thought about the JRPS's but I ended up getting the Michter's 10yr SB's instead!
    You can find me in chat most nights on days ending with the letter y!

    Been looking to land a JRPS 17. Love to know where you came across it as I think we are in the same area.

    The 2009 Mariage's seem to be like rabbits. Like many have similarly reported previously, I noticed (but, passed) several at a store I frequent.

    It was Total Wine in Reno. Everything else was reasonably priced, so I don't know what was going on with the Hirsch.

    Interesting, Total Wine usually has decent pricing. However, I am not sure how they price the rarer stuff like Pappy and BTAC. I am shocked to see anyone with that price on the Hirsch 16 gold foil and I bet it is still there a year from now - that said, one is born every minute.

    Passed on an EH Tornado @ $70. May go back at some point, or reallocate those funds elsewhere.

    That is a about right for the price. I have seen a little cheaper ($2-3) and a lot more expensive. IMHO it is worth it. The two bottles I have tasted have been superb. I have heard others were not as good. Some will disagree and say it is just hype. I very rarely buy bourbons at that price point, but I bought 6 of these.

    In the ATL area, they run about $75 +tax for the Pappy 15 which is par for the course in most places. Don't know about the BTAC prices .
