    I was pretty close to pouncing on a few, but decided to spend the money getting my hair braided instead. Mistake? Oh well. Might go back some time next year and see if they're still there. It's a fairly small city, so I think my odds are good.

    Passed up a Cognac PHC for $89. Georgia is weird, some whiskies cheap - I bought two WSR7s for $9.99, but most of the higher end whiskies are high priced.

    I would have passed as well. The cognac PHC is my least favorite in the series to date.

    Lot B: $85
    Pappy 20 $130
    Pappy 23 $250

    I love Lot B, but not at $85. Just retailers trying to make a quick buck over suggested retail.

    The Lot B is a tad high, but the prices on PVW 20 and 23 are what I've been seeing everywhere the last couple months, even at chain stores that have consistent markups.

    Passed up 4 different bottles of some old looking Beam 'duck' series. Not sure how old they were, but they were stated to be a set of three. I took the bottles out of the boxes and the juice looked 1/4 evaporated, with one bottle looking quite nasty. Each were $30. Not sure what era these were from, but appeared to be mid eighties. Any additional info would be great.

    Also passed on a Hancock's Single barrel. It came in its own oval wooden, or more like bamboo, box. I think it was $40?

    Should I go back for these guys?

    $89 is a little steep for V21 rye, but it's so Damn good I'd probably buy it. $59 for tornado is $10 under what I've seen, I'd probably buy one of those as well.

    Nice selection and prices where you are for sure. I'd have probably come home with 1 each of the Vintage ones.
