    $85 is about average. If rye is not your favorite though, why buy such an expensive bottle? I say pass - the HW 16 has a very strong rye flavor due to the mash bill, meaning your money is probably better spent elsewhere.

    Or get a bottle of the Willett 5yo rye at 110 proof and single barrel for under $40, it's a great pour.

    Passed on Woodford Reserve Master Collection Rye Set. It was "on sale" for $120 which just seemed ridiculous to me.

    Saw a beautiful thing over the weekend:

    BMH18 Rye
    Vintage 17
    Vintage 21 Rye
    Vintage 23 Rye
    Several Willett up to 18 or so

    Then I saw the pricetags and put them all back. About 50-100% too high.

    That is way too high especially "on sale".

    Stopping at a local store on the way home, they had Bookers on sale for $46.99. I cradled it for a few moments before remembering that I'd already spent my "whiskey budget" for the month

    Passed up on a 2008 Birthday Bourbon. Never had it, but looking at some reviews it looks like maybe I should go back and grab a bottle. Thoughts?

    EC18. The one I have now (with but one pour left in it), I picked up on sale for under $40 a few years ago, and it's been pretty good, but the only bottle I've seen since the news of it going away has been repriced up to $70, which feels a little overpriced.

    4R Mariage 2009, also at $70, though this appears to be an average price for the bottle since its release. I haven't tried it yet, but the cost is feeling high compared to my bourbon budget.
