    Depends on the price. I'm not sure what kind of bourbon you like, but I liked the '08 morethan the '11, and I liked the '10 more than any others I've had (except for a sample of the even better '02 that I was lucky to have at the Sampler). I'd probably pull the trigger on the '08 at around the $30 mark.

    If I lived anywhere near you I would ask you where that store was and run and buy it immediately. If you'd like to do a trade for it, PM me with interest!

    Thanks. Was $32 and change, so if it's still there this weekend I'll probably go ahead and grab it.

    I've been passing on far more bourbon than I've been purchasing. Recently, I've been tempted by:

    CEHT Tornado - $69.99
    CEHT Uncut/Unfiltered - $69.99
    FRLESmB '11 - $79.99
    FRLE1B '12 - $79.99
    FR OBSQ 1B - $44.99 (this one hurt)
    AAA 10yo - $16.99 (don't see this around much)

    None of this stuff is going anywhere anytime soon, nor is any of it new to me (other than the newest CEHT). The Tornado is most out of my way, but everything else should be able to wait until I'm a bit more flush. I do intend to get on the FR1B ASAP.

    Vintage 17 @ $66, whole shelf full. From what i read on here it's going away, just a large investment relative to the other choices they had on hand.

    Not sure if anyone is anyone is collecting the BT Experimental Stuff, or if the Zinfandel finished stuff is that hard to find, but I noticed this pop up on KLWines.com. I'm passing, cause the "finishing" of bourbon doesn't really do it for me, and as interesting as a lot of these sound, I don't feel like experimenting with my own money. None the less, if anyone is looking for this bottle for their collection, you can check out K&L Wines.

    Passed on a bunch of bottles of WTR 101. Price was OK, but I've got a couple that should tide me over until it comes back to the market.
    Never ask a man if he is from Virginia. If he is, he'll tell you. If he isn't, you don't want to embarass him.
