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

    Passed up a bottle of Balcones Baby Blue Corn Whisky. Looked interesting but seemed like too much of a stretch.

    All the BTAC and most of the van winkle stuff has been picked through but this stuff still remains.

    Some wild turkey and jim beam decanters from the early 80's, they were all $150 & a Distillers Masterpiece 18 year.

    Passed on a PVW23 for $250. Not worth it imo.

    If they were at the store I'm thinking of, the owner has tacked on an additional $20 recently.

    My favorite store restocked the BTAC, except for the Saz 18, and I passed on everything because I only want what I can't have...

    I have Saz 18 and wish it were a GTS or WLW. I guess I want what I can't have too.

    Dusties of Wild Turkey American Spirit abound for $80. Always flirt with them but never pony up. Maybe somebody here can make the case?

    Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 Year for $60. Should I go back? They had a few bottles?

    I've passed up Lot B for $60. I'd rather overpay for ORVW 107 ($45) or PVW15 ($75), PVW20 ($110) or VWFRR ($75).

    Others here will protest wildly, but Lot B is my least favorite in an otherwise exceptional range. Check out these tasting notes from LAWS--and remember, Adam and Sku both rate the 15, 20, and rye very highly.: http://www.lawhiskeysociety.com/whis...serve-12-Lot-B

    I'd say try it at a bar tonight; a glass should be somewhere between $10-15. If you like it, go for it. If not, you've saved $45+.
