Damn, it's been that long? I guess that's what a lousy economy will do to you. I've been concentrating on value pours in these recent years and occasionally bringing out bunkered bottles, for obvious reasons. But, even that isn't a panacea.

(A Rip Van Winkle reference is appropriate here for more than one reason.)

WTF happened to Rittenhouse BIB?! What used to be about $12 or so is now almost twice that! I guess that's what happens when word gets out. At today's price, it's worth holding out for Baby Saz - except I haven't seen any on the shelf, either.

I've seen a few BTAC's floating around, but while $79 isn't horrible, it's just not something to buy anymore. I'll just have to take it easy on the bunkered stock.

Don't even get me started on what happened to Scotch prices. My "value" Scotches have either skyrocketed (Ardbeg 10) or disappeared entirely (Aberlour 10).

Fortunately, there's VOB BIB to be found - shhh, don't tell anyone!
