    Re: What did you pass up today? Summer 2012

    Vintage 23 Rye $120
    Willett 21 Bourbon $170
    Rittenhouse 21 and 23 $199

    First time seeing any of these on a shelf. Never tried any of them, so I wasn't willing to shell out to figure out if they were worth it. Thoughts?

    I would pass, those prices are just too high. I do not care for the Vintage 23 or Rittenhouse 23, too much wood compared to the younger versions. I have been hunting the Ritt 21, but would not pay $200 for it - that is just too much.

    Was the Willett 21 cask strength? K&L just released a Willett 21 cask strength wheater that is supposedly from SW. I know a few here have purchased but I haven't seen any thoughts on the juice itself yet.

    I saw three bottles of EC 18 today priced at $48. My heart told me to buy one more as I had purchased an EC 18 at another store recently for $46. But my head told me not to buy it. I still haven't tried the EC18 that I already own and I didn't want to have two bottles of something I may not like.

    you are not alone in thinking this. I passed a couple of these over the weekend and every time I see one, I think I should pick it up. I happen to like it quite a bit, and the with the knowledge that it will be gone for awhile, makes it harder to pass each time. And it won't e any cheaper in the future.

    Maybe later in the summer lull I'll pick a couple up. Been a couple of other priority purchases lately.

    Well, you can compare them with the three I just saw at $60 and left on the shelf. They are the only EC18 bottles I've seen at my usual bourbon haunts recently, but I have lots of other expenses (and expensive bottles I want) right now.
