    Re: What did you pass up today? Summer 2012

    Went to the flea market in Canton, TX today, passed up quite a few empty decanters, and one empty ER101 bottle in a wooden box. It was nice to see some of the styles and things, but I don't want empty bottles hanging around the house like that....

    Actually saw an AH Hirsch 16 yr on the shelf today. Too bad it was $650.
    Same store also had a $185 bottle of Stagg sitting in the front window baking in direct sunlight all day.

    I spotted the new Elijah Craig 20 year on the shelf for $120 today...next to a throng of the 18 year for $40.

    Aside from two extra years in the barrel, you'd think for the extra $80 we'd at least get a fancy new bottle. Not that I care about such things.

    And when you consider that the 18yo might have older whiskey in it anyway, is the extra $80 really worth it?

    Shoot...I buy all my ORVW 10yrs in the $30-$40 range, or I don't buy them. We have plenty of 10/107 for around $38 back where I live. ORVW 10/107 is good stuff, but I find ~$20 OWA 107 to be essentially equivalent.

    Yeah, the 107 seems to be the one I will find fairly easily, and for under 40.
