    passed up a Hirsh and a 2011 4RLE; prices were just out of my budget at the moment.

    Left 2 Handy Ryes on the shelf in favor of a 4 Roses 2009 Mariage. $69 a bottle. They've actually been there for awhile, so I'm not too broken up about it.

    Re: What did you pass up today? Summer 2012

    I picked up a few bottles today but more importantly I passed on one.
    Elijah Craig 20yo, I looked at it a few times while in the store and the person working there said that there are only 35 bottles of it in MI.
    I knew it existed but I don't recall anyone commenting on the taste.
    It was priced at $199.99 plus 6% sales tax.
    When I got home I looked up the state minimum shelf price, it's $129.97 plus 6%.
    Glad I passed on it.
    If anyone out there has any reviews let me know, I might go back and try to get it at the minimum.

    (a later edit add-on)
    I just stumbled across this thread. I'm getting curious, I'd like to try it.

    I would have done the exact same thing. I like THH, but 09 Mariage is fantastic.

    Passed on VR23 for $68- I have one VB17 (wheater), VR21 & VR23 - should I have a back-up of this? High-end juice doesn't appear in my time zone very often and I have yet to try any of these (still developing my palate on bottom/mid shelf).

    If you like the juice, that's a good price.

    Well, I won't manage a pour for many moons - these are 'special event' bottles on both the buy and consumption sides. I haven't even busted my rye cherry (got a bottle of OO waitin' in the wings, tho).

    I passed up quite a bit last night, phc wheated, the full btac line, and a few more I can't remember this morning. I just can't pull the trigger, but the sazerac 18 was the hardest to pass up.

    I may have to change my mind.

    Passed up ER17 and a Yamazaki 18 yr (yeah I know it's not bourbon). The ER17 was $87 and the scotch was $145. That scotch is getting crazy.
