    Re: What did you pass up today? Summer 2012

    Passed up CEHT Tornado and PHC Cognac finished today.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    The Heaven Hill gift shop prices are quite inflated compared to retail and other distilleries. Not sure why. I passed on the PHC wheater at that same price there. I knew it was already gone everywhere else too. In spite of adoring the one and only I bought, just couldn't pay $129 for something I paid $65 for.

    They're still there, one each of VW Lot B at $99.99 and 107 at $79.99, at a store in the suburbs here. If you want to pay those stupid prices, put on your hunting shoes...I won't do them the favor of telling who it is.

    I forgot to add, Templeton has hit the Twin Cities market. At over $40, of course. Didn't give it a second thought.

    I passed on everything in the store today, but I did request they get some PHC 2012 when it becomes available.

    Passed on PHC from last year the cognac finished. Waiting for them to get the new one so I can buy some more.

    Best regards, Tony

    I constantly pass on this. I have seen nothing but good reviews but I haven't pulled the trigger yet. I have a feeling that, in Utah at least, this will be around long after the 2012 has come and gone.

    Passed on the 2012 PHC and a ton of Ritt Bib again. I also came across a Old Scout Rye. I didn't know they had a Rye. It was a 7 yo. I assume this is LDI High Rye mashbill. Anyone have this one yet.

    Passed up an EC20 for $115. Nearly pulled the trigger, but that is more than double the price of the EC18, which was often too woody anyway. I'll keep an eye out for somewhere to buy this by the glass before purchasing.

    H&F Bottle shop has/had it so you might find a bottle at the Holeman & Finch Public House if you find yourself down that way. If I get by there in the near future I will try to remember to inquire.
