    He does! And, the other guy looks like what I would suppose Fred Thompson looked like 50 years ago.

    I passed on several CEHT Tornado bottles, despite the fact it was fairly priced and I really like the whiskey. Makes sense...

    Re: What did you pass up today? Summer 2012

    Passed on Templeton Bourbon about 5 times the last 3 days. "Now if you like bourbon, this is really tasty". They must have just gotten this stuff in. Most of the time I just laughed, specifically when I was inquiring about different Willett ryes while standing in front of about 8-10 different willett bottlings. Of course, I should have known the templeton was the next selling point after being shown the willett pot still bottle.
    I guess I visited about 25 or 30 shops while traveling the last three days and templeton was pushed on me as a great bourbon more than jack daniel's 2 to 1, hmmmmmmm.

    I respectfully declined some WT Rye 101 for $23 + tax. I've been progressing through the RR Rye, and there probably isn't enough difference for another bottle. I did feel like I should have received some sort of scavenger hunt award for finding the 101 version though.

    EC 20yr. Going have a hard time convincing myself on one of these. With 18yr still being somewhat readily available and $50, it just doesn't make sense........yet.

    PVW20 for $250. The store owner educated me on the fact that only the 20 was called "Pappy Van Winkle", the rest were not.

    Some Jefferson 18 for $135. This one just didn't get priced very well in the transition.

    Ryes I believe. There were about 5 of each on the shelf, and they've been there for some time.
