    Re: What did you pass up today? Summer 2012

    Passed on an EC18 (priced fairly at $50, but saving my next $50 for something else), as well as a WT Tradition @ $110.

    Re: What did you pass up today? Summer 2012

    Moved my oldest stepdaughter to college today and stopped at a couple of liquor stores on the way home. The only thing I did see of interest was Baby Saz now that might not seem like a big deal but this was in Iowa and 60 miles from home. I didn't think you could get Sazerac Jr in Iowa. Normally I have to go to Omaha to get it and then it's hit and miss. I passed on it because my last bottle was so grassy/hay that I could hardly drink it. It had to let it breathe for 6 months before it was good. Just don't have the room for that.

    Been passing up the Four Roses Single Barrel 2012 LE, one at $86 and another place at $120. Glad I have one from TPS. Not sure if Socal is getting the shaft from distributors on this or it's just some retailers being opportunistic. The place with it for $86 isn't known for markups.

    Found a pair of WT Kentucky Spirit Pewter Tops for $52 each that I left on the shelf for no good reason other than I had dropped a fair amount of cash at another liquor store earlier in the evening. I think I'll head back on payday and snag 'em both, being a big Wild Turkey fan. Been a while since I've bought any KS, as I usually grab the Rare Breed or WT101 when I'm in the mood for some Turkey.

    Despite the raves that continue to roll in for baby Saz, I have had the same experience with my current bottle. When I first opened it, it had a sappy, gummy profile that was thick with woody grass. It has opened up really nicely, but it has definitely taken months to get as pleasant as it's now drinking.

    Left some Gold, green, and straight from the Barrel Blantons on the shelf. All from 2003-2005.

    Left an EWSB 23 for 150 euros.

    Finally, some various OGD bottlings from 2000.

    All in Barcelona.
