    Re: What did you pass up today? Summer 2012

    Saw a bottle of EC 18 year yesterday for $43. I have never had it, but saw on here that it is discontinued, so I might go grab it next payday. It's in a little hole in the wall store that caters mostly to the $10 and under crowd....pretty sure it will be there next week.....

    Passed on a WT 81 Rye. Had it been a gift set packaged with toothpaste and Pepto Bismol, I might have pulled the trigger.

    I had to pass on a bunch of intriguing Japan-only releases a few weeks back since my wife and I couldn't tote a bunch of bottles around Thailand/Cambodia/Indonesia. The only bottles not available in the US that I found in the Tokyo airport tonight (as I pass back through) were WT 8 & 12 and Harper 15. The latter was left on the shelf.

    High West 16 yr. rye. Have heard good things but at 99 a bottle, I'll stick to the Vintage 21 yr. rye.

    Both are no longer, I'd be stocking up on the V21 rye if I could find it.

    That's a decent price. Give it a whirl. EC18 was my "gateway" into the world of bourbonmania, but then I enjoy heavily aged whiskey more than most.

    Mike, it might be worth grabbing a bottle, especially since it is no longer being released. I too love Vintage 21, but I also love the High West 16. It is very unique and extremley tasty stuff - a real gem. I would put it in my top 10 favorite American whiskeys of the last decade.
