    Copper Fox 12-month Rye @ $43

    I like the idea that they are malting/smoking their own barley, and have a 2/3 rye, 1/3 malted barley mash bill. I think the high malted barley mash bill would give it more weight in the mid-palate - just couldn't get past the 12-months @ $43 without tasting it first.

    I passed up a Vintage 21 Bourbon, yes bourbon not rye. Now, I love the 21 rye but I haven't seen a bottling of this. Any thoughts? The bottle was $139.

    If memory is correct they wanted $75 for it (and the proof I think was in the low 120s).

    Passed on 3 bottles of Jefferson's Ocean. At $499.99 each, it makes it easy to no.

    Wow, and I thought $181.00 was too much when I saw it

    If any of the Atlanta metro folks have passed up an EC 18yr in the past few days, could you shoot me a PM about where a bottle may be had?

    My buddy's girlfriend called my finance and wanted to get him a bottle since he likes it and its their 18 month anniversary. I passed one up earlier this week, but it was a ways out of town and at this point, who knows if it is still there.

    At 250% of what is, in my opinion, an already bloated retail price, it would certainly make it an easy pass. It would make it even easier to decide never to do business with a store that tries to screw people on price like that.

    Passed up 6 WT 101 Ryes at 25 a piece. For 2 of the WT, I can typically grab a Rittenhouse and a Willet 5 year. That being said, if any Atlanta guys need a few 101s for the bunker, shoot me a PM, I'll let ya know where theyre at.
