I got $100 that you'll never pass it up again. Salud, my friend!
    I appreciate the offer, and will take you up on it one day, but unfortunately my current budget does not allow such splurges.

    Passed on a 4R 1B CS, but I may very well go back today and pick it up, if it's a recipe I don't have.

    Re: What did you pass up today? Summer 2012

    I passed on a few things today. A lot of Handy. I'm glad it's still out there because if I get in a bind I can always drink that. Also, I passed on more BTAC things, a 2011 Stagg, ER(didn't look for the date), PHC 27, rittenhouse 23, vintage 17 21 23, weller sr older bottlings w age statement, ORVW 10 90 & a lot of Willetts.

    Btw, I passed on a 2 yo willett rye that I was curious about. Has anyone had this and how does it compare to the 4yo or the 5yo. I love the the 4 yo and the 2 yo has a proof that is higher than the 5yo which is why I'm curious. Any idea?

    The EC18s barreled in '92 have been markedly better than any others I've had. Go back for it.

    I don't know about the bourbon, but I had a pour of the 25yo rye at a bar and it's special. It's clearly from the same stock as VWFRR, either Medley or CoK, and > 110pf if I recall correctly. It really is dynamite, but I wouldn't pull the trigger for the $350 I've seen it around here.

    Passed on a Weller's Original from 1913. A little out of my price range.

    Looks like we browse at the same store, never bought anything there myself, prices are always too high compared to local shopping.
    What makes them even think they could get the asking price?? Wow.......setting the bar high are they?

    Are you talking about the bottle on eBay?

    I'd never pay more than $200K for that, free shipping or not.

    Belle Meade bourbon has found its way to Atlanta. Had to look it up...

    http://www.greenbrierdistillery.com/..._products.html

    I'm guessing this is HH make. $34.99. Passed.
