I was offered a bottle of 28 year old Hirsch Selection Bourbon for $300. It had just been returned (I did not know liquor stores take returns...). The clerk tried to sell it based on the fact that Pappy 23 goes for $250, so for only $50 more I was getting another 5 years in wood. I know I tasted some very aged Hirsch Selection bourbon a few years ago that was some of the blandest, most overly-wooded whiskey I've ever had; not sure if it was from this bottling, but I told the clerk that if he was going to drink it he should watch out for splinters on his tongue.
