    Re: What did you pass up today? Autumn '12

    FRSmBLE @ $71
    FR1BLE 2012 @ $71
    PHC 2012 @ $85
    High West 16yr Rye @ $99/750

    Massachusetts seems to cost about 5% more than average states. I want to try all of these bottles, but I could only afford $22 for a liter of OGDBiB, and that was bought for a gift.

    Those FRLE bottlings run upwards of $80-$90 here in California, I'd jump on a bottle at that price.

    That's a good price on the Four Roses, but high on the other two. Save up and get that LE Small Batch!

    Re: What did you pass up today? Autumn '12

    Wandering through one of my usual stores as I was curiuos to see if the second dump of PHC was in town. Didn't see any but they still had the first round on the shelf for $79.99. Had plenty so I moved on.

    Also saw several more of the BTEC 19yo Giant French Oak Barrel at $57.88 (seemed a bit much for a 375ml), CEHT Rye at $69.99 and a bit surprised to see a fair amount of FR 2012 LE SB for 75.99.

    But for now I passed on them since I already have one or more of them all.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Re: What did you pass up today? Autumn '12

    Passed on a WTAS($92) and Tradition ($121) plus a PHC GA($150) and 27yr ($205).

    I'm on a purchasing freeze, unless I see a WLW or Van Winkle release, but I'm not sure I would get any of these any way, not at these prices.

    Passed up full shelves of Four Roses LE Single Barrel and Small Batch (both 2012). I have a bottle of the Small Batch open and it is terrific.

    I am a little hesitant to jump on the Single Barrel. The only LE SB I have tried was last year's and I really struggled to enjoy it. Too much of a medicinal cherry (cough syrup?) taste to it. The nose on it was fantastic however. Maybe I can work up the courage to try to this year's...

    Don't judge this years or other years by the 2011 release. The 2012 has date showed itself to be far superior.

    Yeah, the 2012 1B is really good. But me? I'd grab another SmB instead.
