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

    The other day I passed up every CEHT release at ~$73 and PHC 2012 at $81.

    What did you pass up today? Autumn '12

    JPS 18 for $95. No thanks, I know where to get it for $70.
    This particular store has been sitting on 5 bottles for weeks, but somehow sold 3 bottles since MON.

    At least around here, nice bottles that have been sitting around for months (or in some cases years) all started disappearing very rapidly the week that VW came and went. I think everything else became consolation prizes for the VW hunters.

    Good call, that's a possibility.

    With the holidays approaching people need bottles for bosses, customers, friends, etc...

    And if it's expensive it must be good, right?

    I passed up about 4 or 5 Angel's Envy CS. I saw them at two different stores and when I asked if they had ever sold some of them, I was told no by both places. I know I will never buy any of them, but I was curious.

    Passed on EC20 and Whistlepig 111. Not that it matters, but I thought the point of the Whistlepig was that it was 111 proof for $111. It was slightly north of that. Maybe they didn't get the memo.

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

    I was buying Baby Saz at a store I like a lot for $29.99/btl earlier this year (which sounds high, but for whiskey products, Massachusetts seems to be about $5/btl over many other states). They've been sold out of it for a while.

    It just showed up at another store I regularly visit, in the cabinet with the top-shelf bottles (is there a term in the industry for these display cabinets?), now priced at $39.99.

    33% price increase? No thanks.
