    Passed on a PHC 12 @ $100, seem like the same store gets it in my area and charges that same price, couldn't pull the trigger for that price.

    That has been what most stores are charging here in Michigan.

    Did you confront them on the price?
    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.

    I did actually. I go in there from time to time so felt ok talking to him about it.

    He said he had to buy $4000 worth of Buffalo Trace product to get the Pappy so was charging extra to make up for what he had to spend on product that is going to take him a while to sell. I said I understand that he could charge what he wanted but it seemed like a lot. He said that he only adds about $100 to a bottle(which is way to much to me). I pointed out that the 15 yo is supposed to be 79.99 and that he was getting a lot more than a $100 more and he said he had people willing to pay it. More power to him I guess but I guess this confirms why I do not give him that much business.

    Best regards, Tony

    Passed up some Jim Beam white yesterday. I was just like, "Bitch! Why?"
