    EH Talyor rye, small batch, single barrel & barrel proof. The rye was marked $59 down from $69 a couple of weeks ago. They did have the small batch at $69 though.

    A couple of EC18's and still a ton Ritt BIB on the shelf. I did see one interesting thing though. It was a new Holland bourbon beer barrel age barrel. I guess agin beer in bourbon barrels was a hit so why not try the inverse. I won't be a buyer but had to laugh at the idea. It did not have a price marked and I didn't ask. I would assume it is young LDI finished in their stout barrels.

    Passed up about a case of WTR101 today. I have 4 or 5 bunkered so didn't want to pay $25 each.

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

    Found out one of my local chains (Fat Dog) has been bought by Spec's, one of the larger chain outfits here in Texas. This bodes well I believe for my neck of the woods, as their bourbon selection in said store has greatly expanded. Unfortunately all they had extra today were some bottom shelf HH (a six year, 80 proof Tom Moore knock off stood out the most) and KBD brands, like Rowan's Creek, Kentucky XO, and some Willet 5 year rye. I was tempted by the Willet, but decided not to pull the trigger today.

    Passed on a High West 21 yr old rye and a bottle of 2011 THH. Both were priced around there typical MSRP, just didn't feel like parting with the coin for them today.

    I understand YMMV, but is it really that good and worth the money?

    Just to put my money where my mouth is Binny's had Tradition at $99.99 at the get together this weekend. I did as I said I would a bottle came home with me as it did 2 or 3 other guys.

    That makes 2 I have.

    Little shop up north in Inwood. I don't know if it's the current allocation or was on the shelf for a while. I'm sure the only reason it's still there is because it's off the beaten path. The feeding frenzy for the limited releases has taken the fun out of finding and picking them up. Not to mention jacking the prices beyond any sensible level. Thankfully the bunker is fully stocked with preciouses so there are no must-haves out there. And if something happens along at a reasonable price, it can be grabbed.

    1) Classic question.

    2) $140 is a really REALLY good price ... especially for NYC. The MSRP that the distillery gave out is $129.99! You're only getting a $10 markup in NYC. That's ridiculously good.
