    Hirsch 21yr Rye for $140 and Angel's Envy Cask Strength for around $175. This same store also had a lot of the 4RSB LE 2012 release, 3 bottles of 4RSmB LE 2012, and some PHC 2012, but I already have backups of all of these.

    I wish I lived in Kentucky and had this kind of selection. Although I would be very poor.

    Best regards, Tony

    I actually found some BTAC on the shelves for the first time (at a place no more than 100 feet out my front door). They wanted $110 for Stagg and $125 for THH so I passed on them both.

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

    Had a tip late yesterday on one last GTS '12 that might be left in my general area. Called the store and clerk said he still had one...but, in his words, "you better get over here as quick as possible...I don't know how long it will be here". I replied, "OK and BTW, how much is it?" He replied back, "oh it's $95-100 + tax". I politely said "thanks, but no thanks" and hung up. Now, if I had not already acquired 2, I might have given it a more prolonged period of thought because I have seen on the Forum where others have run into north of $100 for BTAC this year. However, my better judgment quickly overtook my generally bourbon-weak flesh and passed on it. If this is where it is headed in the future, I may very well have bought some of my last BTAC not only this year, but ever.

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

    I spent some time in the northern Indy area Saturday. I was hoping to find some BTAC or VW's. No VW's, I did see a couple bottles of Handy , but at $83.49, I passed. Also:

    Rittenhouse 25yr $179.99
    HW 21yr $129.99
    PHC '12 $89.99, I know it gets much love, but I'm not in love
    Did not see any of the FR's LE '12, couldn't believe that
    I may be drunk, but in the morning, I'll be sober and you'll still be ugly...WC

    32 dollars for Bernheim Wheat. This is one of the very few times I've seen it on a store shelf around here, but after spending so much on Thanksgiving groceries, I just couldn't pull the trigger.

    Passed on a PVW 20 @ $250 and a VWFRR @ $80 at the same store, kind of surprised on the small mark up on the rye when the 20 year was double the minimum.

    Consult your physician. Passing on VWFRR under any circumstances means there might be something wrong with you requiring immediate medical attention.

    All snarking aside, if I saw VWFRR for $80 I'd still consider it a bargain. $250 for 20 year BT juice is crazy, though.
