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

    Passed on a few 2010 THH's and some 2009 & 2010 OFBB's this weekend. May go back for one of Handy's but am trying to budget for the 2012 PHC's that I plan to buy

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

    Passed on some Wiser's Legacy and Rendezvous Rye the other day. May go back for one or both though.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Legacy is that good, huh? I've not had either.

    As a Canadian I may be biased, but Wiser's Legacy is one of the few HIGH quality sipping Canadian whiskies - and it's not the watery 40% like the vast majority of others (including Forty Creek).

    Any others you would recommend?

    Probably for some I wouldn't ever have a opportunity to try, but it's always good to have a reference. Looking forward to opening my FC Confederation Oak some day, probably the only one I will ever have.

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

    I'll get this thread back on track...was browsing SB about 30 minutes ago when I decided to check the store across the street from my parents' house. I was surprised to find a Vintage Rye 23 ($99) and a AH Hirsch 16 Gold Foil ($300), but passed on both. $300 for the gold foil is actually the lowest I've seen it in the wild, but that much money buys an awful lot of bourbon.

    Unfortunately, it appears that most (all?) of the small batch/single barrel/limited releases are bottled by American companies and shipped back to Canada (Royal Canadian small batch & Caribou Crossing from Sazerac, Masterson's, Jefferson's, Whistlepig etc).

    From limited experience, of the currently available offerings bottled by the producers:
    Alberta Premium, 100% rye, 40%ABV. (If you find a dusty bottle of 25yo or 30yo GRAB IT!!!)
    Forty Creek, they are all good. (I'm looking forward to the newly released port wood reserve)
    Wiser's (small batch, legacy, 18yo) are all good but the best bang for your buck is the Legacy.
    Danfield's 21yo
    Crown Royal XR is good but, IMO, not worth the $180Cdn (knock out the 1 and it might be on my shelf)
