Passed on some smooth ambler old scout 6 yr at $36 and 2012 PHC at $79 (133.2 proof). Hopefully Santa will bring me the PHC as it's not in my current budget.
PHC 27 year - $230
Michter's 25 year - $350
Old Fitzgerald, ca. 1901 - $999 - I felt like Danny Devito in Romancing the Stone - "I had it in my hands, Ira!"
I'd like to see the provenance on that circa 1901.
One of my local haunts got a bit of WLW in yesterday. I was hoping to find some of the 12' but it was all the 11'. I left three on the shelf after grabbing a few.
'12 THH,ER17 and a few Lot B's,just not what I was looking for.

Bought most of what I wanted today. Passed on some Whistlepig, bunch of Smooth Ambler, 1.75s of Weller 12, and a few others that are escaping me at the moment.
Passed on a lone bottle of ORVW10/107 and some Handy. They're the only remnants I've seen of this week's Los Angeles Pappy/BTAC madness.
Oh, and a dark top WT KS.
I passed up on a lone FR LE Small Batch 2010.
I'm kicking myself on not getting it the more that I think about it.
Probably the only good thing is that it will probably still be there next time i pass through the area.
