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

    1.75L bottles of 1792 Ridgemont Reserve @ $59.99 with a limited edition-type sticker called "The Collaboration". No idea what this was, but I wasn't going to buy it unless I heard more specifics about it.

    1.75L of Weller 12 @ $52. Like the product, just couldn't picture that large a bottle sitting on my shelf.

    People haven't been given the whiskey bible as a Xmas present yet. I'm guessing it'll happen soon.

    Passed up A.H. Hirsch gold foil, WLW, and ER 17. Got my hopes up for a second when I saw the Hirsch but it was 700euro. WLWs were 140 euro. I believe the guy was telling me they have 12 bottles of the Hirsch but just one was out. These are in Dublin.

    Other than that one place no one has had much bourbon. It's pretty high, maybe 25% to 30% higher than the US. Scotch and Irish whiskey seem similarly high. I'll be visiting Jameson in the next few days. Did the Guinness brewery already and that was great.

    Is part of that from the VAT (which I could get refunded if I spent enough if I took it with me out of the country)?. Alhough I have found bourbon and other US spirits to generally be higher in Europe than here in the US in general. Taxes, duties and/or import fees perhaps?
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Passed on the BTOC Saz 18 yr., which is on shelf for $90. Would have jumped at this one but funds diverted to other bottles.
