    A bottle of JPS 17YO Batch 3 for $100... was that a mistake?

    Whether it is a mistake is really more a matter of personal choice. It is higher than it was originally at retail but depending on where you are that may unavoidable and a low batch JPS 17yo seems to be getting increasingly rare. If you really want it, and you can afford it, then it is not necessarily a mistake.

    Having liked the JPS 18yo I have and wanting to try the 17yo, which has generally had very positive reviews that I recall and which I have never seen on the shelf (although admittedly I haven't had the chance to go to many stores outside my home area recently), I would have at least seriously considered buying it myself.

    Passed on some 2011 Handy at 2012 prices.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Passed on a bottle of the St. George 30th Anniversary Edition Single Malt Whiskey.

    It was pretty with the shiny black box and all but not $400 worth of pretty for me. But might be just the ticket for somebody else!

    I would be tempted by that one if they also agreed to come by and do my yard work for a year.

    Passed on a 1.75 of Weller Special Reserve. Don't see too many of the family sized bottles of the Weller around here. Had the "aged 7 years" label on the neck as opposed to the 90 proof. Can someone tell me how long ago the label change happened? Thanks

    That change happened around the beginning of 2012...maybe January or February IIRC.

    Thanks for the info. Didn't know if this bottle was perhaps a little older as it had accumulated a fair bit of dust.
