    hate it when that happens. had the opposite happen to me the other day, got the shelf price on a Lagavulin DE instead of the system price, saved $20!

    I'm a fan of that Bowman barrel 45.

    Today I got a private barrel strength SB bottling of FR OESK aged 10 yrs 7mos, also grabbed a Weller 12.

    $50 for an 80proof unaged whiskey?!!!

    Broke my "no more whiskey in 2012" vow one last time - in Louisville on business and just couldn't pass up a Four Roses Barrel Proof Private Barrel Selection (OBSK; 10 yrs & 9 months; 121.6 proof). Also picked up a 375 mL of High West Double Rye (as I *think* I liked this . . . but didn't want to bet a full bottle to find out!) I think I'll label all of this as my Christmas present from our cats

    Grabbed the last bottle of Weller 12yr from the local store. Now I just gotta re-supply on my OWA so I can finally try the much loved Weller blend.

    This has been a fun month for me. It's been my first full year of being a bourbon enthusiast, and I was able to purchase both ORVW 10/107 and Weller 12yr... both of which disappear quick out here.

    Got out of town for a funeral the other day, so managed to swing by a couple of favorites and picked up some Weller 12 and also some more of the FRSmB 2012.

    That's weird. Every time I've found a pricing inconsistency -- even just a wrong sticker on a bottle, and pointed it out at the register, they've charged either the lower price on the bottle, or (if the sticker was higher than expected) the lower price from the barcode. Better to lose $10 and make a steady customer than to lose a customer and possibly get a call from the state Attorney General's consumer protection office or the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission.

    I'll top that, I recently vatted my remaining ORVW 10/107 with the remains of a stellar, older age statement bottle of OWA 7 year, 107. The added sweetness of the Weller Antique blended wonderfully with the more complex and spicy ORVW.
