    Re: What Did You Pass Up Today? Winter '12/'13

    I've been looking for a bottle of OFBB, but it was not difficult to pass one up at $80.

    Left 5 WT101 Ryes on the shelf for 23 a piece. While its a solid pour I find myself drawn to Rittenhouse instead.

    Seeing these reported prices ($150+ for 17 year+ bourbon) puts them in direct competition with a lot of older single cask Scotch, and for me, that's an easy choice.

    Edit: To add something substantive, I kept putting off an online order for an extra bottle of PHC 6th for weeks, and when I finally went to order for real...it was gone.

    $150 for Vintage 17 is just silly. Sure, supply has dwindled to basically nothing around here, but it doesn't have the recognition of Pappy to sell at that price. Heck, the PHC 2012 seems to be languishing on shelves around here at $79.99. I picked up a few V17 wheaters from a Total Wine in NJ for $64 just a couple of months ago (they're all gone now).

    Left about 5 HW 21 year old ryes on the shelf at an outstanding price of $99 a bottle. Just don't have the funds for that today, heading to Vegas in 20 days.

    Put a HW 16 year in my cart, but further analysis revealed that it had sat on it's side too long and the fill level was down and the cork was saturated to the top. Bummed out, wanted to try it, but not worth the gamble.

    I doubt there is any Bourbon on the market that is so much better than Parker 12 as to be worth twice the price. Of course I'm speaking of genuine quality here, not scarcity or market driven perceptions. I refuse to pay an inflated price for anything just because it might be hard to get.

    My guess is that V17 price is a Craigslist price.
