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

    sadly, that V17 was not a craigslist price, i dont shop for booze there, dont want to support flippers. It was at a small store in Manhattan that actually had a decent selection considering the area. They were telling me that it was "the same bourbon as pappy" from the old Stizler-Weller Distillery... In any event, they dont have a website, but they are not alone in completely overpricing their stuff. I found another store in brooklyn that is selling it at $120. http://www.liquorsgalore.com/vintage...-year-old.html

    17 year whisky from a place that stopped distilling more than 20 years ago? Not hardly.

    I completely got mixed up about what thread I was in and went for a second.

    Yeah, I should have split them out, and moved the ryes. Sorry about that.

    Oh, no. I meant I thought this was the "what did you PURCHASE" thread. I love a good high dollar whiskey haul, but I was thinking "holy $#!@ that's $650 of CEHT Rye alone!"

    Now I'm laughing, cause I've never tasted a Rye, so buying 10 bottles (@$70 here) of EXPENSIVE rye would be a huge risk for me.

    Until I can prevail upon friends (or friendly bartenders) to taste a few of the higher end expressions, I'm sticking to the mid-shelf (<$45/750) and lower stuff. The JPS18 (and to a lesser extent the Lot B) were disappointments. I have high hopes for the 4R "rarities", but will have to travel (or go online) to obtain those.

    Why did you pass up? There's not much value in the thread if you just list a bunch of bottles that are pretty easy to find anywhere you go.

    Granted, 90% of the time people are passing on something because the price is too high (or they are too broke), but the "why" is still the reason I read the thread.

    Trey, the why (for this particular listing) is partly explained in post #187. That being said, I read (and post) in this thread from a different standpoint - the majority of the stuff I see mentioned here (and that I post about) is NOT widely available where I am. (In fact, I drool over what you guys apparently have on a daily basis in NOLA).

    To give you an example, I spent yesterday shopping. I went in roughly 15 stores. Twelve of those I've never been in, the other 3 I had. Only 2 had the CEHT products. Both had the rye, but one had the Barrel Strength, and the other had the Single Barrel. Only two stores of the 30 or so I've been in over the last 6 months have had any High West products. I can only buy Weller products in one store, due to state-wide contractual arrangements with the distributor for Weller.

    If the stuff is easy to find anywhere that YOU go, then you are a lucky man.

    In fact, PM me if you can get your hands on the Tornado Survivor CEHT.

    1 X PVW23 - $299
    1 X THH - $79
    1 X CEHT tornado - $80

    Relatively reasonable prices for this area in this day and age, but over MSRP for sure. I had to pass, got bottles of each bunkered already.
