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

    2 x THHandy $66, $75- I like it a lot, but just a little too spendy for what it is
    Bulleit 10 year - Regular expression is just okay IMO, and at $45, I think I could do a lot better
    Dickel Rye - I'll wait to hear what others have to say before I take the plunge, Rye's aren't my favorite anyway
    PHC12 $75 - good price so I picked up 1, but left 2 other behind
    Willet 4 year Rye $32 - I was tempted, but have a 5 and 6 year at home so I figured I didn't need to spend more on these.

    The cheaper stuff was and the overpriced place I PM'd you. Even if the PVW is WAY overpriced I don't want to help lurkers or flippers.

    Good call, and I need to be more attuned to that possibility.

What got my attention initially was the #8, which I can't recall seeing here locally before. The second thing that struck me was that even with a sale price of $21.99 on the #8, it's more than I paid for the #12 elsewhere a few months ago. I may need to shop around.
    Dickel pricing confounds me. The 12 has been $22.99 here for awhile but I paid $15.50 just a few months ago in Kentucky at Rite-Aid. Quite a percentage pricing difference just on location. The 8, at Binny's, is just a dollar cheaper than the 12 at $21.99. Cascade Hollow is the cheapie on pricing here at $14.99. A Dickel over $20 is a pass for me.

    The Dickel 12 here was 21.99 when I bought it the day after Christmas. Haven't checked lately, as I'm not buying it again.

    I passed on a PVW 23yr today. They were asking $500, so it was very easy to say no! The girl said they have had it since early November and several people have asked about it. She said so far, everybody has said that's way too high a price and walked out. Good for them!

    I could see a store in NY asking that price, but Kentucky?

    Passed up Chestnut Farms, Two Star and Black Ridge. Never seen them locally here in GA.

    I did find the Chestnut Farms bottle humorous. It's the EH Taylor bottle with the EH Taylor "tax stamp" paper band, but it just says 90 proof on the band. These offerings just look like they were put out on the cheap. It's almost like Sazarac over ordered Weller, EH Taylor and PVW bottles and couldn't return them, so they filled them up and sent them out.
