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

    2x Ritt 23 almost pulled the trigger but then I remembered I went on a whiskey buying rampage 2 weekends ago

    Also a handful of 84 proof Makers Mark purple dipped bottles to celebrate the Ravens winning the Super Bowl...I am sure they will be worth Millions Some day.,

    A bottle of Bakers at $39.95, just a bit too much.

    Michter's SB 20 year @ $150 (That would be a record for me, for a single bottle)
    THH (132.4 proof, don't know what year that would make it) @ $107 (is that retail?) Not yet fully on board with ryes

    2009 4R SB LE (barrel strength 58.3%, Warehouse SS, Barrel 43-3L) @ $93 each. I haven't tried this yet, so didn't want to pull the trigger. I was able to taste a private selection from the adjoining restaurant, and thought it was mostly too hot and therefore unbalanced. That sort of factored into the pass.

    Not bourbon, but saw 4 different "Connoisseurs Choice" scotches from Gordon and MacPhail. (I looked, and didn't see a Scotch thread for pass-ups).

    Benrines Distillery, 17 years, Distilled in 1968 @$86
    Imperial Distillery, 17 years, Distilled in 1970 @$96
    Royal Brackla Distillery, 18 years, Distilled in 1972 @$110
    Balmenach Distillery, 19 years, Distilled in 1972 @$110

    Records are made to be broken! I've never seen that bottle retail for less than 350, go back and buy it!

    THH is definitely overpriced. The 2009 4R LE 1B is the sweetest tasting Four Roses I've ever had, FWIW. Price is definitely on the high side though.

    Do you mean that the 4R is actually sweet, or was "sweetest tasting" a standing in for something like "best" or "most awesome" or similar?

    The $92 would also break a record for me (for bourbon).

    What's so special about the Michter's?

    Actually sweet. Not spicy like the private selection you were describing.

    As for the Michter's, I've never had it because of the high price point, but here's a link:

    http://www.bonappetit.com/blogsandfo...l-bourbon.html

    The article seems to indicate that it is a very limited run of bottles. I've only ever seen it 3 places, and never for under 350, in the Northeast.

    It retails for $65-$70 and I've actually seen it for $70 - $120 around here.

    Edit: and the 4R LEs go for ~$80 in these parts

    There would have been a cloud of dust looney tunes style as I ran to the register.
