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

    I passed on a number of things this week. 7 different BTECs. All 3 of the lost Old Charter barrels '89, '91, and '93. There were the 2 French Oak bottles and also the Rice and Oats. The Rice and Oats were on clearance at $35 I think and the others were around $60. The French Oaks might have been $65. I didn't pay that much attention.

    For the past few years I've been passing on a Hirsch 21 year Rye for $999 that has been laying on its side all that time. I also passed on the Hirsch 25 year bourbon sitting next to it for around $275. Is the 21 rye the same bottle that I've seen mentioned a lot around here recently? I have always ignored all Hirsch bottlings other than the 16 year bourbon and probably will continue to do so. I've always wondered why that bottle was so expensive. The store that has always had it generally has really good prices on things.

    I also passed on a Rittenhouse 23 Rye for $199

    Port Ellen 32 Year distillery bottle for $600+

    Lagavulin 21 Year distillery bottle for $500+

    Those seem like decent prices on BTEC. I like the rediscovered barrels, wouldn't mind trying the French oak.

    The Hirsch 21 is seriously overpriced. Hirsch 21/22/25 is supposed to be either Medley or COK stock, hence the interest around these parts. My buddy picked up a Hirsch 21 for under 150 last week. And all of my Hirsch ryes have cost me around that. But a grand for a poorly stored bottle? That is a no-brainer. It is delicious stuff though, if you're a rye kinda guy...

    wasn't sure if either of these was good or not. limit 1 on the SB? even had this fancy display for the 10.
    checked Chuck's comments; he notes no age statement on the SB.

    My local pub has Bulleit Borbon. I thought about ordering, but didn't . Went home and had a Jeffersons Presedential Select 18 instead. good choice I think :-)
    Well, how can it not be McCormick's, the $7 well bourbon of the finest dive bars? Tastes like kerosene and sadness.

    Sheesh....I know a store like that. The only reason I stop there is for their private barrel FR1B.

    I went dusty hunting out of town yesterday and passed an OC 10 86 for $23. It was tough, because I've never had it, but it seemed high.

    Another place had HMcK 10 BIB for $32, also seemed high. I ended up buying some Armagnac instead.

    That's the place where I got the private barrel BT and it was priced right ($22.) They also had a private barrel Eagle Rare for $29. I haven't had it yet but may try it some time.

    This place had dozens and dozens of the overpriced stock. I wonder why...?

    I would have a long fight with my credit cards over that one. Lowest I've seen is around $900.
