    Should or Shouldn\'t I?

    Dear SB.com
    I'm travelling for business and stopped in a liquor store in Auburn Hills, MI. Low and Behold, three Evan Williams Single Barrel '90 Millenium at 44.95 per (The globes, seals intact and boxed) and a Hirsch 20 for 119.95. Should I take them all?
    I have to lug them on the plane as carry-on (carion?)

    Ed, I'll take one if you don't want them all for yourself!

    Buy them, Man! Buy them!

    Actually, it depends on what you will think when you get home.

    If you will regret not getting them, then get them.

    If you will regret having spent that much money, then blow the bottles a kiss goodbye and come home with a full wallet.

    Jeff,
    That's all the motivation I needed. Tomorrow, after dreaded quarterly business review with corporate weenies, I head to the Red Wagon and empty the shelves. Three Millenia, one for Jeff, one to drink and one to save and a 20 year old Hirsch. How do I make this a business expense?

    Even tho the EWSB Globe 90 is rare even according to Bettye Jo, that seems a bit steep. There was a guy selling them on ebay for $25 just a few months back and the shipping was like $8... And they were not really getting bids at all, some went for the $25 and ones that didn't get any bids at all got relisted, but I dont think any went for over that. Its good bourbon in there but that $45 seems a bit steep. If you wanna drink it for that price fine, but i don't think even saving it youd stand to make much of a profit on it.

    $120 was an average price for Hirsch 20 before this latest jump to around $200-220 on the internet sites. If you don't have any Hirsch 20 around I'd say grab that to have for a special occassion. Just my suggestions.

    Thanks Ed! I am really enjoying the EW Millenium that I brought home from the festival and now one in reserve. Let's hook up at Nicholson's while we can and I'll show my appreciation with a nice Bolivar
