It's currently $16+ ($17 w/tax) on sale here. At that price I'll stock up. It's my favorite <$20 available (main competition - Jim Beam Black @ $16 and Old Grand Dad 86 @ $15). At >$20, I just won't buy it. I use a dollar-value rating system and WT101 = $18.
[Not available: any other OGD, VOB, Weller, Old Forester. FC103, BT, Ritt100 are $24 here.]
Tell us more about how that dollar-value rating system yields a price of $18 for WT. Is it a simple system we can use for any bourbon? Suggestions for how to adjust for variations in price from state to state? (In OH, if I understand you, WT is about $22 and should never be purchased.)
I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
