    What Did You Pass Up Today? Spring '13

    Passed on more of the Willett RR that I got the other day. Saw some of the same at a different store for $25 more per. M'thinks the poor clerk rang me up wrong on Wednesday. Oopsie. Anywho, these were $52 and $62 for the 8 and 10, respectively.

    Passed on an Eagle Rare 10/101 decanter (No.1). "While he said make me an offer," it seemed to be only half full but was in pristine condition with box. Also, the tax strip, while in perfect condition was taped to the decanter on one end, was slightly suspicious.

    But I am curious, is it worth going back and making an offer and if so, how much? Probably wouldn't drink it due to possible lead but might be neat to have on the bar.

    Very Old Scout was decent when I tasted it last week. It seems to be everywhere right now though.

    Passed on some Rebel Yell today that was in a newly shaped bottle. Looked like the same swill that's normally in the $10-$15 range but was marked at $30.99. Has there been any change to the juice or is this store just looking for suckers who think it's something new?IMG_0994.jpg

    Is this labeled Rebel Reserve by any chance?

    Nope. Definitely Rebel Yell and it was actually 31.99. A dollar more than the Eagle Rare 10 yr sitting right next to it.
