    I don't recall but it was definitely only 80 proof. I'll check the back label next time I see it.

    Sounds like the same old mouthwash in a new and improved bottle.

    How about the new Eagle Rare bottles? Don't know about improved but pretty nice looking.

    I like the new black background, they kind'a jump off the shelf. Passed up a '12 THH for $89.99 today. $20 too much, IMO.

    I passed on a shelf full of 86 proof OGD liters and 750's. Incidentally, the handles next to them were the new 80 proof expression. One must look *very* carefully at the neck tag to see the difference between the stylized 6 and 0 in the proof statement. Sneaky bastards those Beam folks are.

    I also passed on NEW Jacob's Ghost and some flavored bourbon and Canadian stuff.

    Temporarily passed up some 139.4 proof 2012 PHC. Will be buying two more on Friday. It is much better than the first batch of the 2012 version. It actually has a finish.

    In my county, OGD is 7.25/12.95/20.25/28.95 for .375/.750/1.0/1.75 including taxes.

    Yes, the Liter is a bad deal compared to the other three not counting the proof difference in the family size.

    Re: What Did You Pass Up Today? Spring '13

    Passed on the 2012 versions of:
    3 x Saz 18
    3 x ER 17
    2 X Handy
    All at $69.99
    I already have an open bottle of each of the 2011 releases and I have neither the space nor funds to be bunkering. Nice to see some reasonable prices for all those though. I hadn't seen anything less than $89.99 for any of the 2012 stuff anywhere in the Twin Cities.

    Do they ship? I would happily buy the Sazerac and ER.
