    Me too. Well, I've got 2 of the Saz, but I'd definitely buy one of the ER17. I've heard 2012 was a very good year for it.

    What Did You Pass Up Today? Spring '13

    I.W. Harper 15 Year for $80. I was very excited to see it until I turned the bottle and saw the price tag.

    THH for $99.99 and a Saz for $69.99. I suppose I was looking at a "baby Saz". Both too salty for me when Ritt BIB is $20.

    Whoa, a baby Saz was $69?! Or you passed on a Saz 18 at that price?

    While that is certainly marked up you may not run into another. I have been through a few bottles of it so would probably pass but would easily pay $80 for Centennial if it was on the shelf next to it.

    It was a standard Sazerac Rye not the BTAC version. Is "baby Saz" something different than those? Maybe I'm confusing the lingo here.

    You are right. Baby Saz is the quasi 6 year old 90 proof Sazerac. It is supposed to be $30ish. I think the $69 price tag made it appear is was the 18 year version. I would pass on that for $69 also.

    Yep I had sticker shock as well. I even checked the BT website when I got back just to make sure I was looking at the right bottle and it was the plain Jane Saz. Even the THH was overpriced from what I have seen elsewhere. But will always pass on rye in that range.
