Passed on some WTKS, dark top, dated 2005. Plus some WTRR from around that same time, had the old style label.
Almost pulled the trigger, but pulled back in the end. Most likely, it will be there next time.

3 and 6 available at Bayview Village store in Toronto but had to line-up early to get them. I don't live in Toronto, so I missed out. Craftier individuals were able to pry them from other store managers earlier in the week.
I work right next to a liquor store in the downtown area and this particular store is located near all the luxury hotels. They have quite an impressive selection: BTAC 2012, PHC 2012, 4RSmBLE 2012...and all of it is about double list price. I'd love to pick up some of the PHC, but there's no way I can justify spending $160 on one bottle.
Lemme guess...Marketplace Wine & Spirits? Walked in there last year or so before the Pixies concert. Walked right back out.

Yes, but figure, a small store with limited inventory, probably high rent, and a limited customer base. I've been in that store as well. Nicely done, and yes, expensive. But, the answer is to simply not buy anything there if the prices offend you. I looked, then left without buying. But it is still a free country and he is free to charge whatever he likes for what he sells. No one is making anyone buy from him. I don't have a problem with the guy.
