    What Did You Pass Up Today? Spring '13

    Anybody know any details?
    I've had a bottle. Darned good stuff.

    Nobody knows for sure where it comes from but the nas is thought to have Heaven Hill roots and probably the same for this. There is an interview with Charles Medley about it on Tom Fischer's site with so little information it's not worth linking. A pass for me at $50 here too.

    There was a little bit of discussion about it here back in January http://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...Medley-12-Year

    The stuff flew off the shelf and it was gone forever. As was mentioned earlier, it was a good drink but I can understand being skeptical of $50 price tag.

    Recently, I've seen this Old Medley 12 at every store that has a modest selection.

    I would pass at that price even if I knew the source.

    I was very tempted by a Taylor Tornado and a PHC Cognac today! Nice prices, and I really like both of these, but I'm trying to combat my whiskeyrexia nervosa with a buying freeze. I feel like I took my first step toward recovery. Not sure why I even tempted myself by walking into the store, but I guess that as bad of a compulsion as is purchasing more than I need.
