    Their sticker is on the side of the bottle. I'm curious because I thought this is normally a blend and if that's so, what did they select? And who would sell 15yo bourbon for $30 these days? I should have asked them about it but I was in a hurry.

    They also have a Hi Time selected Elijah Craig Small Batch that made me wonder that same thing. If it's not a single barrel then what are they selecting? Different barrel blends?

    I not an $80 whiskey buyer either and I bought 3. When you compare proof to some others it helps justify it a bit more. I would buy another if the 131.6's if I came across one.

    I think I would have to pass that up too. Especially, since I have 2 of those in the bunker.
    I'm not an expert but I have lots of opinions!

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

    Passed on the Vintage 23 yr Rye and the Willett Family 25 yr Rye's at their gift shop. I'd love to try them both, but at $230 and $250, I have to pass. Passed on most of the HH gift shop stuff as well, pricey stuff. I think it is a bit crappy they have stacks of the EWBP in the gift shop at $80, when they are releasing them for $40 around the states in a limited offering. I understand a limited mark up to not piss off the local stores, but not double. Oh well, not going to lose any sleep over it, spent my money elsewhere.
