    Couldn't agree more.

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

    I passed up a dozen or so bottles of Weller Special Reserve with the 7 yr. age statement and the old label from around 2006. The owner said he was probably going to have to close shop permanently...better get it while the get'nz good! Luso Liquor.

    Passed up several bottles of WTRB batch 01-97. They look like they have been sitting there for a while. Is 97 the bottled date, should I have picked some up?

    Buy the WT if the price is right, the newer version is going to be a bit different.

    One of my local places had quite a few bottles of JPS18 @ $89.99. They've been sitting for a few weeks, so hopefully the price comes down slightly. For all the good things I've read on them it seems like I should pick one up, but I'd rather have 3-4 bottles of OWA or Weller 12 than a single of JPS18.

    JPS 18yr is very batch dependent. I've had some that range from ok to excellent. I don't see the price of those coming down at all. It seems that sales of this have picked up in my area. I'd attribute it to the "do you have pappy, no but we have this" syndrome.

    These should be pretty good. I'd pay retail for them,
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

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

    Passed on a slew of Jeffers Creek 6yo today. First time I have noticied it in my area. It may be Barton instead of BT juice but they seemed to have plenty of Weller bottles left over!

    On the plus side it is is 6yo age stated whiskey. But at 80 proof it didn't have much appeal for me. Well, none actually. And if they aren't selling it under their own name, whether it be Barton or BT, it makes me wonder what they are trying to get rid of. Inferior product I presume until proven otherwise.

    A bit interesting that the DBA, Kings Mark Company, is listed as being in Louisville rather than Bardstown or Frankfurt but then again none of the business shenanigans the distillers do makes much sense to me. I can only guess it makes sense for them.
