    I believe he was particularly taken with the label.

    Just a wild guess, but that may have been one of the age stated Johnny Drum Private Stock bottles (used to be 15 years old, now is NAS). Either way that is too high. The rent in that place must be too damn high. The Rent Is Too Damn High!

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

    Stopped to grab a six pack at a liquor store just down from my office yesterday when I noticed a bottle of Pappy 23 in the bag sitting on the shelf behind the counter. I asked the checkout guy about it and he turns to the owner and says how much? The owner tells me $599 but I'll make you a deal $500 right now if you want it. I said no thanks!

    Should have offered him fifty bucks and a couple bottles of Old Bardstown.

    Never walk away from a negotiation unless you simply have no interest! You shoulda counter-offered as he was obviously willing to dicker. You may not have brought him down to a reasonable level, but at least you could have shown you will pay a reasonable price. Dropping his price without dickering was a clear call for further discussion. A counter of, "Five hundred is a steep price for a bottle that retails for under three hundred," would have flowed right out of my mouth.

    Passed up some Willett Family Reserve 6 year stuff for $45. Boarder line purchase, like the proof, but the 5 yr I had was disappointing. Ended up passing on the bottle, maybe if I'm bored in a month or 2 and its still in stock I'll take the plunge.

    Passed up on 5 bottles of JPS18 batch 9 priced at $145 each. This is at a store I don't buy from but check in on from time to time. They are really proud of those 5 bottles and unwilling to move on price for all 5 bottles even if I plan on purchasing a case of 12 of something.
