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

    Passed on a couple of Ritt 21 & 23's. Unfortunately I've met my spending quota for the month (though Mrs. Flyer may say for the quarter) and the $120 & $150 price tags were reasonable but too high for a single bottle right now.

    Michter's 20yr @ $470, then shocked to go back a few days later and found it gone.

    There seems to be quite a bit of Van Winkle product moving around in Kentucky the past few weeks despite the cancellation of the spring release. I told on Thursday that I could "special order" whatever I wanted and it would take a week to get it. I don't get it.

    Apparently the distributor in Kentucky for Sazerac, and thus Van Winkle, (Republic) held back a portion of the fall 2012 release for release this spring pre-Derby. JVW has stated publicly there was no official spring release this year.

    ECBP for $70. I was in the local tourist trap know as The Gaslamp Quarter. The place a had a great selection though.

    90 proof Angelo Lucchesi Jack Daniels @34.99 - many bottles, too high a price.
    Michters 25 year old rye - @290. I've never seen it for under 400. I was sorely tempted, but wanted to spend the money elsewhere. If I ever taste it and am blown away I'll kick myself but for now I'm content to walk away.

    I passed on Willet 9 year from the gift shop, and EC12 BP from the gift shop before I left KY. I had just spent too damn much money at that point. Nothing else was that tempting by the end.
