The AH Hirsch 16 was nice enough but if it were a fraction of the price I would still pass.
The NPP stuff masquerading as Hirsch today I will pass at any price.
Hirsch 21/22 rye sub $150ish is a no brainier buy every time I see em. AH 16 is a bit more tricky and price dependent.
THH,ER17,CEHT SB,CEHT Rye and '12 OFBB not bad prices just have plenty and the Sampler is right around the bend.

Do people do a lot of trading at the Sampler?
Two bottles of Elijah Craig 12 - Barrel Proof.
Call me contrarian, but this barrel proof craze is wearing me out. A retailer that I'm friendly with told me that he received three bottles of the EJ12BP on Friday and they were purchased within an hour by one person. When he said to the new customer "Are you a big fan of the regular proof Elijah Craig 12?" the buyer said, "I've never tried it before but these new ones are going to be hard to find and they're barrel proof, which is awesome."
Intelligent fellow, they are going to be hard to find.
On EC12BP - I'm hoping the smart people at HH put out a ton of this stuff and it filters down to us bottom-feeders. I won't pay an arm and a leg, if they say $40 MSRP, that's what I'll pay or go without. Buying the standard EC12 for $20 is sufficient consolation.
OFBB 2012, $39, which seemed decent price, but didn't pull the trigger, maybe circle back later in a week or so.
Today I ran across a couple of handles of WSR 90 with 7 yr AS. I passed, but not sure I should have.
What is a price you'd be a buyer at?
