    That's $20 cheaper than these parts.

    I think $15-$20 a fifth is about right. There is a place close by that has handles of the old label from 2006 for $30. They look similar to this:

    Probably $30ish. Might get one at $35 since they're dusty.

    That's the ones joe, and these were $32+tax for the 1.75s. When I can get Weller 12 for under $40, I wanted them cheaper.
    Maybe I'll offer them $60 for both.

    Not today, but I can already tell you what I'll be passing on in the future...remember talk of the sherry finished Beam Distillers Masterpiece? Well, it will be available first week in May, only at Beam, for only $199. Yeah, no.

    FWIW, I had a bourbon cocktail made with sherry and port at the Bourbon Classic. It was interesting...something I'd have again, but not because I wanted bourbon. The bourbon was lost in the sherry, really.

    I recently passed on EC 20, and the extra aged version of Rittenhouse (with "Rittenhouse" vertically on the label). They both cost $170ish. I guess with no VW, they had to put something else into the display case.

    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."

    Indeed

    Same here, the price was 50 bucks which is supposedly state minimum here in Michigan, that's not the issue I'm sure he wasn't lying to me. However I has just bought a bottle of Templeton Rye at 40 bucks and It just really wasn't in my budget and he had plenty of other cool single barrel stuff for less to keep me occupied, including single barrel versions of regular EC12. Plus I think I'm still fairly early in my bourbon journey to fully appreciate it.

    I'm also banking on the fact that they will release this again, or maybe even make it a semi regular thing.

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

    Left an Old Medley 12yo on the shelf. Searched and found a few references to it here but not much detail in recent posts. I presume this is sourced bourbon but no idea where it is from. Apparently a somewhat limited release but just not sure it worth the price tag (around $50 I believe) for 86.8 proof whiskey without knowing a bit more about it given EC12 is half that.

    Anybody know any details?
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Left an AAA 10-Star from the early 90s on the shelf (only because I have no idea if it would be any better/different than current, and I've got plenty).
