    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Summer 2013

    My name is Paddy and I'm proud to report that I've been clean for 7 days (I did purchase 9 cigars today). Oh well, there is always tomorrow!

    I agree. I am not part of the problem. I left more ECBP on the shelf than I bought. And I sold two today well below market value - just trying to defray my costs, not squeeze every last penny of profit. Happy? ;-)

    Acquired 2012 FR SmB LE in a trade. Can't wait to open this one up.

    I also acquired 2013 OFBB in a trade. Today was a good day.

    Beam Signature seems to have started arriving in Atlanta. Had both the 12yo and the "Rare Spanish Brandy" versions. Decided to hold off on the 12yo for now but picked up the Brandy version. Might not get to it for awhile though.

    Still no sign of OFBB 13 or the new PHC in local stores that I have seen.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Hmmm, do you have any other instructions on how I am supposed to handle my bourbon? ;-)

    We have a market-based economy. The price reflects what the market will bear. I can't begrudge a person from using that to their advantage if they deal in an honest manner. Afterall, he isn't the cause of the high price - it's the people paying $140 that are. If the demand isn't there, the price will drop.

    I choose not to operate in that manner (well, most of the time). I'd rather share the bourbon and build relationships. Fortunately, the market-based economy lets me do that and it lets me choose who I do business with. If someone is charging more than what I want to pay, I can just walk away (which I do quite often). There's plenty of good bourbon to enjoy in its place.

    Picked up a Blanton's Gold this morning. Here's the full selection of bourbon at this shop in Stockholm.

    I suspect the same people that complain about "gouging" in the whisky business are themselves "gouging" their own goods/services in the eyes of someone else.

    its the same thing as ticket scalping, and society thinks lowly enough of it that there are laws against it. sure, people will still use a scalper to get something they want. The problem, as i see it, is that the distiller, singer, etc...priced the item at a level they thought fair, and offered them to the open public, but someone else comes along and scoops it all up and resets the price, to the exclusion of the people who are likely the most true fans.

    but thats just me. if i dont like something done to me, i sure as hell wont do it to someone else. ever.

    im not ranting against you, CL. relax.

    Difference being scalping is legal in plenty of places.
