    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Summer 2013

    Stopped in a store today and the had AE Rye/Rum priced at $45. I asked if he was sure because I paid $70 for my first bottle. He made some remark about my questioning him so I bought 2 for $90 tax included.

    Yeah, standard price on the AE Rye here is $69.99, with the cheapest being around $63.99. Sounds like he priced it at the bourbon price, but if he insists on selling at a big discount, more power to him.

    Huh? Trying to talk a retailer into raising the price? At least you ended up right, counting your blessings and ordering two, thank you very much. I want to try AER - no hesitation @$45, tho.

    It's just another LDI rye variation.

    Yes, the base is LDI rye, but it's nothing like any other LDI rye...or any rye....anywhere....

    That's very nice of you, telling a shop owner he might've priced something wrong.

    In my dumber days, when Rogue switched from $4.99 bombers to $18 750mLs of some of their beers, I took major advantage of some shops that didn't raise the price like they were supposed to. I definitely knew better but did it anyway.

    I paid this back to a certain extent years later when a bottle of EH Taylor rung up as Old Taylor 6 year (a good $50 difference) I told the manager about the mistake (instead of grabbing the rest of them like I wanted to do )

    Totally agree. Very unique. Great after-dinner drink.

    LOVE this stuff. Heads would spun I'd have snatched up those $45 bottles so fast.
