    Re: What did you pass up today? Summer '13

    Passed on the first James E. Pepper 1776 bourbon I have seen locally. $30 for 100 proof NAS (but probably relatively young LDI/MGP bourbon) of a co-opted old brand and history just didn't have much appeal.

    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Re: What did you pass up today? Summer '13

    Passed on some OC 10 yr and some WSR 7yr. Think the most interesting thing I saw was a 375 of OWA (I've never seen that size back home, and saw it in two different stores around Tulsa).

    Re: What did you pass up today? Summer '13

    The OC 10 I've seen in a couple stores now - I don't know if I'd remember the names properly though (I've been through close to 20 stores in the past 48 hours - every time I get a break from the in-laws!) The 7 yr WSR was only in one store - I'm 85% sure I remember which one. I'll PM you that store. I've mapped them on Google, and think I drove by one that wasn't on my map (although it also had squat). Hoping to head out towards Bixby tonight or tomorrow.

    Today I passed on an Old Ezra 101 7 yr - not familiar with it, and didn't want it bad enough to check my bag over it. Not dusty in the least (2012 I think).

    The highest rye bourbon MGPI makes is 36%, so if the sign is to be believed it wouldn't be from them.

    They've been trying to move the 15yr around here for $60. No thanks.

    Gary, I'd bet those 375s are older and would go back for them. Were they age stated?
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Went to the liquor store today with a mean hangover. Everything looked gross. So I passed up everything

    What did you pass up today? Summer '13

    Craving bourbon after two weeks without any, but at $13 for a shot of Maker's and $10 for Jim Beam at the Miami airport, I can wait a few hours until I'm home.
