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

    I passed on a bottle of George T. Stagg for $199, along with a Willet Family Estate Reserve 10 year for $80. Not a bad price for the Willet FE, but research about the barrel # didn't turn up anything and I didn't want to risk getting an "ok" bottle.

    Saw this oddity in a store today. Don't know much about it but didn't feel compelled to pick it up and the $37 price tag didn't help.

    id have told them the decimal was in the wrong spot, and left. whiskey snobs, they can keep their pappy! is it better than my OGD 114? maybe, but thats subjective......plus, even if it is, is it 15 to 80x better? fuck no!




    we were having lots of people over for a cookout and games and the wife and i made a liquor run. she loaded up on wine, but ill be damned if i could find a single thing on the shelf i wanted to try. i rarely am willing to pay over $30 for anything. i was looking to grab an EB 7/101 to try, but of the two places we went, neither had it. there was an EB 12/99, but even at the sale price of $36, i wasnt willing to take a chance on it. i am still regretting the $30 i spent on the 4R Single barrel. Lots of people like it, but not me. I wish everything was offered in a 50 or 100mL size.......id be more willing to experiment with a wider range or bourbons.

    Haha...The name Yahara Bay makes me think of Madison, Wisconsin.

    Which is where the distillery is located.

    http://www.yaharabay.com/

    The website, like many of them, is not all that useful.

    Yeah, I just found it to be an odd name for a distillery in Wisconsin. When I read Yahara Bay, it conjures up imagines of some exotic locale. Not that Madison, Wisconsin (or 'sconsin') can't be exotic at times.
