    Passed up innumerable sourced whiskeys today. It's difficult to keep track of what's what anymore.

    Passed up a Hirsch 25 year rye ($219).

    I passed up hirsch 25 year rye at $210 recently as well. I've never tried it. So, it's still kind of on my mind whether I should go back to get it.

    That's why I stick to rye, Tucker. I really only have to keep track of 2 sources (Canada and Indiana) and I already know what they taste like without ever having to open the bottle.

    Old and high priced only means it's old and high priced.

    And if it's that good, being sourced, why did the distillery sell it in the first place instead of bottling it themselves.

    I always picture a marketing meeting with a guy shouting like those used car ads "with barrels this great, we have to give it way!"

    I picture a meeting at the distillery where someone asks 'so what are we gonna do with these barrels of crappy old woody whisky'.
