    It is no secret that I love that elixir of the gods, bourbon.

    THH @$109, JPS18 @ $129, EH taylor single Barrel ( have not heard much good about the entire EH line), BT single oak and BT experimental. I also saw some Hirsch 20 yr. American whiskey for $80 or $90 but again I have heard it just is not that good.

    The EH Taylor and Hirsch are both sitting at my local store for the same prices and nobody seems to want them. The Hirsch has been on the shelf for 2-3 months now. A friend bought the Taylor and really liked it, though.

    You would go from curious to pissed off after about 10 seconds into your first pour,wise decision on both of those
    I found the Rice to be decent if unremarkable. Oats was pretty bad. Neither worth the price other than to taste the experiments. Some are good and some are bad but hard to know unless you get to try it for yourself.

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

    Passed through the store with the grossly overpriced Handy again today. So odd since they have a number of bottles which are priced at or below other local stores.

    It is also very sad. There were 11 bottles on the shelf from at least 2 different years! No telling how many more might be tucked away elsewhere. A shame to see such fine whiskey not being enjoyed but I certainly won't pay that for 6yo CS whiskey that realistically is already overpriced at retail cost.

    Checked on the 25yo Hirsch Rye I saw last week but apparently all they have is the 25yo (At least as far as they seem to know. Doesn't seem to be the most organized of operations) so I passed on it. Was hoping to find a 21 or 22.

    Also saw these Hirsch 20yo American whiskeys finished in used barrels (not A.H. Hirsch of course). Didn't know much about them so passed for now at $80. I seem to recall it was not particularly well thought of and certainly not at that price. Also saw the Michter's 10yo mystery rye which there have been a few good reports about on here recently but didn't have much interest at $72 even though that seems to be lower than some internet prices I have seen. Do we know where the heck this comes from??? It is the one bottle I am wondering if I should have picked up.

    Wow - that is sad. I love THH, but at triple the price - that's crazy. Must just like saying they have it on the shelves.

    I passed up on the Hirsch 25 year for $220. If anyone is around Augusta, GA and is interested, PM me. I couldn't bite on it since I don't know much about it. The Anchor Distilling website doesn't even have it listed.

    According to this Board and other Internet sources the original M10 rye was the Cream of Kentucky rye (Same as Saz18 and others) This could be some new (Canadian) source like the Jeff or WP. If it says distilled in Ky I'd grab it. If its the old stuff that's a great price.

    Also you might PM Chainwhip if he doesn't chime in here. He's pretty up on the older ryes.

    I'll have to defer to Will, Kaveh, & others here on SB as everything I've learned is from them and others here...
