    Wow - more than double the retail for ECBP. I've seen BTAC marked up, but looks like they're catering to flippers rather than trying to keep a loyal customer base. Short-sighted IMO

    Yes, I don't understand how they're legally allowed to call themselves "Payless Liquors." I did take their 1.75 Weller Special Reserve off their hands for $30.

    just a question....

    in control states, are they even allowed to jack up prices like we are seeing on limited releases here, or do they HAVE to sell it at the state price?

    It depends which control state. Here in Utah the stores are operated by the state and the prices are the same at every store. In Michigan the stores are privately run, and the state only sets the minimum price.

    Here in Ohio, the price is set in stone by liquor control. You will see variation of price (usually pennies), because of different tax rates from county to county. The shelf price is the out the door price.

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

    Passed on some bottles of WTR101 for $21. I bought a case last year to feed my love for rye based cocktails, but I'm down to six or seven. Is the jury still out on whether or not this is coming back?

    Depends on who is on your jury . If Chuck C is your foreman then look for a return. Others are more pessimistic. Personally I grabbed a couple at $18 just in case.

    Until I joined the forum I always assumed states above the Mason/Dixon line were free wheeling but in actualality there is more control there than in the bible belt. Go figure.
