    While there is a lot of psychology going on when you cross that threshold, whatever level it may be, it's hard, and you wonder about its worth.

    It's like love, some people say they don't get it, but then they get smacked by it, and never are the same again.

    The first time I had a Hirsch rye some time ago, my mind, and taste buds were forever changed.

    Yah, it's worth it, there just is nothing even close to some of these.

    I swear, you all are trying to do me in!! Between the post and texting, the weakness is starting to creep in more.....

    But, on the other hand, if I did give, in, I know where there is some 23 and 25 to complete a set. For some reason, I have a real fetish about having these in a set. Just seems wrong to have the odd man out so to speak.

    GTS for $139. Last time I bought it (2009 4 bottles) I believe it was $70 so I could not justify Double the price when I still have 1/2 a bottle of the 2009.

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

    While stopping in a store 5 min before closing in Dallas, I had to do a double-take on Ancient Age Preferred. Had never seen it before and got excited! Then disappointed when I realized that a handle wouldn't be a good fit in my carry-on (even if I checked it). Then not-so-disappointed when I realized it is a blended whiskey anyway

    Wow - definitely glad I didn't mess with trying to bring a handle back! Joe's fireplace might have blown up!

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

    Yesterday I passed on Jesse James Bourbon. What is it with all the dang NDP stuff everywhere nowadays? I also passed on: Stetson, Lexington, Breakout, Bighouse, several others, and stuff with honey added to it. Come on people, this is all wasting valuable shelf space.
