    I'm with you. Would have been an easy decision to pick this up at $60. I passed on it for $110.

    Yeah I passed on some THH and an ER17 both for $99.99. Also some JPS 21 in the $120-$140 range, it's probably right around msrp but I'm just not interested.

    Very Old Barton BIB for $15

    Honestly never seen this product before and didn't know we got it in Oregon...would've bought one but just got a bottle in trade with a fellow SBer. Well, at least I know where to find more if I like it!

    Also some age-stated WSR. It would have just made me want W12 more than I already do.

    Passed up some Weller 12, a woman came down the aisle and grabbed a bottle of the SR which was right next to it. I asked her if she ever tried the 12 and she replied that this was what her husband wanted and she NEVER drinks bourbon, OK then, at least I tried, just hoping hubby wasn't expecting the 12 cause he's in for a bit of a shock.

    That was neighborly of you but maybe she was doing it on purpose.

    Apparently the Climax "moonshine" made a big splash in Atlanta recently. Didn't really interest me at $25 (to be honest it didn't really interest me at all!). Apparently the guy from the show was in town promoting it wearing his overalls and hat from the show (sans shirt of course). Kind of sounded like it was an actor playing a part and that the whole thing was an effort on someones part to cash in on the current cache of the show and "moonshine" in general. I have never watched the show so maybe he is the real deal and just doesn't have a strong sense of fashion! I certainly don't know.

    Bottle says it is made in Lebanon, KY which makes me wonder if it is the same stuff coming out of the Limestone Branch micro distillery with a different label slapped on it. Although the website says it is corn, rye and barley with no sugar in it, unlike the Sugar Shine brand currently made at the distillery.

    In addition to the 90 proof basic stuff there will be a couple of 79 proof flavored varieties (grape and peach "lightning"). Although it sounds like a lot of the lightning is missing! Can hardly wait...

    The Flor de Cana 4yo at $10 a bottle had more appeal to me!
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    My local store just got another shipment of this in for $140. Seems nobody wants it...
