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

    Well, not today, but I did pass these up at K&L back in 2003.

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

    Nice LB. Notice how only the "premiums" have skyrocketed in price while the others have not really changed in price? And the premiums arguably had much better whiskey in them at that time as well. Funny how that works.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Thanks for that timeline snapshot LB, interesting that Sazerac sold for more than Van Winkle but 18 year old whisky has got to be better than 15 year old stuff, right?

    Private Barrel selection of Eagle Rare at $24.99 (good price as far as I'm concerned), OBSV private selection at $34.99, Black Maple Hill (I am a fan even though it is getting hammered in the BMH thread) at $60

    I'd thought briefly about a bottle of EH Taylor Single Barrel. I really enjoy the EHT Small Batch I've got open at the moment...

    I know Renegator has both of these open and I believe he prefers the small batch. For $20-$30 cheaper that may be the way to go. I do really enjoy the small batch and the barrel proof as well (both are open on my bar right now). I am hunting for the Tornado as I have had a couple pours of that and love it...no luck so far though

    I do prefer the small batch. To me - it's woodier than the single barrel which is what I prefer. Added bonus that it is $20-$30 cheaper than the single barrel. Both are great pours, though.

    Thanks for sharing! I'll try it eventually.
