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

    In no particular order:
    - Jack Daniels Holiday Select '12. I'm not really a JD guy, and was floored by the $99 price.
    - Willet 21 yr, w/Purple wax. The store had a different 21yr to sample...couldn't take the $155 chance on the different batches.
    - OFBB, stuff is everywhere but i expect not long. I already have 1 with another on the way...no need to hog!

It's a shame, as SV has always been a great resource for the more limited releases, but they have ridden the wave of significantly higher prices recently. I bit on the ECBP a few months ago at $50, but that was easier to stomach.
    Agree - if they are attempting to keep that profile consistent, it is a pass @ $40 never mind $60.

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

    Passed on EC21 at two different stores for $140 just sitting out on the shelf, BMH for a little less than expected at $50 and tons of "Un"Forgiven also at $50 (along with a rather nasty sounding WT "Spiced" Bourbon sitting next to it which I didn't notice until I got home).

    I thought the same at the sight of the "spiced" WT. Looks ugly, and doesn't sound much better

    Shoulda grabbed it though because it doesn't hit retail shelves until mid-September. So sayeth the clerk at the WT gift shop today, at any rate.

    I certainly can't blame them for providing what the customers want. Restaurants fail all the time when a new chef insists on imposing his 'vision' on his customers.

    That Stagg Jr is crazy. They must have thought it is the regular GTS I bet and didn't correct themselves upon received.

    My contact thought it was the regular GTS too until he picked them up then realize it is different.
