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

    Passed on Elijah Craig21, not sure what the price was and didn't want it so did not ask.

    Best regards, Tony

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

    I anyone is interested, the Beam maple has hit the shelves in the bluegrass. I also checked the EWSB at a local today and all their bottles were 10 yr old (dumped in 03/bottled in 13). They have removed the age statement, but I have yet to see one anywhere under 10 yrs old, and I check them regularly. Lastly, I noticed a marked price jump in the EC 12. Anyone else noticed? Remarkably, it is now running about $5 per more than the EWSB. Both are go to's, but a quality SB at $5 less per is a value that one cannot overlook.

    Prices following proof? That would be a disturbing trend.

    It very well may be Squire. I love EC12, but it is like a woman. Warm and cuddy today and cold and hateful tomorrow. The variances in the product are I guess what keeps me interested. I constantly go back to see what she looks and feels like today. I don't see that much variance in the EWSB. It is much more consistent. I think that is why some on here are seeing bottles that are well over 10 years old.?. Trying to hit the sweet spot with their flavor profile.?.

    On another note...saw AAA in the 750's today. I mistakenly believed that it was all gone (in this size) in my area. My best guess as to why it is still around is the ridiculous jump in pricing that I duly noted when passing it by.

    I also passed on some at $85.

    I haven't personally tried it, but have asked around and the general concensus is pass at that price.
