    What Bourbon did you pass up today? Fall '13

    Football season, leaves changing color, crisp clear days*and leaving overpriced/bad bourbon on the shelves. I'm passing on most things now to prepare for the limited release season.

    Michters 10 year. $90.00 and the neck tag was gone so I couldn't see the batch. I still have a nearly full bottle at the house so I passed.

    The same nine bottles of WT Forgiven for $104.99. I figured she'll probably end up selling them but it won't be to a SB member.

    Thats crazy, even here in Oz its retailing for $89 which I passed up on today, it was next to the RB which was $15 cheaper and had a chuckle to myself - no way am i buying the forgiven in a million years.
    Also passed up on the WT spiced? WTF is this shit? Is "spiced" booze the new "honey"

    The spice wagon rolls around ever so often offering the next new permanent thing but is a disillusionment in an impermanent world.

    Re: What Bourbon did you pass up today? Fall '13

    Passed on these today:

    - tons of Forgiven, just not interested

    -W12 $39.96 for a 750ml, just $15 too much

    -ECBP 137 $42.99, already have a couple bottles, thanks to a generous SBer

    -OFBB, $52.99, if it would've been 10 bucks cheaper I might have snagged a couple

    -PHC 7, I understand the significance of this bottling, and I loves me some PHC, but I just couldn't talk myself into popping a hundo for this one

    Passed on EC21. Price was "fair" but I'm not convinced I want one just yet. I imagine I'll have a slightly longer than normal window to change my mind.
