    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.

    You do know that the 8 yr you sampled may very well be nothing like the one you eventually find in the store, right? Just checking.

    Eagle Rare 10 year old on a shelf in a restaurant espresso bar in Sicily. I saw it on the way out. No chance for a taste. Sorry for the shakey picture, but it gives you the idea.
