Browsed a local shop which had everything marked up quite a bit. I was very amused by JPS21 at $250 and Michter's 10 for $150.
Fresh case of OFBB13. Just not interested
Passed on Wathan's, Old Medley, Hirsch Small Batch. The NDP parade. (After I bit on a Willett FE so they still got me.)

I passed on Four Roses single barrel selections OBSK, and OESF for $50, and OFBB 2013 for $47. I already have a FRSB 2013 LE open that is OBSK. To me it's just ok. I've tried several years of OFBB in the past. Honestly, I think I much prefer Signature, regardless of price. I think one day I'll try a Four Roses OE mashbill just to satisfy my curiousity. To me the OB mashbills I've tried (OBSV and OBSK) taste like drier versions of Wild Turkey Rare Breed.
Jefferson's Chef's Collaboration, a bourbon-rye mingling, a la Bourye, 44.99. I was intrigued, but I passed for now.

I also heard that retail was supposed to be closer to $39.99. I would pay that.
Any idea on age statement? Last time I talked to Trey it came up, but that was a year ago and I have forgotten.
I have a couple OB (high rye) . I like the OBSK (2013 SiB LE, $85) but not as much as the OBSF (distillery private selection, $60).
If I lived near the distillery, I'd be very happy with buying their OE private selections all day long. ;-)
I am also a fan of OF Signature. Until I had regular access to the Weller line, OFS was my daily pour. The OFBBs don't thrill me, but I gotta admit, the reviews made me trade for an OFBB 2013. I haven't opened it yet though.
