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

    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.

    Passed on Wathan's, Old Medley, Hirsch Small Batch. The NDP parade. (After I bit on a Willett FE so they still got me.)

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

    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've been on the lookout for this for quite some time. Mind sharing where you saw it? Ed Lee is a pretty intriguing guy.

    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.

    This was at a large retailer in MA, they got in 5 cases, and it's NAS, but supposedly there is some 14 yr old in the mix. If you continue to have problems finding it, PM me.

    I am a big fan of OE (low rye mash bill). It's hard to keep my hands off the OEs, but I gotta make them last. The OEs I have are OESQ (distillery private selection, $60) and OESK (2012 SiB LE, $70).

    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.
