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

    Lock Stock & Barrel rye for $109. Price was good compared to other places I've seen it but I just couldn't bring myself to purchase until I see more reviews. At this point its still a $110 wild card that could be better spent on 3 bottles of Jeff10.

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

    I passed on those two new Beam products (12 yr and Spanish Brandy); however, they're intriguing enough to me that I'm sure I'll go back and get them eventually.

    Forgot this was the "passed" thread until your last sentence. The whole time I was cheering "yeah, yeah! Get it, man!"

    I walked on some Stagg Jr's at the local place today. Too rich for my blood at $60+tax.

    This store's single barrel rye selection is a 5 year. Not sure if it is barrel proof like the bourbon. Can't remember.

    Lock, Stock, and Barrel rye @ $109 and both of the new Jim Beam offerings. I did buy some Founders Breakfast Stout, so it wasn't a total waste of a trip.

    in LA for business, and found a store with a nice selection but high prices, not sure how much was California taxes and how much was markup...

    Passed up:

    Stagg JR at $80
    EC21 at $170
    EC20 at $150
    Parker Heritage at $165

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

    excited to find a Vintage 17 wheat version in the wild, was expecting a $90-100 price tag on it as it was a liquor store, not a chain store. Turns out I was way off... he had it marked at $169.99.

    That price is ludicrous for the V17. I feel like I overpaid for the one I had and it was only $63 at the time.
