    The best price I have seen. Always at least $89.99.

    For that price, definitely a good buy at that price and a good pour.

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

    Last night, passed on OCPR for $129.99 and a '93 EWSB for $29.99. The EW was reasonable given its age, but I still have a bottle of that year. I don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon if I change my mind. The OC, however, broke my heart. Would love to bunker another one of those but not at that price.

    Multiple batches of PHC 6th,Stagg Jr. and some Beam decanters from the late 80's into the early 90's all waaaay over priced!

    These bottles were missing the neck label...so, no info on barrel numbers. They were sitting around at an out-of-the-way store and I figure they've been there for at least 3-4 years...I don't think the owners knew that the current pricing had increased on these.

    Had to pass on some Parker's heritage promise of hope yesterday. Had already pulled the trigger on some Lot B and PVWFRR, one of which I also left behind for, you know, karma and stuff.

    Got a lead on a FR LESmB, called the store and they said they'd hold it for me...at $199.99. As much as I want it, that's just ridiculous.

    I wouldn't be surprised if those merchants on ws.com got their pricing from BX.
    Wine searcher is not as bad as the online bourbon sources. I'm looking at a few high end wines on there and they are showing prices cheaper than I can buy them wholesale.

    It may be good for wine, but the bourbon prices are way out of whack. Look up PVW15, it's not showing up at $80 like it should be. It's $600-$3500 on that site. Four Roses LE Small Batch is showing up at $285.

    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Gotcha. Never searched for bourbon on it.

    Even limited production wines are relatively easy to get online. The bourbon and wine games have similarities but supply is a different ballgame. you have 7 or 8 main producers for bourbon vs tens of thousands for wine.
