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

    Think I would go native and dive into the local Eau de Vies. They make some good ones there you can't get here without parting with an arm and a leg.

    I passed on a FR125 @ $143 and several Lock Stock for $120+. I may go back for the 125 eventually, but not for a couple months.

    Passed...barely...on this again today at same. Only seen 2-3 bottles over the dozen or so stores I visit weekly. Trying to resist....but, I'm beginning to have 2d thoughts/consideration on this one. Especially after reading more favorable reviews here lately.

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

    Several Jefferson's Reserve Very Old have started showing up in VA ABC as single barrel offerings. I've seen barrel B-64 and B-29. I passed on them just because I've never been the biggest Jefferson's fan. Anybody had any experience with their single barrels?

    Since its intro, I've not seen much EC21 at all. I'm not convinced it's moving at those kind of prices. The one I saw was alone on the shelf & the store owner said he wasn't going to carry "much stuff like that (EC21) because it just doesn't sell". Hmmmm

    That's because it hasn't been Bourdained.

    In addition to the high price, I am not certain that it fits the profile of the typical bourbon drinker or, even, bourbon enthusiast for that matter. I wonder how it compares to EC18.
