    But you bought a 9/103, right? I made the same choice...and am glad I did, as I just don't much care for the 9/103, and I imagine the 14 would have that same aftertaste.

    Sometimes I think they're just pulling these prices out of the air.

    I think it's coming from the air out of their butts. Sure does smell rotten.

    30 dollars a year for whisky they didn't even make. Let's try that Harry, some rube will buy it.

    Yes, I did but mainly out of concern that it might be a bit woody for my taste (rather than price) - so I opted for the 9 yr since I did see some positive reviews here. I might go for the 14 at some point, but it is one of those "wait to taste" or, like the 9, if I see some of the experienced palates here going for it, I'll go back for it. I love Dickel no. 12, but the standard Dickel Barrel Select I liked but didn't think it was worth the premium over the no. 12.

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

    called a local store that I have only been in once, walked out a few months back when I saw a THH for $159.99. When I called they said they have multiple of each bottle of PVW but the owner has not decided the price he wants to sell them for. I then asked if they had received any 4 roses 125ths, and he told me they got 6 bottles in and were selling for $89.99..... I got a huge smile on my face then he said they sold out a few days ago..... I almost started crying.

    Also passed on a PVW23 for $950.00

    Passed on two bottles of Michter's Celebration $3,800 each and a Hirsch Humidor at $1,300. There was a fair amount of dust on that Humidor.

    PHC POH x 2 @ 99.99. I'm getting more and more tempted to grab these. Another friend told me it's "really good". But seems pretty pricey for a 10yr old bourbon...for a good cause.

    I think the aftertaste was the best part of the 9/103.

    on a side note though, I have enjoyed it so much that I've been enjoying small sips of it here and there to prolong it. I have noticed though that air time is not helping it. As the fill level is dwindling, the wonderful aftertaste seems to be falling apart to me. My next bottle of it I will immediately parcel into empty 200ml bottles to prevent this. enjoy!
