    I'm okay with low proofers as long as they're priced like low proofers. E.g. EWSB is only $19.99 here and that's a perfectly respectable price for an 86 proof bourbon. But for the premium Angel's Envy charges, no way is that low of a proof acceptable.

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

    Passed up $75 stagg jr and $50 baby saz. A shame really, that particular store hasn't marked up like that before. Bought 3 bottles of stagg jr 2 weeks ago at $49 each, and most other stores in my area that sell baby saz let it go for 25-30.

    Asked around alot about btac releases and mostly drew blank looks...

    Passed up the Knob Creek maple smoked. I have read several positive reviews, but not sure if ready for a whole bottle of flavored bourbon/whiskey. I have sampled Jack Daniels honey and Red Stag cherry, but just 50ml sample bottles. Picked up a bottle of Eagle Rare instead. Have not tried. Read many good reviews.

    Passed on a Stagg Jr. priced at $159. Maybe the store owner thought he had the BTAC GTS? A few other local stores have sold through their Stagg Jr. at no higher than $50/bottle..

    You are probably right. I think the guy that had the 4RSB for $120 thought it was the LE.

    Hirsch humidor edition for $1350. Was tempted to ask the staff of this store what they knew about it for kicks.
