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

    Oh, and to answer your other question, I am a member of BX, but have never actually bought or sold anything there, and have not had any dealings with this person.

    I totally understand what you're saying Joe, that has been my experience as well. I too, was contacted about the '13 FR LE SmB, same price as Cigar Dan quoted. I had posted a couple days ago that I was looking for a bottle or 2. In all honesty, I was not offended, its his, and he gave me his price point. I passed, but don't begrudge him, he owes me nothing.

    I'm not angry at the guy. I just told him that he was new here (joined last month), and things didn't work on SB the same as on BX.

    Was out and about and came across 3 bottles of 2013 OFBB for $49.99 but didn't pull the trigger, for now : )

    Well, on the one hand - letting you all know might keep the fair-minded members from abetting his profiteering ways. On the other hand, the person is new here and may not realize the gentleman's forum we have here, where sharing (stories, information and our own good cheer) is the be-all and end-all.

    Funny thing tho, I was offered a bottle for a third less on BX.

    Agree, a pass is the gentlemanly thing to do here. But, the egregious error of his ways should not be repeated.

    I'm not asking for his name but am asking if he has been posting because if not he may have joined just to sell.

    We appreciate everyone's help in policing the boards here as we all know that there's a very strong sense of community among SB'ers.

    If you receive any private messages that you believe violate the Straightbourbon terms of service agreement, please bring it to the attention of a staff member via PM and we will handle it privately.

    Calling out folks in the forums will cause more problems than solutions.

    Thanks for your help.

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

    I stumbled across 5 bottles of E H Taylor Warehouse C Tornado Surviving last week while I was visiting friends in MA. They were priced at $67 and the guy working at the store had no idea what he had when I mentioned that I was surprised to see them, granted it was more of a wine store. If I didn't already have an unopened bottle at home I definitely would have snapped one up.

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

    I left 4 2013 Staggs ($99 each) and 1 2013 WLW ($90) on the shelf, I only bought 2 of each for myself. However, I'm back down by the store again today so if they are still there...

    Crap, if they are still there I may have to get one more stagg, then I have no idea how I'm going to fit 8 full size and 4 200ml bottles in my checked bag.
