    They got a phrase for short sighted price gouging business owners . . . bankrupt.

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

    THH @ $90...I guess I bought "in" so often in the $45-65 range that the trigger & finger are now permanently broken on this one. The clerk said I "missed" the Stagg. They got 3 & one guy bought them all at $100 each. My cold reply was "oh, I'll be losing sleep over that one tonite"...lol.

    On a more ridiculous note, I passed up a Ritt BIB tagged $50. I gotta believe though, at some point in time, an adrenaline-pumped idiot will get a fever for rye - any rye - and pay it...lol.

    Passed on OFBB '11 for $55 (I'm sure many of you saw the email offer). Tough to spend money on bourbon when I'm sick, since none of it sounds good.

    I was going to get a bottle of this year's EWSB along with something else I was picking up but decided against it. Not for lack of interest in it, but more of a lack of funds.

    Crap. I just about sprayed my Ritt all over the living room. Although, I think Ritt BiB at $50 is a better deal than CEHT rye for $129.99. Neither are deals, but if those were the last choices and I had to have one I'm bringing the Ritt home :-)

    Fortunately for all of us, that's been the sole exception I've come across while wandering around of late. Anywhere else saw it, the price range was a much more reasonable $21-25....although, I sure miss those days when it was $14-16
