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

    Passed on the new Parker Heritage, saw one bottle in the store. Intrigued, but the reviews here have been all over. Normally that wouldn't scare me off, but $92 (yeah, I know some goes to ALS research) is a bit steep for a "maybe I'll like it" poke and hope bottle.

    Didn't pick up a bottle of EC21 for $140. That's way too steep for me to give it a try.

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

    Also passed on a true dusty. Have been keeping an eye out for the Old Forester Birthday Bourbon, haven't seen any around here yet, and went in a store I haven't tried for awhile. A 1.75 OF (86 proof) on the bottom shelf, was literally covered with a thick coat of dust. Anything special about an older version of this that would make it worth my while?

    Left tons of the new PHC behind today.

    Yeah, I saw quite a bit yesterday for $85-$89 and passed too. I would normally buy one to try, but I just couldn't do it. Especially after picking up a bottle and seeing how light the contents were. About the same color as EWSB.

    Tony, a paper label would be a good sign.

    Passed on the 4RBP at 108 proof...I'll stay with the KCSB 120 at about $15 less per bottle for now.

    Go back and buy it. A private selection low proofer FRBP is likely going to be a great pour.

    Thanks for the nudge... I will do so. I was in a hurry to get to a kids soccer game and was trying to talk myself into accepting that my bunker is already adequately stocked for the winter. I pretty much realized I needed to grab one before it is too late when I walked out. I ran into MyOldKyDram at the store and he gave me the same advice (while I had the darn thing in my hand)!

    Passed on PHC 7th for $110 (cheapest price in WA so far). Add sales tax and it would be $136 out the door. That's just approaching stupid.
