    mix 10,12,15,20yr...prices were in line of 2011. Did not make it...Called my Backup and only got in 3 15yr, 2 10yr,
    2 20yr. SOLD out...I will stand in line for Black Friday....Not going to for Pappy...I was smart 3 yrs ago to buy
    as much as I could....(4)12, (6) 15 and (3) 20yr so Next Year maybe.

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

    Stopped by a place on my noon hour today. Decent if unspectacular selection, usually reasonable prices. Looked way up on top of the shelves where the regular stuff was for sale, and saw an ER17 and two other bottles behind it that looked like they could be BTAC. Got the guy to climb up on the ladder, sure enough it was a Saz18 and WLW. Asked what they wanted for them, he talked to his manager, said they weren't for sale and would eventually go behind the bar. The ER17 (they had more than one) was $189. I assume the other two would be similarly priced if they were actually for sale. An easy pass.

    So technically you didn't pass them up...they passed up you?

    GTS @$199, ho hum on this thread, but I'd never actually seen this first hand

    JPS21@$130, THH @$99...

    all at the same store, so I walked away from the "special case" and got the last Macallan CS off the shelf for $57.

    AECS. Couldn't pull the trigger. $150 is more than I've ever spent on a bottle and more than I'm going to spend on a bottle.

    I refuse to buy a bottle that costs as much as a case until someone can prove it tastes 12 times better.

    Those are the same bottles Tigerlam passed up last week. Ridiculous considering the ER17 there last year was at $100 (or $109, i dont recall exactly)

    I passed Rare Breed for $32.99. Nothing special and I am sure that it can occasionally be found cheaper. However, tomorrow is Turkey Day. I thought about buying but opted to same my $$. I have WT101 and WTR101 for tomorrow. I did pass on WTR101. The price was a little too high, $26.99.
