I've passed so far a store has "Pappy Van Winkle Christmas Gift Pack has just been released. It includes Pappy(really ORVW) 10 year old, Eagle Rare Single Barrel, Buffalo Trace, & Corner Creek Reserve. Gift Pack price $200. Very Limited Quantities" except there's no Pappy in the package. Total Msrp retail is $125.96. To add insult to injury ERSB, BT, CCR are all on sale the next state over. So the bottle of ORVW 10 is $124.03 3 times the price not surprised just dissappointing
In Society that Outlaws Adventure the Only Adventure is to Outlaw that Society
Most gift sets Ive seen have been the same price as a regular bottle itself, but come with two free tumbler glasses.
Why anyone would pay that for the Beam package, when all 4 of those are easily available individually for $100 less, I dont know. But, someone will do it.
On the way home I stopped to look for something and didnt find it, but I did notice most everything was on sale. Dickel 12 for $20, and HH Gold for $9, both a buck off normal price. plus a 10% discount if you buy 6 of anything. I may be back soon...
Visiting Idaho for work (the high was 10 deg F today) and passed on 3 bottles of ECBP batch 3 for $41 a piece. Still have half a bottle of batch 1, a whole bottle of batch 2 and a gift shop bottle. Had a friend help talk me out of it even though it was a good price.
Gotta do what you gotta do. Hopefully passing on it counts towards the ol' karma bank!
