    There were no extras. The same store posted a charity auction for a bottle of PVW23 $600 it's for a charity so it's not really horrible. In the auction they list the retail price as priceless. :P

    I would too. I've never had it, but even if I didn't like it, they'd make great holiday gifts!

    Passed up a bottle of Wisers. It said Rye, blended canadian whisky on the label so not sure exactly what it was. Looked at their website and didn't see that particular bottle so have no information on it. Its 80pr and about $25. Anybody have info on it? Sorry forgot to get a pic while at the store.

    Ok. The store was a hole in the wall place so I didn't know if this was a dusty, good, bad. I don't see Wiser's around here that often.

    Tasted at our store a few weeks back. Dreadful stuff with no redeeming qualities. We passed on stocking despite heavy pressure from our distributor rep.

    Passed the same thing here, never recall seeing it before...$24 here. Maybe it's been there...but I'm not in the Canadian section very often.

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

    Walked into a store I normally frequent coincidentally right when they are unloading their PVW stock. I got 2 15s and 2 20s last year at reasonable prices ($100 & $150). This year they said I could choose 1 so that they could spread it around more which is reasonable. They told me the price of the 20 with a straight face was $400 because of "prices increases", I kind of chuckled and walked out. Won't be back there anytime soon.

    It doesn't always pay-off to have a good relationship with a store manager when they try and screw you in the end.
