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

    I keep passing on PCH 7s but it's always a tough choice. On the one hand, I really do like them and they obviously won't be around forever. On the other, it's a bit pricey for what's in the bottle (and yeah, I know, $20 is for a good cause). If it was $80 out the door it'd be an easier decision, but it's $100 out here.

    Subtracting the $20 for charity it's still $40-$50 over priced :\

    I just wish it was barrel proof, or had a unique finish, or was another blend of mash bills, or SOMETHING that could help me justify the price a bit easier. But when I see this on the shelf next to a private selection FRSB, the latter wins every time.

    Passed on some of that bizarre labeling Henry McKenna BiB. One of these days I'll grab one and try it.

    I thought it sounded like a ripoff until I noticed a 1792 RR was included. how many can I buy at this price?!

    Don't tell anyone, but they had a few singles on the shelf for 22.99 a piece.

    If it said one of each plus thirteen 6 bottle cases of RR 1792 then you might have something...
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Yeah, you would have some good whisky from Barton and a bunch of other crap to sell.

    That has to be some of the most bizarre marketing I've ever seen. It's almost so absurd, I can barely make fun of it.
