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

    Can't touch the above but...
    EC 18 at $100
    ECBP at $129

    after I saw those prices I didn't even bother asking about their other goodies (stagg jr, PHC, 4R1B LE, and some others I didn't look closely at)

    sadly this was a store that's gotten good recs on here in the past...

    Everyone wants their piece of the pie, I guess. Hard to blame them because stuff like that gets purchased/flipped anyway. Perhaps not quite at those prices but they're only askin'. Still, sucks to see.

    I love how you get a discount of -300% for buying a bulk

    My guess is he's got a stock of 1792 that hasn't been moving so, by association . . .

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.
    I had the same thing this year, was rather disappointing. Had my pick of whatever I wanted in the past, guess all good things come to an end at some point.

    I still have my pick of whatever I want since I can only chose from what's on the shelves.

    Can only say I thought the ER17 (19yo in reality) was really good this year. If it was close to retail I wouldn't have hesitated to add that one despite the lower proof compared to GTS and WLW.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…
