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

    Passed on AE Cask Strength and PHC. I think they are pumping out tons and tons of bottles of PHC taking advantage of the bourbon hype with $100 10yo whiskey. It's the "limited" edition that never ends.

    I've seen it reappear on one shelf out here, which I thought was strange... I do like it, though.

    $100 on the PHC is excessive mark-up at your retailer or Distributor. IMO, this is extremely good whiskey that goes beyond an age statement, good cause, and limited availability.

    The Jeff 21 rye at $125 is probably the low end of the scale I have seen. That said it is mystery whiskey at relatively low proof and it is hard to justify that much without at least a chance to try it first. That said I took a chance on a bottle and liked it. Would be interesting to compare it to some of the other older ryes. Now I just have to get some! But they will likely cost as much or more unless you happen to stumble on one still going for the original retail price.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Left a stack of Stagg Jr on the shelf for $52. Also walked right past a Pappy raffle without even putting my name in it.

    Here's a joke:

    A man walks in to a liquor store and sees THH for $400 and Stagg for $330.

    That was as easy a 'pass' as I've ever made.

    The liquor store owner says, "You'd pass on Stagg when it's $70 cheaper than Handy?! You're nuts!"

    I'd tell him not only will I be passing on that, but I'll be passing by your store from now on on my way to a respectable liquor store....
