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

    Passed Handy for $75. I hate finding Handy, it means I wasn't too far off from finding the good stuff. At least I got an Ealanta today!

    Not something I could've passed on myself...

    I don't know. I've seen some Handys hang around for months.

    Passed on the new Jefferson's, a FR 2013 SB LE, some age stated VOB 80 and 86. Didn't "pass" but was denied the ability to purchase some ORVW ($40) and Lot B ($55) even though it was displayed with a price tag.

    Really couldn't tell you. Looked around a bit, asked about the VW and got told they couldn't (wouldn't) sell them outright and that there was a "lottery" for people who purchased other bottles. Truth be told, I'm in that area 4-6 times a year, but even so, I have no interest in playing those kinds of games. There were 6-8 bottles of each with a price tag on them, and I would have been happy to purchase then and there. No need for the song and dance.

    Me too...saw the last handy in my favorite local store...$69.99...I hated to pass but had too. Already spent more on Christmas gifts than I should have. Oh well.

    Don't put it on the shelf if it isn't for sale. Pretty simple.

    Actually had the 1.75 of Weller 12 ($38) in my hands as I walked to the other side of the store to get my wife's wine. On my way back to the check-out, I put the W12 back, and instead picked out a Wiser's Legacy (also $38--but for a 750). I've never tried the Legacy, but dimly recall good things. Plus, that Weller 12 will always be there, right...?
