    What bourbon did you pass up today? Winter '13/'14

    To keep in line with the other threads, starting this one up for the Winter.

    While out grabbing some Christmas refreshments, passed on some non age stated VOB BiB. First time I've actually noticed this in the store. Probably wouldn't even have noticed unless it was pointed out.

    Also passed on some AE rye at $80 and some EH Taylor Small Batch at $47.

    Too much it feels like... ugh. Over the past few weeks I've passed up all the Jefferson's 25 and 30, some Dickel 9 and Angel's Envy Cask Strength. Not even room or reason to spend I guess.

    Passed on Jeffersons Bourbon 21 and Rye 21. Also the 25 year as well. Just too expensive to pull the trigger. I have a self instituted $100 limit on a bottle.

    The Rittenhouse is not that far over retail,the 23 was $179 and 25 $199 I believe at retail when they were released,so you decide they are both great whiskies but I would give the nod to the 23yr of the ones I've had in the past.

    I was going to shoot for the 23 from what I read. They had one 25 and 3 of the 23 and been there a couple years. I'll be going back. Thanks!
