    Re: What bourbon did you pass up today? Spring 2014

    yeah, Ive only seen it on a shelf once, and it was $79.99. I tried it at a restaurant once, and liked it fairly well, but $80 is damn near two Dickel 9's, so I dont see myself bringing any home. That said though, if I were into 20 year old whiskies, $80 is a steal these days. But, it doesnt taste 20 years old either...
    Think about how stupid the average person is.....then realize that half of them are more stupid than that.

    Also I've passed over Barterhouse so many times now, it's laughable. There are now a dozen bottles sitting at MSRP at my grocery store. Maybe in 5-6 months they'll knock 30% off.
    That seems like a good price, as Doug noted. Maybe after trying this, folks have decided to wait on the next batch of orphans to show up.

    Yeah, I have also passed on Barterhouse numerous times. The price is typically $79.99 but I have seen higher. Much like Doug, I can get a favorite or two for the same price so the pass is easy.

    I did pass on ETL Comm in Fort Wayne. I wish all single barrel offerings would include a barrel number so you could determine whether it was a barrel you like. I opened a recent ETL Comm and I love it! I would buy a few more of the same barrel if I could find them.

    I too, have passed on it numerous times. And from what I've read here, seems to be a decent pour for an extra aged whiskey. All the hokiness aside, I also think it is fairly priced. But each time I'm about to pull the trigger, I think I could buy these instead for the same 80 buckaroos:

    -8 bottles of HH BIB 6yr
    -4 family sized bottles of MC
    -almost 3 bottles of FRSB
    -3 bottles of OWA SB, and still put some change in my pocket

    etc, etc, etc....

    due to price, or taste?

    3 ECBP batch #4 i believe. Have batch #2 & #3 open and a few already in the bunker so decided to pass at $50. Silver lining was that this was at one of my local grocery stores and i was totally surprised to even see it there, so hopefully it's a sign of good things to come for their selection.

    So I dodged a bullet when they were out of stock last month when I stopped by. Duly noted.

    Passed on several varieties offered by OYO (I think that's pronounced OH-Why-Oh) Distillery.
    Too much cheese for another 'new' whiskey from another 'new' distiller.
