    What bourbon did you pass up today? Spring/Summer 2014

    Big box beverage store just put all four BTEC bottles on the shelf. I really wanted to buy the set, but at $80ea OTD for 375ml bottles, it was a little too experimental for my wallet.

    Bookers 25th. $125 just couldn't do it. Like the regular stuff but not enough to spend double for a special release. Just too much stuff I'd rather buy instead.

    Went to Sam's today with Mrs. Fox to resupply her wine stash, and was happily surprised to see more than the normal 2-3 bourbons on the shelf. They had KC, Booker's, BH, WT101, JB, MM, MM46, and a few others. Booker's was the only one priced like you would expect to see in a discount store like Sams though, at $43. Everything else I see locally for a few bucks less, so I passed on them all. Maybe the new Beam owners struck up a deal to sell their stuff at Sams finally...usually all I saw there was WT, WR, and JD.
    Think about how stupid the average person is.....then realize that half of them are more stupid than that.

    Only if you like Handy not because it is part of BTAC.

    Well, I haven't had it yet so I will probably pick it up sometime so I can say I've tried it.

    Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a Jefferson's Ocean for $185! Sadly, I think it's probably going to go at some point in the future.

    Looks like the Red River bourbon has joined the rapidly expanding ranks of the "craft whiskey" section in Georgia. I seem to recall this was one of the bourbons that was Texas in name only and sourced from somewhere else but could find a thread on SB.com with any info. In any case I passed.

    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…
