    I've had some WFE's that were very tasty..but the price of the 12yr makes a FR 11yr private selection an absolute steal at $50

    ETA: and it's been over a year ago or more since they first picked these barrels.
    I will be speaking with willett next week to determine pricing on our barrels. It sounds crazy high. I remember seeing a 21 year willett at LB in 2012 for $150.

    I bought two 10 yrs for $65 ea. at the beginning of '14 and the store owner told me they just sold a 20 yr for $150 the day before. So yea....market prices. The 20 had been on the shelf for several months.

    Old blowhard at $180. Just too much money and hype.

    Passed up a Smooth Ambler Old Scout 10 ($39), and a Bowman Brothers ($29) and John J. Bowman($49)....

    The prices seemed good but I don't know enough about them to pull the trigger (I was already getting some ER and ETL!)

    Any word on the 3 I passed up? I might go back next week.

    All three are good prices. I would probably jump on the SAOS 10 at $39. I have never had Bowman Small Batch. I paid a little over $50 for a bottle of JJB. There are other SB offerings I prefer at a much lower price.

    Walked by a couple of pallets worth of CEHT Rye at ~$60 at Costco. Too rich for me....

    Thought of my buddy Fishnbowljoe (aka The Weller whore) when I passed these up: WSR @ $29.99, OWA @ $39.99 and W12 for $49.99. No surprise that with those prices their shelves were fully stocked at 9pm on a Saturday night
