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

    Just for the sake of future friends and even mourners, if nothing else, buy more!

    Oh, and uh, I saw Rhetoric in Maui, price wasn't listed, but I passed anyway. Asked to see the WTRB in the cabinet, but unboxed it was the 03 batch. Haven't seen the new batch, yet.

    Go get it Vosgar. Fox is correct... the price is right and they won't make any more of it (well under that name at least).

    I've been paying mid $40's (per handle) in KY since learning of its demise and sadly, KY is pretty much picked out.

    Barterhouse. You know this stuff isn't moving when my local bottle shop (known for $20-$30 markup above MSRP on limited release bourbons, but actually willing to hold said bourbons for me) marked it down to MSRP and moved it onto the mid shelf. Heck, the top shelf even has Sinatra Select on it.

    I have to hand it to Diageo: The Orphan Barrel releases (perfectly serviceable and relatively fairly priced at MSRP, just not spectacular to my taste) were what snapped me out of my brief limited edition mania. They actually did me a huge favor. It's nice to be able to pull out a bottle of something special to share with friends, but I already have a few of those put away. No need for much more.

    passed a THH (rye, I know) in Manhattan. I stared at it for about a minute.
    I think it was at the wine store in Chelsea Market. Don't know the price; it was in a locked room/case.

    I did not enjoy my bottle, it was used to make cocktails until it was happily gone.

    Same here. Just way overpriced for the taste.

    Stagg Jr. 134.4; I was curious but left them on the shelf as they were priced 129.99.

    I was even less willing to purchase the James Pepper 1776 15 year at $149.99

    I passed on some Stagg Jr. as well, but it was $49.

    Another vote for nothing special. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it, either.

    Mr C said it was good whiskey, but hey we've all got different tastes.
