    Re: What rye did you purchase today? Spring/Summer 2014

    Actually, I think I am having regrets. I think I will return it.

    I also impulse grabbed one of the 18th cent Potreros when they first came out. Don't regret doing it but haven't purchased another.

    Usually when I pick up something that I waver on (more because of cost), I just suck it up and keep it, enjoy it, and based on price don't get it again. We all have "regret" purchases but unless you are truly ruminating about it, I would just enjoy it and chalk it up to impulse.

    I was very close to giving in to that rationalization but then realized that its a lot of money that could go towards something I really want. If my budget was unlimited, I would have kept it for sure.

    Yeah, practical takes precedence over impulse. I know. I often pass on things that I would love to buy but my budget says no.

    A couple bottles of Leopold Maryland Style Rye to celebrate the birth of my second son, named Leopold.

    It's in the mail. Can't wait to try it

    Congratulations to you on your new addition! Nice way to commemorate his arrival, too! It's a nice rye, and carries the Leopold house style very well. I'm sure you'll enjoy it, particularly with it's meaning to you.

    Congratulations!!! That's a pretty cool idea! Now are these for drinking, or does he get one when he's of age?

    I bought two of the rye and two of the American small batch whiskey. One for drinking now of each and one for cellaring.
