    Here's hoping it is a shelf below CETH because at their new prices they don't taste quite as good to me.

    Re: New Barton Bourbons

    I know a guy that puts up a large 'Special' sign on the flavored stuff that isn't moving. Doesn't change the price, just puts it on special.

    Sort of like the "going out of business" signs in Times Square which started in the '60's?

    Re: New Barton Bourbons

    Banker client of mine once asked difference between going out of business sale and liquidation sale. I told him going out of business sale happens every year.

    We have been known to put keep clearance item on regular shelf marked sale. And we have put regularly priced items on clearance shelf to get them to sell.

    Barton was making a wheated bourbon before Sazerac bought them and it was described (by Barton) as "ready for release". I interpretted that to mean 4-5 years old. I got to taste it and it was quite good. (I posted about it here.) Happy to see that it is finally going to be released.
