for a bottle, that is.
Thinking about Brad's $100+ Hancock's (which he didn't buy) and the thread about big disappointments got me to wondering how often and by how much we overpay for whiskey.
I know a lot of my purchases have been bargains since they were old and dusty and priced as they were in the 70s or 80s. But I also know that the first time I bought KC several years ago, I didn't know enough to price liquor stores out around here, and I wound up paying $42.99 for a fifth. I know buy it for $23.99.
I know some guys have high prices set by state liquor boards, or just live in areas with higher liquor prices (not to mention the hard-to-find eBay purchases we may have made), so it's all relative. But what's the most you've overpaid for a fifth of whiskey?
