Passed on OGD 114 for $20. Only temporarily though, I will definitely grab a couple before the month ends.

Left about 6 HW A Midwinters Night Dram on the shelf. Act 2-3 for those keeping track at home.

Parker's Heritage Promise of Hope for $99.99. The price isn't bad but I am not in the market for it. If any Indy area folks are interested in the location, I can share via PM.

Passed in a Bookers 25th in favor of a WT Diamond #mistake....

I agree with the #mistake. My guy at my bottle shop said he would call me when it went 50% off.

Going to give a shot at exchanging it tomorrow. May not work but at least I will

Have tried.

Why do you call it a mistake?

After pouring a WT101 and WTRB tonight and not enjoying either I'm expecting I wouldn't like the Diamond either. I know I like the Bookers profile OTOH.

Passed on ETL today while out searching for BTAC. It seems like the stores that didn't get a BTAC allocation got a case of ETL.

Passed on some Michter's Toasted Barrel Finish Bourbon today for $42. Seems intriguing, but haven't heard anything about it and didn't feel like gambling today.

I hope that isn't the case because ETL has been popping up all over NJ.

While calling around last night, I found a store that still had a batch 5 (or older, since I'm told batch 6 hasn't hit MI yet). Guy was asking $69.99 for it ($20 over MI state minimum). I told him that was too much of a mark up for me. Honestly though, I may drive over there after work tonight and just bite the bullet if its still on the shelf.

Passed on the latest ECBP at 140 proof with a $60 price tag. I'm debating going back. I'm just coming around to liking the lower proof bottles I have.

A 2014 GTS for $500 that the retailer claimed the price was that high because the distributor was charging that much. Called a separate retailer (who'd unfortunately just sold out) and he confirmed the standard price. BTW - The BTAC appears to be hitting DC now.

yeah, there a few stores (two that are owned, I think, by the same guy) that have just outrageous prices. I can't believe they sell any bottles at that price.

This was not one of those stores, I think (I'm pretty sure I know which two you're referring to). I'd gotten some Willetts there earlier this year at good prices, so figured that they'd be a good place to try for BTAC, but when they called and told me $500, I politely declined!

Passed up WT Diamond Anniversary @ $105 in Montgomery county. Solid discount off MSRP, but the price would need to be about $50 or $60 before I considered taking a leap.

CETHSB @ $79. Just so many other bottles that I enjoy more for half the cost and the WT Diamond for $150. Can't do it for 90 proof.
