Passed on forester 1920 at Costco for $46.99

A bottle or two or three would have come home with me at that price.

Went into one of my favorite small stores, one town over from my house. They are usually very well priced and they seem to be infinitely stocked with Weller SR at $20. I walked in and saw all 5 BTAC bottles sitting on the shelf where I could pick them up and look at them, right next to other bottles like they weren’t special at all- except, Stagg was $599, WLW was $699, Handy was $799, and Saz and Eagle were $899. Why on earth would a store expect 900 for a bottle but keep it on the shelf next to a jack Daniels? Needless to say a I passed and I was a bit disappointed because this store has always done right by me. Only thing I can figure is they got these bottles for nearly that much and figured that’s just how much they’re worth.

Passed this guy up today. I thought about it, but my Dave Ramsey budget would not have been pleased (especially since I already grabbed a 1.75L today)

I like the 1792 BiB, but I'll freely admit that VOB BiB is money better spent.

And you could get 2 of them with change leftover, comparatively.

Ohhhh, gotta respectfully disagree there, woulda been all over that.   But budgets "should" get respect, which is prob why mine hates me so...

Lots of markets that don't get Barton BIB got 1792 BIB so while I agree on principal, since I can't get Barton BIB without crossing a few state lines I have bought a couple 1792 BIB and enjoyed them while I tried not to think about it ;), as always the bourbon helped.
