I grabbed a picture of some locked up stock at my local liquor store today for you folks that get your boozes at MSRP. We certainly don't in these parts.
But, you've convinced me to go back to my local shop and buy that bottle of Michter's 10 for "just" $230 ($250 including tax).
It's the only +$200 bottle of anything that I want to buy but I just spent $175 on a newly released $350 Spyderco knife and I'm feeling generous but that's the last time that I spend that much $ for a bottle of booze whether it's wine or liquour.
I promise! Fingers crossed. LOL!
The black DLC plain edge Autonomy 2 that I've been been waiting for and that was just released and just became available on Spyderco.com and from certain vendors.
I buy from Spyderco because, as an Opfoucs member, I get it cheaper that way and only buy from vendors or other 3rd party sellers if I need to do so.
Um... I'm going to drink twice to you.
I had no idea about this opfocus program.
I've been overpaying for almost a year.
The OpFocus is a great program!
I was paying too much for Spyderco knives for over a year too before I discovered it.
Unfortunately, some members were abusing the program and Spyderco now limits OpFocus purchases to just 10 a year, which should be fine for most people.
Despite owning over 130 Spydercos, I don't recall ever buying more than 10 knives from Spyderco in a year.
Spyderco now also added language to make it a violation of the program to "resell" any knife purchased in the program, resulting in the loss of membership privileges to anyone discovered doing so. Also a good idea.
Sad but true, luckily I have a few bottles of the SB and Rye in the back of cabinet, but I have yet to come across any of the yearly releases for anything close to MSRP - there is a bottle of the 18 year marriage in a shop in town, but he wants $2,000 for it.Small batch is much easier to find than any of the other varieties, at least where I am.
This is very good Bourbon, Cheers Marty !
I look it up online, the Vintage Wine and Spirits downtown Mill Valley have it for the same price that goes here in FL. I found also few other excellent bottles, you might want to try it further down the line: The Woodinville Port Finish and Wilderness Trail 6 yo BIB, both great pours at very affordable price.
One of my favorite Pinhook juices - The initial bottling of the 2 years old Rye (Horse name Bourbon N Rye) and the same juice, bottled in the Vertical Series as "Tiz Rye Time" in higher proof and already 4 years old. My personal preference is the 2 yo, but this just could be me, that's why we are all different...
BTW, they sold out completely of the Bourbon N Rye, if you come across a bottle of it, forgotten somewhere in the shelves, it was around $30-$36, buy it, you won't regret it.
