Hey Ďall,
I have been hanging around for a bit and finally made time to log in.
Iím in PA and scour the PA state store web site monthly for sales and closeouts.
They are pretty good about bringing closeouts/sales in from another part of the state.
Takes awhile, but beats driving.
My wife got me into bourbon. She is from Memphis and got me started on Manhattans!
We always have Manhattan Fridayís!!
Every now and then I use the good stuff with a drift of vermouth to change things up!
Hopefully, we can plan a bourbon camping trip to Kentucky next year or so!
Well, good site and plenty of info!

And because they are all controlled by the state they pretty much suck by definition. You need to go to Jersey or MD for some shopping.

Hey Lab Walker,

A couple good things about the stores in PA are that they have 1.75L bottles of EC12- which I had never seen in Indiana- and the Sazerac is ten bucks less than here. That Saz might make a good Manhattan, but to be honest I wouldn't really know (not being a Manhattan drinker).

Nice quote in your sig! Another great one from Oscar Wilde that I saw on a guy's t-shirt at work the other day: "Work is the curse of the drinking class"

Thanks Skunk.
I like your quote! It is a CURSE!!!
Any how, I'll have to try some of the EC. They have a few nearby. I am stocked up for now...maybe in Sept?
The Saz is on my list!
