I asked my local small LS that is 5 minutes away if they thought they could get some more ryes and some 4Roses, and I went in today, and they had Bulliet rye, and the big 1.5 ltr of 4Roses yellow label, and even 4R Small Batch too!

I am shocked.

They are all way over priced, except maybe the big 4R YL which they want $33.00 for, but still...

We don't get what we don't ask for.

It's been said before, and is always worth repeating.

The absolute best thing that you can do is to make friends with your local whiskey monger. Bar none!!!

In time, you will be amazed at what will come of it.

They also got in some Eagle Rare.

What do you think of that one? I seem to recall it is very like Buffalo Trace?

Yes, very like an older version of BT.

Regardless of what you think of their prices, if you don't buy what you asked for then don't expect them to follow your lead in the future.

I know, I know... I'll probably buy that big 4RYL. I owe that much to them.

That's a pretty good price for an easy drinker. Lord knows a family size of 4RYL wouldn't last very long in my house.

That 4R 1.75 is where I would start.

I agree. I will probably get one tomorrow.

Then I have to decide between a WT101 rye, or an Elija Craig 12.

If the WT rye is still on the shelf, I'll probably go for it.

I would, we can get EC 12 any day.

Well I went out there today and picked up a Big Fambly Sized 1.75 liter of 4 Roses. Since I am the only one in my fambly that drinks, this will last me a long long time.

I talked to the manager. He said he saw the note with 4 Roses on it, and made some phone calls, and that's why they now have two different kinds of it on the shelf.

I told him I appreciated it a lot. He smiled. Called me "Brother", as he gave me my change. :)

Hey, it absolutely is a great idea to ask, then to patronize those who answer!!! :rolleyes:

Well, I got the WT rye, but the 101 was gone.

So I got the 81.

Should have moved faster I guess.

Gives you an excuse to go back.
