I had the same problem. I am out here in California which does not receive shipments of it yet. Best advice I can give is order online from a company like Binny's. I think it's 18 dollars or so and shipping isn't that expensive.

I just bought a 1.75 for $31.00. The 750 usually goes for $17.99.

Binny's is a great place to find Buffalo Trace and many other single barrel products that Brett has personally selected. Out in CA, you may want to try www.applejack.com. (http://www.applejack.com.) They are closer and perhaps the freight will be less. Still, Binny's is hard to beat.

Someone does need to explain the lack of BT out here in Southern California. To here about the fine quality and then be "shut out" is a bit disappointing.

Utah is not very original when it comes to selection. Our stores are state operated but they do bring in BT and ER. The BT is going for $19.99 for 750 ml and the ER is at $26.99 again only in 750 ml.




Don't give up don't ever give up.

I'll second the comments on Binnys from an International viewpoint as well. They've always been professional, helpful and friendly in my dealings with them. The only draw-back is the cost of shipping and customs to get bottles to my door http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Oh, and my next order....definately another bottle of Buffalo Trace http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/yum.gif and my first bottle of Elmer T Lee http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Let's hear it for Buffalo Trace in Utah! Same price as Jim Beam Black and (to me) a lot tastier.

But the impressive thing about Utah state stores is that they bring in Rittenhouse Rye ($12.99).

I just found that there's a state store a few blocks from my Murray, Utah clients. Utah may be the closest source to California for this elixir.

Bump...

Buffalo Trace has invaded St Louis finally! Today found it at Lukas Liquor superstore and at the Wine and Cheese Place. On a sad note, the former home of my bottle of WT 12 split label, Brown Derby Wines and Spirits, is closing its doors and only had a couple of bottles of its house brand left among the empty shelves. Sad to see a bottle shop close.

If you are paying in the 20.00 range for a bottle of BT, that is about the the norm.

Actually, the store where I get my VanWinkle deals has it for less than 16 bucks a bottle. Good deal for me and the city of St Louis!

I know I read somewhere that Buffalo Trace was possibly limited in distribution, is that why I can find just about every other BT product but cannot find Trace itself in California?? http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Christian,
You are right, the scarcity of Buffalo Trace has precluded us from entering the CA market. If we put just a limited amount in the state, we would catch more flack than it is worth. When we get our supplies up, we will definitely be there!

Christian has no BT - at least for now, but he definitely hit the bigtime over the weekend by acquiring 2 bottles of Pappy 23 out there in CA.....good for him! http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

We know BT is working overtime these days to meet the demand. I for one (and I think it is safe to speak for many others here), are in great appreciation of your efforts and fine products. We look forward with patient expectation for your continued success for many, many years. http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/bowdown.gif http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/toast.gif http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/thankyousign.gif http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/thankyousign.gif http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/thankyousign.gif

Was very lucky in finding a bottle of Buffalo Trace in a package store. B.T. is not available in state run ABC stores. Usually the package store buys from the ABC normal stock. So to find it for sale anywhere in Alabama is highly unusual. I think the state needs to move out the rock gut and put in a full line of the quality Buffalo Trace Products.

A couple of times in the past, I have considered an opportunity to relocate to your beautiful state. However, my longstanding impressions are now changing & it is beginning to sound like I would not have stayed too long. http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/ohgeez.gif

Ken, As you shore up your supplies of Buffalo Trace, are we going to find some of the "lesser" brands disappearing? In particular the AAA that we pick up everytime we are in KY?

Ken said on a different thread that AAA was more or less a goner. I don't know if he said completely, but most states won't get it anymore.

Over the summer AAA was very scarce on the shelves in Louisville, however when I was there over the holidays, it was back in full force.

Please confirm that AAA 10 YO is NOT going away? If it is I will need to place a very large Binnys order.

Ken Weber

I almost hate to answer this question since the information I have is not positive. Some of our older brands are running a bit short on inventory as we divert more into newer brands. AAA 10 year is one such example. You can currently find AAA in Kentucky and Virginia. Some other states may still have some on the shelves, but once it is gone, it will be a long time before they get any more (a few years). You should be able to find a supply at Binnys (www.binnys.com) however.

Would you be willing to tell us what else may be getting low on inventory? Given the age of the AAA 10 yr., I'm getting a little worried that I may not be able to find OC 12 in the future, and it's one I definetely like to have around. Should I stock up on it, or anything else?

After visiting over 50% of the stores in my metro area over the course of the last 6-8 weeks, I found only 1 that had any AAA-10yo still on the shelf. I did spot some AAA 10-Star (6yo) in several stores but left them where they sat. The remaining stores that I did not pay a visit are in parts of town that likely never even carried AAA-10yo anyway. If you like AAA-10yo or just want to stock up some for future trading fodder, best to take action soon. The 1 store I mentioned had 4 AAA-10yo in 1 liter bottles last week. I bought 1, leaving 3 more that I plan to buy tomorrow.

I bought a bottle of Buffalo Trace yesterday. 750ml $19.99 I didn't think that was too bad. I was a little disappointed in the flavor, it wasn't quite what I expected because I had read so much about it on here. I may have to revisit this one tonight.

We have a lot of BT at $18/bottle here in New Orleans. I tasted some yesterday from the "brown liquor cabinet" at the store where I work. It's definitely a nice bourbon for the price. It's not challenging in terms of being a complex drink. But it's certainly worth having on the shelf, at least for my tastes. I may get this one to have around for times when we have company who would like to drink bourbon, but won't necessarily appreciate the qualities of some of my more expensive bottles.

Buffalo Trace is not available everywhere in Texas. You can get it in Dallas and Houston, but forget about it in Austin and San Antonio. I guess there just isn't enough of the pour to go around. Good for the price ($20), but better can be had for the same money. Actually, it is pretty tasty...now I want some.

I agree it is worth having on the shelf. I would even buy it again.

I usually see it for about $20/bottle. It's a decent bourbon with a great nose, but I was a little underwhelmed given the hype I'd heard about it.

Does anyone think that Sam Houston (which I've only seen in Texas BTW), is really just Buffalo Trace in a fancy bottle?

Sam Houston and its bunker-mate Jefferson's Reserve are bottled by Mclain and kyne "Distillery." It's not really a distillery though, as they simply bottle whiskey purchased from someone else; presumably Heaven Hill. Both are somewhat overpriced IMO.

I agree. It's sitting in my office [read "client justified office stash"] but I was a tad disappointed in Sam Houston. I thought it had a little bite on the aftertaste -- a tiny bit like Jack Daniels etc. like there is nothing to mellow the rye portion. Don't get me wrong, it will still be drunk within next six months...:grin:
