View Full Version : Ever heard of a "Sazerac Antique Collection"?

My wife (bless her beautiful heart) told me that she thought she saw the BTAC in a local liquor store for $49 each. I called them and asked, and the manager said he'd never heard of it. Well, she was pretty sure, since we'd seen it in another store for $65/bottle. So, we hopped in the car and went over to take a look.

Sure enough, they had 4 of the 5 (turned out they had sold out of the Stagg), so I grabbed a bottle of WL Weller and went to the counter to buy it. I told them that THIS was the BTAC. :duel:The manager said their distributer had referred to it as the "Sazerac Antique Bourbon Collection".

Anyway, he is a fan of bourbon, so I pointed him to SB.com, since this is where I've learned all I know about bourbon.:bowdown:

I'm trying out the WL Weller now :drinking: (thanks to recommendations from several on this board:thankyousign: ). Wow!:yum:

Hmm. Maybe you CAN have too many smilies in a post

The Sazerac Company, of New Orleans -- a wholly-owned operation of the Goldring family www.sazerac.com -- is the owner of Buffalo Trace Distillery. I guess the distributor/retailer was being formal.

Is Sid's still open there in downtown Sioux Falls? Talk about a place with dusty bottles! Great place to shop for various spirits including bourbon!!

Sid's Crown Liquor Store - sure is, and I don't think I've ever been there. Thanks for the tip!
