  1. Sticky: Re: BOTM 10/13: Henry McKenna Single Barrel BIB

    I, too, found their "batches" different (not surprising if they aren't lying about the single barrel). Bought a bottle in MD while passing through (far from home) and liked it enough to buy a...

    FWIW, Virginia ABC Stores I visit (I-95 corridor WashDC to Richmond) have Blanton's in 750s ($56) and 375s ($23), but I've not seen more than two of each on the shelf at any one time. Montgomery...

    Re: Hello from Southern Virginia!

    Welcome, Roncag. I, too, am surprised what one can find on the shelves of some of the out-of-the-way Virginia ABC stores. I can still find the EWSB's from 2002 that are Virginia ABC picks. BUT,...
