    For the following reasons:
    1) Didn't find half the stuff I was looking for and
    B) overpaid for that Handy

    but the companionship was good

    It is otherwise a good store. Usually state minimum pricing. I'll be back because its a local store for me.

    yeah. for whatever reason, I think the stores in this area don't stock it, or sold out of them quickly. It also strikes me as odd that neither the Rittenhouse BiB or 80 proof are carried in the state, but the 21 is available.

    I had to pass up the Jefferson 17 since I was buying a complete BTAC. $300 was all there was in the kitty.

    Yeah it is odd, I don't get it.
    BTW have you seen any of the new WT Tradition 14yo here in the Winter Wonderland AKA The Great Lake State?

    Did you tell them to go do you know what to themselves?
    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.

    I haven't seen it yet. I haven't really been looking, though. I'll give a heads up if I see some.

    In a recent thread I mentioned I was able to pick up 2 cases of Stagg and 2 bottles of the Handy for $39.50/bottle. It was marked wholesale through the local LCB due to me working for a restaurant. I bought all I could, as they were only allotted 2 cases of each of the BTACs.

    I missed the WLW by about a week, and I'm not a big fan of the others under 100 proof.

    I was polite. But I did remind them what the state price was. As noted above, passed them up.
