    Andy,

    Where there are those, there is Weller Centennial, I. W. Harper, and Dickel. Keep looking and you should find.

    You'll love Centennial Louisville if you find it.

    Hmmm....interesting developments today. The Maine Beverage Co (evil liquor control conglomerate) posted their tear sheet on Feb 1st and I noticed OCPR, VSOF & Weller Centennial were still on the list. I've cleaned a lot of house lately, but when I've talked to ME Bev Co before they said that no more bottles were available for order, so I figured whatever was on the shelf was all that was left. That is why I am baffled to see these still listed on the tear sheet. I talked to ME Bev Co again today and although they had none of these bottles in their immediate stock, strangely they still encouraged me to place an order at my local liquor store....couldn't hurt, right? I placed an order for two bottles of Centennial which I'm sure won't show up on Friday when the order comes in.
    The interesting part was when I talked to the guy at the liquor store I was ordering from he said, "Oh, yeah....I remember seeing these 10 or 12 years ago with the IW Harper....." Bingo. So, there definitely was some Harper & Dickel around also like everyone keeps telling me, I just need to dig those bad boys up. Going on a small hunt Friday, got my route planned....wish me luck!

    Good Luck, Andy! There are lots of lurkers who would poach on you. They troll SB.COM to pick up info on availability of cool bottles like these. Next thing you know, they're making money on your hard work. Be careful on what you post, until you've scored. You've put the work into it. You want to make sure you reap the rewards.

    Thank for the advice, Joe...I try to be careful not to give too much away, but I think I'm the only one do any real hunting up here. There are only a handful of stores statewide and I've been pretty surprised that the ones I pulled my big hauls out of hadn't been picked clean already.

    Andy,

    Watch where they are distilled and bottled. As a general rule, Louisville > Frankfort.

    Good luck hunting.
