Are you sill in liquor business? I take it you either worked for Glaziers or Republic.
Weller 12 is still easy to find in Houston. There was a shortage last year, but I have not seen it missing from any shelves in a while.
When I inquired recently, BT said Weller 12 would be back "this fall" but that distribution would be limited to a few states.

I've had the Rebel Reserve and I can attest that it tastes is almost identical to the Weller SR. At $5 more per bottle I don't find it a reasonable deal.
Whisk(e)y - a bargain at any price !!!
Don't know how I've missed this thread till now, but anyway:
- Interesting that some compare Rebel Yell Reserve to Weller S.R. Standard RY is made by HH for Luxco/erstwhile-David Sherman, while the Wellers, these days, are BT product;
- as noted here ad infinitum, Weller S.R. was my earliest "favorite" (albeit, Louisville/S-W versions);
- I've recently noticed Rebel Yell Reserve on the shelf of at least one local liquor store;
- I guess I'll have to pick one up, though I'd still lean toward a Weller if the price is noticeably lower.
To me RYR taste nothing like weller sr. In fact I got so little out of RYR that I was vatting it 2 part to 1 with OGD 86 to drink it. That was until I gave my bottle away. At 27.00 in Virginia not worth the money.
Always do sober what you said you’d do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.

I got a bottle as a gift. It's a perfectly fine bourbon. But then again, what bourbon isn't?
My advice: reserve judgment until you try it with a slice of pie. That does the trick for me!
