    I do quite a bit of shopping in the Quad Cities. If you can't find a particular bourbon in Clinton or elsewhere on the Iowa side, I can just about tell you where you can find it on the Illinois side. The Hy Vee in Milan just started carrying Weller 12. That's the first time Ive seen it in the QC area.

    Re: Hello From Iowa

    Finally another member from Iowa, welcome aboard. I live in the SW corner of Iowa. Four Roses is only sold in a limited number of states and Iowa isn't one of them. Iowa has a pretty limited selection of bourbon being the control state that it is. But you've probably noticed that for yourself. I usually jump down to Missouri to buy most of my bourbon or buy WT 101 in Iowa. I see you like to run to Chicago area to be able to extend your choices. If your curious what can be purchased in Iowa here's the site http://www.iowaabd.com/alcohol/search_products.jsp The list isn't totally up to date like under WT they don't list WTRB although as you know you can buy it in Iowa but it gives you a good idea. You don't live to far from Brad he can hook you up with some good bourbon hunting spots for sure. Post often, make some new friends and have fun. Official chat nights are Sunday and Thursday but chat is available anytime stop in it's a lot of fun. If you have any questions someone on here can answer them, but give us your opinions too tell us what you've tried what you liked and why. Didn't like and why.
