    Maine to New York

    I'm going to be heading to upstate NY for my sister's High School graduation in a couple of weeks . . . this trip will put me through Western Mass and Connecticut also . . . I know nobody wants to reveal their dusty spots (& that's fine), but anywhere with an especially good selection that I should hit up on the way through or while I'm in NY??? Looking for things I can't get around here mostly (and of course if I find any dusties (especially Turkeys) then woo-hoo). . . I'll be near Poughkeepsie I believe.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Are you going thru New Hampshire?
    If so pick up that new Maker's Mark Commemortive Bottle honoring that state's 75 anniversary of their Liquor Control Comission.

    On second thought just cruz onto NY.

    The Preimer Group has a few stores,
    I'll second the Premiere Group - I've been to
    the Wmsvl store and it's just huge. They had
    bottles of the '08 BTAC there as of a few
    months back. I'll be going that way this wknd
    and plan to stop in and check 'em out.

    Oscar, I appreciate your efforts, but all of these stores are farther away from where I'll be than Maine is.

    The little lady and I are going to the finger lakes for some wine-ing in a couple weeks and we're going to be cutting thru Canada and coming out in Buffalo, so those all work great for us!

    Thanks Oscar.

    Re: Maine to New York

    I was able to stop by the Wmsvl Premier store
    today. Picked up two bottles of 144.8 proof
    Stagg (2007 I think - I mistyped when I said
    2008 above) and one each of 17 Year Vintage
    Bourbon, Rowan's Creek (Batch QBC No. 06-70)
    and Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 Year "Lot B".

    There were at least 6 bottles of the '07 Stagg
    left on the shelf after I grabbed mine.

    ...and you will probably see them on eBay in a week or so once the lurkers read your post.
