    What's going on with Old Weller Antique?

    Here in Oregon, we have only 2 Wellers - Antique and Special Reserve. They both have been going up in price - A LOT!!!

    This past year, my favorite pour, OWA, went from $19.95 to $25.95! $6.00 in less than a year! It is now more expensive than WT 101 ($24.95) and Elijah Craig ($23.45).

    No other bourbon in Oregon has increased in price like the Wellers have.
    What's the story in your area, and does anyone know what's going on?

    WE don't have it here in OH but I have my buddy grab liters of it for me in NY. It comes in at a shade under $22 there.

    It has went up about 3.25 a bottle here in the last year, year and a half. It now stands at 19.99 compared to 24.99 for Weller 12. (in the same store)

    Ohio has the 90 proof Special Reserve for 22.00 a bottle, which is a joke. No telling what they would sell the Antique for if they stocked it!

    I sure hope that's $22 for a 1.75... or else your WSR is the same as my van winkle 10/90. A good price on it here is $15, but up to $17 some places.

    Probably can thank your local gov't for that price jump. NJ has jumped from 3-4 dollars in less than a year.

    Re: What's going on with Old Weller Antique?

    Weller Special Reserve showed up in Ohio last year and was originally on the special order list. One of my local stores ended up with a case on the shelf and it was originally priced at 27.50 for a 750. The state must have somewhat come to their senses and lowered the price to 22.00, which is still 1/3 too high. I would choose a bottle of Weller 12 over SR any day, but unfortunately, Ohio doesn't carry it either. So much for the bourbon ghetto!
