Yesterday, I found a liquor store that had two Jefferson PS and a half dozen Lot B Van winkle without the Julia(n) sticker. Wanted to buy one but could not justify it because another store is ordering BTAC for me.
Today I went to another store to pick up the JRPS I promised to a fellow board member and it was gone! Picked up an OGD 114 for good measure. This confirms my long standing suspicion that somebody else is in my area hunting bourbon. Long story, but somebody is in KC hunting and he's looking at the same bottles I am. Odds are, it's an SB member.
Today, I went to the store in question and picked up the two remaining JRPS and one Lot B. Hopefully my competition won't come to this store and discover that the JRPS is gone. If he does, I am confident he'll clean out the remaining Lot B. Otherwise I'll nab a couple each week until one is left. I will leave the last one for Mr X.
One day I am sure I'll meet this other bourbon nut. Can't wait! We'll have a ball!
