    Wild Turkey Shortage?

    A friend of mine, who lives in Palatine, Illinois, is a regular Wild Turkey drinker and says he has recently been unable to find it at his usual locations. I'm talking suburban Chicago, specifically the northwest suburbs. I know we have a lot of folks in that area. Is there a Wild Turkey shortage, there or anywhere?

    I recently had some reports of an Old Taylor shortage, and that turned out to be a brief glitch as distributors changed with the ownership change. This might be the same thing though, obviously, Wild Turkey is a much bigger brand.

    I just bought a bottle of WT101 yesterday. There were plenty of bottles on the shelf.

    Plenty here in PA. If PA has it, everybody should have it.

    I've seen a little less KS in some places but in no way would I characterize it as a shortage.

    There's plenty of WT in the Quad Cities and points South-East.
