I know we've got a few Metro Atlanta readers on the board. I wanted to let you guys know that spoke with the store manager at Mink's Package on Delk Road in Marietta about getting in a case or two of a few of the special releases coming out this fall. The owner is not as much of a whiskey fan as the store manager so he's had some trouble getting the OK to order some of the more expensive bottles in the past. I pushed the issue and of course promised to buy at least one bottle each of whatever they'll order. I got commitments that they will order Old Forester 2010 Birthday Bourbon, Four Roses Limited Edition Small Batch 2010, and the 2010 Parker's Heritage release.

I wanted to give my local SB brethren a heads up in case you were having as hard a time finding these as I was.
