    Where is the Stagg

    I was under the impression that there were more Stagg bottles produced this year than any other year.... So I thought I will be able to snag a few.



    Well, where the hell are they????


    Every town I have been in is sold out......


    Are you seeing any???
    Cheers,

    Re: Where is the Stagg

    Scott, you're right that production was up, but distribution apparently has changed because a lot of retailers got their allocations cut. I've managed to get the number of bottles I wanted (in fact I increased my number after I tasted this years release) but I have yet to see a bottle on the shelf. Every bottle I've procured has been from behind the counter.

    Yeah, I see three on the floor on the other side of the room. I've been meaning to put them up, but I keep forgetting.

    FWIW, Ohio's allocation was the largest in the three years that I've been hounding them to bring it in. I think we got 6 cases, if not a couple more that have not hit the sales book yet.

    Re: Where is the Stagg

    In my parts, only Handy, ER17, and WLW are hitting the shelves. If you wanted Stagg or Saz18, you needed to have a prior discussion with the shop. Same goes for VW products, except for Lot B, which you will see on shelves.

    Re: Where is the Stagg

    I wonder if it will be like it was around here last year. One store got 2 cases. I believe Gary and I bought all but one bottle. Then, three or four months later, more of it mysteriously showed up. Could it be that some distributors are playing games? Just food for thought. Joe

    Re: Where is the Stagg

    I can account for one bottle which is very nearly empty.

    Re: Where is the Stagg

    I've been to 4 different Binny's locations and I've seen BTAC at all of them...only 1 of the 4 had GTS on hand. At least from what I've seen with the other versions of BTAC the constant price increases have slowed down the buying rate as last year at this time most of the BTAC was gone from the shelves. I know that last year I had snatched up a couple WLW, GTS, and Handy by now...this year my funds have gone for PHC.

    I have seen some Stagg in the Boston area.But not as much as last year.Some stores did not get any..There seems to be more Handy,WLW and Eagle Rare 17 in Mass. SAZ 18 seems to in short supply as well.
