    Help me pick a state.....

    Hey guys! I live in the bourbon wasteland of Pennsylvania , I really want to try some OWA 7/107 to go along with my unopened bottle of ORVW 10/107. I will be driving south in March for a mini-vacation I will be in:

    West Virginia
    Virginia
    Tennessee
    North Carolina

    Which of these states are the best for finding more variety of bottles (unlike PA), I want to hit several liquor stores on this trip ....Larger cities I will be passing through: Morgantown, WV, Wytheville, VA, Bristol, TN/VA, Johnson City, TN, and Asheville, NC. Any standout stores in these cities?

    THANKS!!!

    You'll be in a good area of Tennessee to find some very nice bottles.

    Be sure and get a bottle of Evan Williams White Label BiB - it's extremely rare outside of TN and KY and is a really (to my taste) super whiskey. Plus it's only slightly more expensive than Dasani water. I'll never be without several liters in el bunkero.

    Cheers to smokinjoe who pointed me in the direction of a couple awesome Tennessee stores! I loaded up on some nice Wellers and Van Winkles that will keep me happy for months to come!
