    Favorite Pour ....

    Has this ever happen to any of you ? ..... I went to one of 3 bottle shops that have agreed to carry ORVW 10yr 107 , only to find that one has placed an order with the only distributor in the state for ORVW and was told no can do ,,, Zero stock and no word if this is a temperary problem or the beginning of the end with a hint to start looking for a new pour ,,,,
    The other 2 shops have less than a case between them .... I will try to stock up ....but I am crying in my bourbon if this is the end ....

    Re: Favorite Pour ....

    My favorite bourbon is the Weller 19 y.o. I've learned through this board and through talking to people at the Whiskey Expo that this brand is being discontinued due to lack of supply. I am heartbroken! I've stocked up with a couple of bottles, but it's all I can do.

    Re: Favorite Pour ....

    I had an email conversation with Kris Comstock of Buffalo Trace today. The following is an excerpt:

    </font><blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr />
    We are in fact discontinuing Weller 19 from the antique collection,
    just because we are in short supply, but will replace it with George
    T. Stagg as a permanent item.

    All I can say is bummer ... and Hallelujah!!

    Re: Favorite Pour ....

    Great news about the GTS. Next question: How do we get them to sell it in Alabama?

    I see at least three Buffalo Trace products in Alabama ABC stores (Ancient Age, Ancient Ancient Age 10-Star, and Blanton's). But, nothing else that I recognize. They obviously have some relationship. I just want more of the products!

    Buffalo Trace, Elmer T. Lee, Rock Hill Farms, Ancient Ancient Age 10-year old, George T. Stagg, ....... Where are you?

    Any idea of when the "permanent" Stagg should hit the shelves? Identical to the current I assume? This is great news. I will now begin hoarding the Weller 19 and drinking the Stagg with reckless abandon

    Same for Mississippi. Although we may have the AA 10YO, we do not have the others I'm sure.

    Re: Favorite Pour ....

    Coincidentally, before I read this thread, I bought a bottle of the Weller 19 yo tonite in WV on the way to my parents'. It just said "Buy Me". They had one more on the shelf. I'll stop on my way out of town on Friday and pick that one up.

    Re: Favorite Pour ....

    Does permanent mean a yearly event, i.e., a limited amount released each fall? Or does it mean increased volume as well?

    Buffalo Trace

    I've commented several times that if Buffalo Trace were available in NC, I'd make it the daily pour. But, I may have to rethink that dream.

    I bought a 750 ml bottle tonight in WV on the way to my parents'. It was $25. I am almost positive that this was $19 last summer during my trip to Louisville. And I thought that the 1.75L that my sister brought me at Xmas was $36 - $38. So, did BT go up in price or is it just high at this one store?

    The WV store where I bought the BT is not an expensive store. Heck, they have Stagg for $39.

    If the BT price is that high now, that's getting too steep to be in daily pour range. OF 100 provides alot of taste/value competition at $16.

    Buffalo Trace sells for about $16 here in Lexington.
