    Weller 12??? It is definitely about time! I saw a Willett 4 Yr. rye up in Dunwoody also, but thought it was a fluke. Glad to see some of this stuff is making it to ATL!

    I saw that at Minks too, Jack. I was unsure on whether it was Barrel Proof, or not. It didn't specifically say so, as far as I could tell, but the proof was pretty high. What did the bottle you saw say?

    I think the Willett Rye I saw was 4 years old and 116 proof.

    About two weeks ago I saw a Willett rye bottle at a bar in the Brookhaven area. I asked the bartender about it and he said that the distributor had just brought it in. Hopefully this is a good sign for the future and we'll start getting some different Willett bottles.

    I've also seen the Willetts all over town. Haven't seen the Weller 12, though. That is definitely great news.

    Great. Now I have to sneak out of work early to see if it made it as far as Athens.

    If I had no bad luck, I'd have no luck at all. Gloom, despair, and agony on me!

    Another reason to come back for visits, then!

    Could it be that BT is changing their marketing strategies with regard to W12? We started getting it in Indy a couple of months ago, and had never seen it in the state before.
