    Jay, OW12 is pretty readily available in NY if you are willing to cross the line

    Not in the City as often I as used to be, but it may be worth making a trip one of these days.

    In the meantime, I will be up in Vernon, NY in June for a show, and with little else to do up there except gamble, I may drag people around dusty hunting upstate.

    Not so old, that Pace commercial still gets airtime in the NY/NJ area.

    And BT may have a soft spot for TX, but everybody has a soft spot for the money and sales volume they can get from NYC.

    Where do you get your Weller 12 from?

    You don't see that commercial down here anymore..for what it's worth I love NYC. Went there on vacation a few months before 9/11.

    There are a lot of online retailers that stock Weller 12. The last batch I picked up ended up coming to about $30 a bottle for four bottles, including shipping. Worth every penny IMO.

    Showin' yer age there . Oh wait! So am I! O_O

    Weller 12 is everywhere in Texas (Dallas). Every single store I have been in has Weller 12.

    In fact I noticed the bottle changed slightly. It now has an embossed wheat icon.

    Ah yes, rhe online retailers, the ones that relentlessly teaser NJ residents with offers that they cannot ship to the Garden State.

    Re: Current OWA vs. Current Weller 12

    By pure coincidence and totally unrelated to this thread, my wife an I adjourned to the swing in our gazebo this afternoon to enjoy the unseasonably mild weather in Ohio with a bottle of OWA (for her) and a bottle of WLW 12 YO (for me). Glencairn glasses for both of us.
    We took turns sharing our glasses and concluded that, compared side-by-side, the 12 YO comes out ahead for richness, mouthfeel, and overall complexity. With that said, we are still big fans of the OWA. Because there is no significant cost difference, I will continue buying both. (A recent purchase at the Liquor Barn in Lexington included another handle of OWA>)
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.
