    K&L usually wants $67, cheaper than BevMo, however KBD jacked up the price by $13 when they realized they were almost out. Local BevMo is still $70 because that's the old price. If they were to sell it faster, and then reorder one last time, you would find that price much higher next time around.

    Re: KBD discontinuing Vintage 17 Bourbon

    I'd been eying it at a store down in Eugene. Drove down Saturday and bought one - $66.10.

    It's not bad. However, I tried some side-by-side with a close equivalent - Berheim-produced 14.5yo Binny's "Weller 12" - and the latter was better.

    Just picked one up for $60, left one on the shelf. Anyone in St. Louis who PM's me will get the location.

    It can still be had around here, also.

    Think I may grab one or two this week.

    Re: KBD discontinuing Vintage 17 Bourbon

    I found a couple of bottles in the DC area for $64.99. They've been there for at least 9 months, so I'm guessing the proprietors are not aware of the general price hike. PM me for the address if you want them.
