    Re: "Texas Made" Bourbon 1835

    We don't have that problem in Dallas… Simon Taylor, Sorin Trancau, Larry, Rudy and Vince are always reliable for a good recommendation.

    Simon is the one who basically told me I'm wasting my time and money by shopping at Spec's.

    If you're looking to score many bottles of special releases, then you're going to have to hit several places. Simon is usually fair in his distribution and tries to spread the joy around while taking care if his loyal customers. But this is off-topic.

    If you're looking for a knowledgeable recommendation on whiskey, then talk to Simon or Sorin. They have different preferences and they both know their stuff. They've introduced me to some great stuff.

    No, I haven't, and that's probably why.

    I've done this a couple of times and so far the recommendations were: Willett Pot Still Reserve, Noah's Mill, and Pure Kentucky. I don't ask anymore.

    He pushed Rowan's Creek on me when I said I was just checking out the selection. I bought a bottle back when I was giving them my business but wasn't impressed enough to buy another anywhere since.

    Edit to add I'm sure they just push the inventory they need to move...

    Just a quick update on what Spec's is pushing now. I found myself there yesterday unfortunately (to get an agave that Total Wine didn't carry), and I heard the bourbon guy pushing JR Ewing. It just gets worse and worse...

    Perhaps a local tv journalist could do an expose'.
