    I'm going to have to defend the Partysource here. They are only 1 of 2 stores that I know of that offered BTAC on their websites. I was lucky enough to grab a Stagg as soon as the email went out also. I tried to add a Weller but noticed that had sold out as well as the Sazerac 18. Having been caught with the slow to checkout process with the other store I hurried through and got lucky.

    There were 77 bottles of Stagg when I put mine into the cart. I looked back within 5 minutes and they were all gone.

    I don't expect any retailer who is kind enough to offer these items online to invest in the Ticketmaster style systems to handle the traffic. It isn't a reasonable expectation given the high volume they have on these items once a year due to the limited supply and increased demand. I am thankful to PS for offering these online but am a bit surprised at the same time.

    I'm afraid this in combination with the other store's online fiasco I witnessed along with K&l's policy for this year and everyone else's:

    Demand is up for the BTAC, VW and all other high end releases.

    I passed up BTEC Oats & Rice bottles yesterday. Was surprised to see them sitting on a NC-ABC shelf though.

    Came across a few bottles of Hirsch Selection 20 year old American Whiskey. At $81.99 each I left them all on the shelf.

    They're all over my part of town. I encouraged the local ABC board to start bringing in more of the limited releases....it backfired.

    3 Bottles of Old Heaven Hill BIB (1L) , and 1 bottle of VOB BIB (750mL). That's what's left at Dicortes in Waco. Wish I had bought it all. I did get 1 OHH and two VOB. Kicking myself now that I've tasted both....

    LOL... Well I'm sure BT is happy with it. Those bottles will make nice dusty finds for some bourbon newbie in about 10 years. Go back and sell your local board on bringing in some FR limited editions! Oh... and I noticed a lot of crap rye on your shelves too.

    Passed on deep shelves of all the 2012 BTAC. At $90 each, I thought I would wait until I found it somewhere a tad more reasonable.
