Passed on full shelves of BTAC and another PHC Cognac, which has shown up now in 2 local stores
I don't get it
Some people come on here and claim to be passing full shelves of BTAC, at the same time, I keep hearing that BTAC bottles are impossible to get - strict allocations, stores get one bottle of each, waiting lists hundreds deep, yada yada yada.
At the risk of can someone help a newb understand the BTAC hype?
Timing and location are the keys, one of my local stores sold out in 15 minutes and another hasn't sold a bottle until I bought 2 saz18s.. All the stores were allocated 3 bottles of each so it really isn't hard for the stores to sell out quickly.
Some places haven't even gotten their BTAC yet. I haven't heard of any NYC stores getting it in yet.
Minnesota is not getting BTAC/Pappy for 2 more weeks but apparently Wisconsin has already gotten their allocation. It just seems totally random.
Passed up WLW, Saz 18, GTS and TH. not by choice I didn't have enough points with Specs to get one so picked up the ER17.
Everything! Went to the state liquor store at lunch and it was closed due to Sandy. Even though we in the southwest part of PA didn't get hit very hard the state closed all the stores. Another reason the state controlled liquor bureaucracy sucks
