    Your Next Bourbon Purchase

    I went to the store yesterday and stood and stared at the MM section for a while before ultimately moving on. I may change my mind before it's gone but I haven't pulled the trigger yet.

    To tell you the truth, if Weller were available to me, I'd do the same.

    Re: Your Next Bourbon Purchase

    I go to the one in Beaumont about once every two months. It has a good selection but I can get the same stuff at my local liquor store here. The one in Houston is the one that has the really good selection. I make it over there about 2 to 3 times a year.

    Houston is where I shopped so that's the store I think of when Specs crosses my mind.

    It's the biggest liquor store in TX in the largest city in TX. Great selection of mid-shelf stuff.

    I've been to top liquor stores across the country and Specs is first rate.

    The specs in downtown Houston is a great liquor store. They always have a good selection of Willett 6,7,8,9 year old single barrel Burbons.

    One of my beefs with the place is that when they get anything good in someone comes by and buys every last case. Therefore, it's difficult to get the good stuff without being "in the know." They only Willett's I've seen are the rye and the pot still bottle. I have been lucky enough to grab a couple of good bottles there over the last few months.

    The last time I was there was in early December of last year and they had a barrel select of six and seven year-old Willett and I got a bottle of each.

    Re: Your Next Bourbon Purchase

    A few weeks ago I asked the bourbon guy where the Willett and PHC was and he replied "some guy came in and bought it by the case." I snooze, I lose! Still plenty of other good stuff there though. The next time you see something good there send me a PM before it's gone!
