Thread: New in Chicago

  1. #11

    Re: New in Chicago

    Full disclosure I'm originally from Pittsburgh but have been in Chicago for 3 of the past 5 years and plan to stay in the area awhile. So I'm a Pens and Steelers fan. Hope that's not a problem.. Haha.

    Anyway it would be great to attend a SL event and meet some of you!

    btw how difficult is it to land some of the more limited bottlings in the city? Like BTAC, Pappy, OFBB, FR LE, etc?

    It's not that difficult to find limited edition bottlings in Chicago but you'll save yourself a lot of trouble trying to be in the right place at the right time if you just develop a good relationship with the right whiskey monger. I still see OFBB sitting on the shelves at a few places and some of the less popular BTACs can be found too.

    Hey Chicago people:

    My friend Kristina, owner of West Lakeview Liquors, is currently in Kentucky at Buffalo Trace, Heaven Hill, Four Roses & Willett Distilling to hand select 8 barrels of whiskey & rye. I'll follow up with her to find out when they'll be available in her store. She's got great taste in whiskey, so I know they're going to be good.

    Bootlegger, your getting some good info. Strange that no one commented on the EWSB you layer out. It's a wonderful "table" bourbon. I alway have a few around.

    OFBB is old Forrester birthday bourbon. You sure about that price? If so buy them all. It should be more like $40

    Brett may be referring to Old Fitzgerald.
