    Re: Weller in Ohio or Michigan

    I like Weller 12, but it's not available in Michigan. It is available in Indiana though, if that's any help at all.

    You must search elsewhere.
    That's why most of my bourbon purchases are made outside of Ohio. I buy my OWA and Weller 12 in KY. And the AAA. And the VOB. In AZ, Blanton's was 39.99 vs. $55 in OH. So I got two.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    Re: Weller in Ohio or Michigan

    You have to buy a Weller 12 - AND an OWA 107. I like OWA 107 better, but varying blends of those two (I personally like 60% OWA, 40% Weller 12) are honestly better than either by themselves, IMHO. I've tried different blends, and this is one of the few I've found where the result was really greater than the sum of its parts.

    Looks like I just need to stop by your house in Toledo when I am there visiting my folks. Do you take credit cards

    You all talked me me in to a Weller 12 and OWA...once I find it.

    Frankly, I get my Weller 107 Antique shipped in from KY. There is a store with a selection of single barrel 107's that are outstanding. Did you know the Old Weller Antique 107 is the same mash bill as Pappy Van Winkle and same distillation? Makes you think. . .

    Weller SR occassionally shows up on the shelves around here, but because it is considered a special order item, it is seriously overpriced!

    Re: Weller in Ohio or Michigan

    As I mentioned in another thread, after carefully considering all the advice, I finally made my purchase. I decided to broaden my tasting scope and picked up a bottle Weller 12, Ritt 100 BIB and VOB 100. All of which I cannot find in Ohio.

    It is difficult waiting for the UPS man to bring that box. Now my next dilemma...which to try first? I guess that is a good problem to have. Thanks again for the advice. I will post my thoughts in the Tasting section later.
