    Drop hints and continue to patronize this location. If they are not bourbon aficionados, give them tips on new releases and follow up to see if your tips/suggestions are selling. If they are, then outright ask for a bottle of pvw/btac when they arrive.

    Also do all of your booze shopping there. Even if beer is a few cents more than the local big box grocer (who treats it as a loss Leader/shelf filler), Grocers sell beer at close to cost, most liquor stores cannot operate on such small of margins.

    That probably 'splains the heat you're getting. The barrel proofers take some easin' in to, and can be dang near nuclear right off the bat. But, it's not simply the alcohol. It's the unadulterated, full blown whiskey flavor that is powerful, as well. Enjoy...with care!

    Where would that 'worth it for regular purchases' line be for you and KCSB?

    If you could get it for, say, $35.99, would that change your long-term commitment prospects?

    (I will admit that this is not entirely hypothetical in my case).

    Eric, That's a price a bit on the high side...it's $39.99 here and and sometimes on sale for less....but at 9 years and almost barrel proof...not out of line with recent releases...such as the recent Russell's Reserve, CEH Taylor and EC 12. Why some are loading up on the bargains that are left.

    Yes, at $35.99 I would definitely buy it again. Not having a lot of disposable income I can't afford to "splurge" like this very often. My price range for bourbon is generally $30 or less.

    No, it isn't a ridiculous price, just more than I can afford to buy regularly. Very good whiskey!

    I picked up a WTRye101 today for $25. He only had the one bottle, and kind of hidden on the top shelf at that-- I almost missed seeing it.
