    I'm fairly new at Bourbon, so here's a question I've been meaning to ask. Where the hell do you guys find these older vintage bottles? I've never seen anything older than the current releases on the shelves at my local stores.

    Today I purchased my first bottle of Elijah Craig 12. I tried some over the weekend and was seriously surprised at how good it was, especially considering the $24 price for a bottle. This and Larceny will be my regular pours for awhile.

    Poke around the site for the threads about "dusties" there are some "what did you find" threads and some threads devoted to tips on what to look for.

    Ohio being a control state plays a big part.

    Older stores, typically those in areas that used to be middle class, but are now depressed. A word of warning if you do though, go early in the day (morning or early afternoon) and be careful who you talk to. See my story here.

    For the most part, this is correct. I never found a single dusty in my 2 years of alcohol buying in OH, but I did find some good closeout deals. MI, however, is a control state in the sense that prices and what products can be controlled, but stores are privately owned. So older stock can sit around on shelves.

    Proud owner of a WLW '12 thanks to a kind soul who politely declined the arm I was willing to offer for it.

    There is a few threads on this subject in the collectables forum
    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.

    I purchased some more WTR101, a bottle of AAA 10star to compare to AA, a bottle of Fighting Cock, and some of my favorite rum, Zaya 12 yr. Nothing super over the top today.
