    VOB BIB in Texas

    Until yesterday I had never seen a bottle of Very Old Barton Bottled-in-Bond in Texas and so I had never had a chance to try it. There were two bottles at a Twin Liquors in west Austin yesterday so I picked one up to try it. Man, it really lives up to the hype. I nearly polished the whole bottle off last night.

    Has anyone else seen it in Texas? I'm hoping that Texas has been added to the distribution area. If so, this is going to become a staple in my house.

    Limited distribution has kept Barton under the radar for years, glad you were able to get a bottle of the 100 proof.

    There's a store between Lufkin and Nacogdoches that regularly carries it, and one in Longview that says they will be carrying it soon. It's out there, the buyers just have to keep asking for it from the distributors.

    That must have been very recent...they have never had it when I was there or called and asked for it (downtown.)

    Sunny's out on Mason Rd. (Katy) has it along with a very large selection of very overpriced stuff. And according to Wade the new Goody Goody way out in Humble has it.

    If one store in TX has it, then it should be available at wholesale level and all others stores should be able to order it as well. Has anybody seen it in 1.75l handles?

    Same here, if one store can get it the others should be able to as well, but they don't.
