    Bourbons Available Only In Kentucky

    When I head down there next week, I'm looking to pick up a few things that aren't available here in Indy.

    So far, I'm planning to be on the lookout for AAA and HH BiB 6 year. I know AAA has shown up in a few various stores around the country, but I have yet to find a bottle near me.

    Any other recommendations?

    Rather than look for things available ONLY in Kentucky, take the approach of finding things that AREN'T available in Indy. If you visit your local stores often, it should be pretty easy to spot new labels.

    I suggest Mellow Corn BIB and JTS Brown BIB

    You might want to taste JTS Brown BIB before you buy a whole bottle. The profile is, shall we say; not for everybody. IMO not a particularly good pour; but, of course others may disagree. I still have a half bottle I've been using exclusively for sours for a year (I don't make many sours). Just sayin'....

    Good point.

    I'm not familiar with Mellow Corn. Is that a white dog?

    Is there a TPS location anywhere near Louisville or is it just the one location near Cincy?

    Kroger has really good deals if you mix & match 6 bottles. If you're just buying a single bottle, it seems like Meijer has better prices (or at least here on the NW side). Plus, Meijer carries quite a bit of the single barrel offerings.

    Really? I wasn't aware of that! Do you happen to remember which store you've seen it?

    It sounds like VOB BiB is a must-add to my KY shopping list.

    1. Mellow Corn is a corn whiskey, not a white dog and is very tasty. I forgot about that one not being here.
    2. You're correct - there is only one TPS location
    3. HH 6yr shows up at Kahn's occasionally. I can't remember seeing it anywhere else in the city.

    Sometimes you will find a whiskey which is available in your area but significantly cheaper in KY. Hancock's single barrel is 45-50 dollars here in MO, but I picked it up for $28 at Liquor Barn. If you've never had it, it's very similar in profile to ETL, and well worth $30 a bottle or more.

    At $30 dollars, yes. Hancocks is one of those that when you drink it you say, that's nice, I like that, then you forget about it. There are simply too many other plain vanilla Bourbons out there that cost less.

    Re: Bourbons Available Only In Kentucky

    I would like to try a case of Ale 8 also. Is that readily available in the Louisville-Lexington areas or am I going to have to do a little hunting?

    Ale 8 is not hard to find, wish that were true here.
