    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

    I buy all of my AAA. VOB, and OWA & Weller 12 in KY because they aren't available in OH. I also look for what's on sale at TPS and the Liquor Barn because prices are controlled in OH. Not all KY prices are better but the selection is most definitely better.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    A visit to Kentucky is a chance to pick up brands not available elsewhere, I've found some neat stuff there over the years.

    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'....

    Not sure if Indy has it or not but Fighting Cock is a decent buy in KY.

    theres at least two BIB HH here. the gold and black label ( i think its a 3 year, but no more than 4), and theres a white label 6 year BIB. The white's better in my opinion. Even the green 6 year 90 is a good cheap one. Theyre all about $10/750

    Re: Bourbons Available Only In Kentucky

    I totally agree with going for what you can't purchase at home. For me ... the full line of VOB and all BIBs. Check the "high priced spread" sections of TPS and Liquor Barn ... occasionally you'll fine something exotic and/or hard to get. That's how I picked up my first GTS and PVW.
    Sto lat!!!
