I've heard nothing from Heaven Hill or Buffalo Trace. Bulleit Rye seems to have been picked up by First Choice so it should be more readily available in time for Christmas. Balcones and High West are available at Nicks. We just need some Barton and Four Roses now
    Cheers cam.Will be interesting to see what proof the bulleit rye comes in at, and I still cant believe there is no widespread distribution of four roses yet, it just seems so stupid.

    Ive managed to get a few bulliets early (and more expensive than 1st choice), they are 95 proof! Ive also tried talking to Beam about bringing OGD over with no luck!

    Are you sure about that? The Bulleit Rye has a big 95 on it, but that's the rye percentage in the mashbill. The standard bottle is 90 proof.

    I stand corrected, thanks Maui. 90 proof. I should actually read labels instead of seeing big numbers.. It also appears that 1st choice has stopped stocking the EWSB, which is most disappointing!

    Well thats crap, if they get rid of virgin bourbon then i will have no reason to shop there again, their bourbon range sucks.
    How is the bulleit? A respectable WT rye101 replacement?

    I haven't even see EW Black the last couple of visits to First Choice. That's my go to cheap whisky. If they're gonna stop selling it I won't be happy. Might have to hit up all the Coles in my area and buy up.

    Ist choice have the Bulleit Rye in stock for $46, which is good value, I paid $70 only a week ago for mine. I actually prefer this whiskey over the WTRye 101, but you guys are right on the money... its the only thing i'll be buying from 1st choice.
