I think this is just part of temporary rolling blackouts that we need to expect over the next few years. Some states flush, some states waiting for the next drop.
Bourbon only requires a glass.
Some of this discussion reminds me of an old joke.

Pretty easy to find on the shelves in Seattle but the price is BS. Cheapest I've seen is $31 before tax, which ends up being ~$40 when it's all said and done. The high price is a result of the taxes as well as the distributor pricing due to the fact that the Weller labels were never readily available out here during the state control years (i.e. there's not much demand).
If you're a member of Caskers, they have Weller 12 today for $25, plus shipping. Usually their prices are steep for me, but this is a decent deal if you can't find W12 near you. Be sure to check the shipping restrictions before ordering though!
