    Re: Weller 12 flying off the shelves?

    Haven't seen a bottle of Weller 12 in about six weeks now, but there is so much else out there to try that I haven't really missed it either.

    Re: Weller 12 flying off the shelves?

    I haven't knocked myself out looking for it lately. I just happened to be in a store that sometimes has it. I noticed an empty space on the shelf.

    Re: Weller 12 flying off the shelves?

    I haven't found any in about a month, just from looking in the stores I frequent. But I'm pretty sure I have enough for 4 family sized bottles of SB blend.

    Thank you for that advice. However, I will not be drinking the WSR this weekend. I have to attend a wedding in Louisville KY., better pours ahead. Next week when I hit the WSR at home, I will be sure to let folks know how the week-opened bottle tastes.
    Best,

    Yeah, I have some in the bunker so I don't go looking for it. I do check when I am in a store. I was at my main retailer last night and he had some. The price was pretty good compared to other retailers. I would be happy to connect any Indy area SBers via PM. However, I really haven't seen a wide spread shortage.

    Unfortunately, I only really know of Bevmo and Total Wine. The one non-franchise liquor store I stopped in just stocked the usual suspects.

    Lol.. I agree I found it for $19.99 for a 750... They also had liters and 1.75's..

    I've never had it but is this something to try and go deep on? Is Weller 12 a yearly release or what? I've looked barely before and have never seen the 12.

    KC, it's a $20 (for you) 12yo wheated bourbon, regularly stocked. It can be really good or just meh. I haven't warmed to wheaters yet, I've only tried MM, Larceny, OWA and W12, but W12 has been my favorite of the bunch. A $20 12yo is generally an uncommon sight these days.

    At that price...I'd buy a case of it. But that's just me.

    Just passed through KY, saw a few handles at one store. Nothing anywhere else.
