    WSR was $9.99 (everywhere) not that long ago. W12 is $23.99 in most places near me, plenty available.

    Re: Weller 12 flying off the shelves?

    Interesting thread. I'm amazed that paper label Weller is still available in New England. How many years has it been? This leads me to think large caches of stuff really do get forgotten for years in distributor warehouses. Amazing.

    I also note how quickly this got to six pages when it is essentially just members reporting local conditions. That's a really great thing for this board to be able to do. Producers spend a lot of money to get that kind of information.

    For my part, I've never had trouble finding Reserve, Antique and 12 in Chicago. I was in Binny's Lincoln Park last week and it was well-stocked with all three.

    Re: Weller 12 flying off the shelves?

    I also find this surprising around here - on another thread I commented that locally they were already down to OGD 80 - yet a short trip over the border found the 86. The fact that there is ANY paper Weller around when you'd be hard pressed to find current W12 consistently in stock you'd have to suspect this is just lost cases in a distributor warehouse. This is why we need direct shipping in MA!

    If they were that sloppy with lettuce they'd have to throw the whole shipment away but they can get away with it with whiskey.

    Sloppiness is an excuse for a few cases going astray ever now and again.

    Re: Weller 12 flying off the shelves?

    Just to be clear I've found only 1 paper label WSR in MA, and the owner of the store said that he had found it buried behind some other stuff in his storeroom and had just put it out for sale. It was just a lucky find. New Englanders drink HARD and certain stock turns over rapidly, but for some reason not the Wellers in my neck of the woods. And if you don't believe me on New England's love of booze, check out this article:

    I think it's dumb that Hartford and New Haven are lumped together, but there are 5 New England cities in the Top 25 for 2012!

    I suppose that is why dusty hunting around here is so pointless ...

    To quote Lady Bracknell, "To lose one parent, Mr. Worthing, may be regarded as a misfortune. To lose both looks like carelessness."

    I've seen a few handles of the paper-labeled WSR in the past few days, but have yet to find a paper bottling of W12 or OWA.

    And you will have a very hard time finding a paper W12 as it was a good 3 to 4 years before OWA and WSR became paperless in '09. The infamous '06 Everett's W12 bottling was paperless.
