    Washington State went against that trend a couple years ago and privatized. Unfortunately, it resulted in the highest liquor taxes in the country.

    Re: Michigan liquor list

    I don't know about elsewhere in MI; but in Downriver Detroit, the selection is fine for 'regular' offerings; but special release stuff is as rare as hens' teeth. The last BTAC release was almost nonexistent, and NO Parker's Heritage at all...don't even ask about Pappy! I had a chance at any ONE of the BTAC and that was IT! ....As long as I could get there within an hour or so. Not that I'm complaining. I'm getting kinda burned out trying to find these 'unicorns'. I'm happy with what I can buy, or mingle from the more available stuff.
    Just sayin'.

    I'm going through AA today and I gave Dominic a call. He said he hasn't heard yet on the bottles. Said still waiting it hear about the proof and how many bottles. He said he thinks he'll know more in two weeks.

    On similar note, anyone hear anything about when the 4RSB LE might be landing?

    I was talking with the guy at Kakos's Market a while back and he said a distributor had approached him about picking a Four Roses barrel strength offering for his store. He proudly told me that he asked the distributor why he would ever do that and ended up doing a 1792 barrel instead. That's the moment I decided not to shop there anymore.

    I'm not a fan of that store at all, they think they are much more knowledgable than they are.

    Has not hit AA to my knowledge. I'm hearing this week or next - likely only 2-3 stores getting any

    That's the truth. He claims that every single barrel they've offered has beaten "Pappy" in a blind taste test.
