    What is in Kentucky that is not in Michigan?

    Good Day All-

    I hope you are doing great.

    Heading to Kentucky next week and am curious what I can find in Kentucky that I cannot find in Michigan? Does anyone have a list?

    I know of some like Four Roses gift shop bottles, Willett, not sure about others. I am guessing maybe some BiB?

    Would appreciate any help.

    Best regards, Tony

    Not as much as there used to be, but still some. HH White Label BiB, HH Green Label, VOB BiB, Larceny, Willet and other KBD brands, Old Fitz BiB, Weller 12, Medley Bros., can't think of any others off the top of my head besides the random HH brands: JTS Brown, TW Samuels, Dant, etc.

    lots of good suggestions, but youre not likely to find any W12 or AAA 10 year here. good suggestion on the HH 6 year green label, that gets overlooked, and its damn fine for $9.
    Think about how stupid the average person is.....then realize that half of them are more stupid than that.

    Indeed, but Weller 12 isn't on the Michigan list so there's zero chance of finding it here, as opposed to the what, 3% chance of finding it in KY. And I too am a big fan of the HH green label. One of my favorite summertime pours.

    Tony, I just returned and only picked up a couple of bottles. Some FR from the gift shop Cox's Creek & at the distillery, some Liquor barn private picks and a Town Branch 100proof Rye I want to try. Otherwise there were dozens of labels I am not familiar with at prices that made me pass.
    Happy hunting!

    Almost forgot, if you're an Old Forester fan, try and find a bottle of the single barrel.

    VSOF is pretty findable here as well if interested. You may just want to go with the Larceny, though I do like the 12 profile a little better. I do recommend the Town Branch Rye. Like Fox, doubt you'll see a W12 or AAA10yr.

    Tony, you could look what's listed on the Liquor Barn web site. That doesn't mean it will all be in stock when you get there, but gives an idea. I say get Larceny and whatever bonds MI doesn't have, Medley Bros. too.
