    Squire beware. Shortages of VOB** are upon us

    here in the homeland of Kentucky, the Very Old Barton well is running dry.

    Both the 86 and 100 proof in large sizes are out of stock until at least mid January. 750s and liters are in very short supply.

    **mileage in other states will vary. This is just in KY for now but where there is smoke..

    Hell hath no fury like squire without VOB.
    Peggy: Look Al, the rubes think I'm sexy!
    Al: So would I if I had whiskey for breakfast.

    Quick, toss an extra of OGD in the cart.

    Comes at a terrible time, what with me down to just a few cases.

    Yikes! I just opened one of the four I have (and I'm talking bottles, not cases!) - impossible to procure easily in these parts. Looks like that bottle of OHH 8 year I just opened is going to get some overtime ...

    Edit: Didn't I read on SB somewhere that Barton recently expanded distribution to new markets? Did they spread themselves too thin?

    Well, since I can't get any more, and since I can't make my only handle last forever, I'll do what any self-respecting bourbonian would do. Crack it open, and have a pour. Yes, this is good bourbon.

    come to think of it, I haven't seen any BIB in a while. I see the two lower proofers all the time, but not the BIB, unless I go to the big chain store.

    Load up squire! I still have a CDL if you need mass transportation!
