I was surprised to see it today in Nor Cal. We usually are the last to get a bottle once it's rolled out nationally (for the most part). And yeah, the pricing has skyrocketed to a whopping $60 for a liter bottle! But this is from a place that perplexingly sells Saz Jr for $50, when just last season sold it for $30.
"It hasn't cured my broken heart, but it sure helps a lot."
^^^^ That is nuts, and frankly insulting to its customers. Scarcity shouldn't automatically mean you need to be a d-bag store.
I had missed out on the old 101 rye, so when it showed up by me at $32 for the new 1L bottle, I was happy to stock up on a few.
Jinenjo, those prices are insane. For $50 you should be able to get a bottle of Rittenhouse BIB and a bottle of Dickle Rye. The last couple bottles of Saz I've had were just mediocre, nowhere near as good as years ago.
Saw some a couple months ago in SF, $34ish, passed as I still have some of the old stuff and too much other stuff waiting.
I'm feeling much better about bunkering a couple of bottles for $25 @ the high-priced store, pre-drought, now.

Same here. PA put it on sale in the state stores when the proof dropped. I drove around the area for a week buying bottles. I ended up with about 22 of them. I still have 19 or 20 in the cabinet.
If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.
Has anyone one seen this in Michigan yet? My liquor store has been ordering it, but they have yet to receive a bottle. It is on the Michigan list at $34.99 state minimum.
