    Yeah, ditto. No quality issues in my opinion, and still awesome in the SB blend. Pass W12 up at your own peril. Fortunately I stocked up when I could, as it's gotten even more scarce now in the NY area (never seen W12 in NJ). OWA is still generally available in northern NJ.

    Re: Old Weller Antique shortage??

    I was at a warehouse type wine store and on the shelf they have Weller 12 for 20.99 and Weller Antique 107 for 26.99.
    I always thought the 12 was more expensive than the 107.

    I'm no Weller 12 fan, but $21 for a 12 yr age stated bourbon with the love that it has, is absolutely absurd. There is no way that BT should be putting that product on the market where retailers can price it at that. Someone said earlier in one of these threads that they wouldn't mind paying more for some of the BT products in order to increase availability. I agree.

    Like you SN, I have always thought that OWA was, and should be, lower priced than the W12. But, maybe proof trumps age in their current pricing models.

    Thanks, SN. I never doubted the pricing that you reported. I've seen the same myself, and heard similar things from others. My incredulousness is in that BT would price this whiskey so low, while at the same time, publicly agonize over the supply/demand environment that currently faces them.

    methinks I'd have grabbed more than two at that price!

    That's the standard everyday price for those bottles here in Houston: WSR ~$18, W12 ~$21, OWA ~$25.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    I've typically seen OWA priced higher than W12 at list. However, seeing W12 priced way out of line is also typical.

    Re: Old Weller Antique shortage??

    Went by Julio's at lunch. Pretty much all mid-shelf BT products are either sold out (BT, ETL, Loch & K(e)y OWA) or will be soon (ER10, Standard OWA). Upper and upper/mid shelf stock seems fine - plenty of Single Oak Project, CEHT standards, and Blanton's.
