For years, it seems to go through spans of months. I won't see any in the few retailers that sometimes have it. As it is now, I haven't seen one in the wild for like half a year. Each time I say to myself "this is it". Once, I got so fed up I dove to KY to stock up. Now, I have to say, I'm starting to agree more and more with the people saying the quality has slipped. Too bad.
In the last several months, I've heard salespeople, in several different stores, tell customers. ..
Have you ever had Weller Antique or Weller 12?. Its the same as the Van Winkle bourbons...
It seemed to me that in all these cases, the customer was an uninformed buyer. This kind of new buyer may be contributing to shortages in some areas.
Bardstown or Bust
No shortage here...could be in the stores .
BT announced that this was going to be happening months ago:
"Drinking when we are not thirsty and making love at all seasons… that is all there is to distinguish us from other animals."
Liquor store owners and distributors (and a few SBers ) love to gossip. If it doesn't sell they won't carry it. As with the Weller 12 supply issue, it's most likely regional and sporadic.
I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.
Plenty of OWA around Texas. Most smaller stores only carry WSR and OWA..no 12.
