    That's what I was just told at Friugals. From now on it will be released once a year with the BTAC. Next release is nov 2014.

    Dammit. In 5 years, will there even BE a middle shelf? Seems like they want a bunch of 80 proof near-blends and then special yearly release $100 bottlings.

    Re: Old Weller Antique shortage??

    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.

    Re: Old Weller Antique shortage??

    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.

    BT announced that this was going to be happening months ago:

    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.
