    Re: Old Weller Antique shortage??

    I just spoke to Buffalo Trace and they said the predicted shortage is in full effect. I was in Binny's Lakeview a few days ago and while I didn't conduct a real survey, they seemed to be out of nearly everything BT, including ETL, BT, Baby Saz, and everything Weller. They did, however, have plenty of VOB and 1792.

    Not BT, but I can report that they have plenty of Rittenhouse BIB, and it probably won't last.

    I guess it's time to stock up on the staples.

    ...beat you to it, about 9 months ago.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    all the new upstarts couldnt have picked a better time to start putting out their stuff. People can't get their BT products, they'll of course try something else.

    I just picked up 2 bottles tonight, from a store that just started carrying it.

    Definitely, I'll grab at least a few bottles of ETL. I've never been a huge fan of BTs other standard offerings outside of the Weller family, but maybe I'll grab an ER and some standard BT as well. EHT small batch and single barrel have been around here but at $45 and $70 it's too much for me. I assume Bowman's would be included I this? I'd probably grab a few of their offerings too.

    Yeah, they warned us the shortages were coming and they are here. I would stash a bottle or two of their offerings that you like. Availability will become limited and prices will increase. I am trying to add store selections where I can.

    Careful man, that stuff will cause you to divorce your wife and buy a little red sports car.

    A extra bottle or two? Do you really think the shortage is only going to last a couple weeks?
