    What age statement bourbon is left in your area?

    The only age stated bourbon left around here is Old Taylor 6 yo, Bookers, and Elijah Craig 21 yo.

    Re: What age statement bourbon is left in your area?

    I think you're missing quite a few...

    Buffalo trace still has Eagle Rare and Blantons

    Beam has Bakers and KC/KCSB

    Heaven Hill has EC12, Evan Williams SB

    Those are just a few off the top of my head. I excluded the annual/limited release stuff since it's not routinely available.

    I would also point out that private barrel offerings nearly always have age information available. The stores near me pretty routinely do bottlings of BT, ETL, Four Roses, 1792 RR, EC, and a few more.

    Kinda sounds like you just need to find a better liquor store. As of last month all of those were readily available at a number of Georgia stores (I was there for the holidays).

    You might have better luck in Auburn, Macon, or Montgomery if they aren't too far out of your way. Liquor stores in the smaller towns (and big towns too) tend to stick with what they know sells. However, it couldn't hurt to ask your local store to order something for you.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    I was thinking about doing that. The store by my house had some ORVW and VW12, the owner had no idea the obsurdity these bottles bring. He appears to be trying to improve his selection.Their is one main distributor around... GA Crown...we had a good selection not long ago...not much left...weird.

    Blanton's is NAS.

    Off the top of my head, readily available only... Beam Black, Evan Williams SB, Elijah Craig 12, Knob Creek, Eagle Rare, Bulleit 10, Russell's Reserve 10/90, Russell's Reserve Rye. That's probably it for Utah.
