    I know each batch varies somewhat, but do you think the roundtable selections are noticeably different/better?

    I've gotten some information about Booker's 25th Anniversary ship dates to North Carolina. PM me if interested.

    Re: Special Bottling for Bookers Have a Question

    I noticed this morning that an online retailer in Colorado had the Booker's 25th Anniversary available for $100 (actually, $99.99). There were 12 bottles listed in his inventory this morning. When I went to check again during my lunch break, 3 were sold, and only 9 remained in the online inventory. PM me if you want the website info.

    Re: Special Bottling for Bookers Have a Question

    The PR agency responsible for launching the Booker's 25th say it's not supposed to be released until early next month, but I have received documented evidence of sightings in Illinois and elsewhere. They're trying to figure out what's going on. Probably a case of one hand (sales and marketing) not knowing what the other hand (distribution) is doing.

    And already here and gone in Louisville. TPS had 50-60 bottles showing in stock, past tense. All gone in a day.

    Not really a Beam guy normally from a taste profile, but have to hand it to them....this stuff is flying given the premium.

    All you have to do is call something a limited edition and price it accordingly. What's in the bottle doesn't matter anymore. Beam is taking advantage like everyone else.

    Tell that to Wild Turkey. Still see case after case of Forgiven on the shelves.

    how do you check the louisville inventory? from what I see, LB took the inventory tab off their site months ago.


    it'd sure be nice to be able to look online and see what stores have what at any time.
