    I have friends with a liquor store, and they have marked up practically everything in the place, spirits, wine and beer over the last 6 months. They still work off the same margins, so it is all coming from the distributor level to them.

    Speaking as a consumer I wouldn't mind as much if the merchant would make it clear why prices have increased.

    That reminds me of this Jack Nicholson clip (inserted to pad character count)

    Hey - What a coincidence, I was just at my hole, and had to call a friend and bitch about the prices now a days,everything is up at least $5, Come home and find this thread started already, like squire stated it would be nice to know where this is eminating from or is this just supply and demand or are they just "cashing in" as they would say.Still no BT or ER10 at this place, Blantons -- $61, RHF - like $58, My All time go to - EC12 - $29.99, I did see some of the Smooth Rambler there that caught my attention -The straight ,99proof - $39.99, SB - 122.8 proof $44.99, & the SA10 $51.99, but was forced down a few shelves and ended up with EWBIB which is new for us @ $19.99, EWSB 2001 @ $26.99, and the fav. EWB @ $13.99 (the EWB & EWBIB were liters).Just now doing a sbs of the EWB, EWBIB, and the EW 1783.Love the Bib, but still have to go with the EWB first, then the EWBIB, followed by 1783. Not that I needed to buy any of these, but was "just" passing by so......

    I have noticed a significant increase in Rock Hill Farms and Blantons lately, both very close to $60. Seems like just last year they were much closer to $50

    The last time I tasted Blantons I was fairly unimpressed. In a SBS it fell behind OWA by a wide margin. Others at the table agreed, sorry to say.
    Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most

    Totally agree, I dont think I would buy Blanton's again, the first time I ever tasted it , it was fabulous, but subsequent pours were not as pleasurable, then I tried the RHF.. that I would splurge on again..
