    Places to buy bourbon in DC?

    I'm flying into Washington, DC on July 2 for a wedding on July 3. I was hoping to pick up some bourbons that aren't available up here; is there anyone here who can recommend a good store in that area?

    Thanks,
    Will

    This is just over the D.C. line. Not the best selection of the other county stores, but this one is close to D.C.

    The Wine Specialist
    2115 M St. NW
    Washington DC
    Fairly good selection, often has speciality bottles (Stagg, Tribute, etc.), higher prices than Mont. Co.

    Schneiders of Capitol Hill
    300 Mass. Ave, N.W.
    Washington, DC
    Very good selection but rarely gets special bottlings. Prices just a tad lower than Wine Specialist.

    There are other good places (such as farther out in MD and in VA) but the above are in or very close to DC.

    TB:

    I'm planning a trip up to Montgomery County soon. Which store has the best selection in your opinion?

    15604 Columbia Pike
    Burtonsville, MD 20866

    If you can make it up to Carrol County, try
    Cranberry Liquors
    405 North Center Street
    Westminster, MD

    If you make it out to Anne Arundel county, try:

    Edgewater Liquors
    58 W. Central Ave.
    Edgewater, MD

    or

    Bay Ridge Wine and Spirits
    111 Hillsmere Dr
    Annapolis, MD

    Mont. Co County liquor stores and Edgewater have the lowest prices I've ever seen in the VA, DC MD area.

    Gotta throw in a plug for the Burtonsville MonCo store. Some rarities, including VOB and Stagg (two bottles left as of yesterday), and very good prices (OGD 114 was $20, etc).

    How about the other places in Maryland? Any near Elkton? Route 40? I see a lot of stores around there but wonder about the selection. Can you offer any help?

    There is a bar called simply "Bourbon" at 2348 Wisconsin Ave. in Washington itself which claims to have for tasting "every bourbon that's available in Washington, D.C.".
    Pappy 23 is $90 a pour, though, and they list a Pappy 30yo -- for $150 a pour. Stagg is $95 and Hirsch 20 is $70. Go figure.
    But, Evan Williams black is $5, as is 4yo Early Times bourbon.
    Attached is the drink menu (PDF format), which lists the whiskeys by distillery, a nice idea.

    I noticed on their bourbon menu that they have the Old Grand Dad 114 identified as "barrel proof", which was recently discussed under a GTS thread (some even had pictures of bottles to support the claim). The newer ones, of course, don't state that. Either they have the real thing, or are mis-stating what they've got to offer.

    Anybody know anything about this Pappy 30? I thought the 23yo was the patriarch of the family!?

    Gosh, at $95 a pour, what's the bar-value of BobbyC's bunker!?

    Well, I'm sure Julian can settle the matter -- but, in the meantime, I've emailed the bar in an attempt to procure info and, hopefully, a picture.
