    Re: Places to buy bourbon in DC?

    Well, I'm sure Julian can settle the matter
    He plays 'em close to the chest! As if we could have grovelled more, could you imagine the response a reference to a 30 year Pappy would have brought at the gazebo?

    No such thing as 30-year VW bourbon. Must be a missprint.

    Re: Places to buy bourbon in DC?

    The Montgomery Co. store in Burtonsville has the largest selection in the Montgomery co. The manager, George Shelley is very knowledgeable and will special order anything he can from the distribution network. The entire Mont. Co. network received 8 cases of G.T. Stagg. The Burtonsville store, because of George’s persistence, received 4 cases. He now only has 2 bottles left. This is a picture of George. Ask for him when you go.

    Re: Places to buy bourbon in DC?

    Just wanted to say thanks for the suggestions! The Wine Specialist turned out to be right across the street from my hotel, and I picked up a bottle of Van Winkle Lot B and Black Maple Hill 11yr old (no idea if this will be good or not, but I figured "What the hell?"). I hope to crack into the Van Blankle tonight!

    ...I hope to crack into the Van Blankle tonight!
    A note: when we refer to "Van Blankle", we're not talking about just any Lot B, but rather Randy Blank's (doubleblank) single-barrel version of it, selected last summer. The only place to get that is directly from him. Hope to see you at the Festival!

    Ah, gotcha... in that case, it won't be Van Blanke, but hopefully it will still be good...

    Cheers!

    I don't know about the prices, but that is a damm fine selection of bourbons

    Pretty sad when I've worked out that of the 100 whiskeys listed there, Australia has 20 of them available accoss the country and 2 available if you are at 1 of 2 'specialty' stores in Melbourne

    Will, You won't be disappointed in the Lot B but for those fortunate few of us, the Van Blankle is Lot B on steroids.
