    Re: \"New\" ryes - 6-yr old Sazerac

    I was told today by a liquor store salesman that he talked to the distributor today and that the Saz Jr. would be in the end of the month to early Feb...in Louisville!!!

    What's taking so long?

    I continue to shake my head that we here in Tennessee have gotten it so early -- that never happens! Even JD is orchestrated via Brown-Forman (its owner) in Louisville.
    I'm beginning to think maybe the distributor jumped the gun to our store -- we got a 6-bottle case just after Christmas -- just because we'd been right about its existence from the beginning (Thanks, SB.com ).
    On the other hand, he had to have in-house, didn't he?

    Unfortunatly, this means that I'll probably miss out on this one, as I'm going back to school(Louisiana) tomorrow and don't expect to find any there...

    Any still left in that store, Tim? or did you clean them out?

    It is the store where I work part-time. They now reside in the home where I reside.

    Have you found any yet? I was talking with a retailer this evening and he said it should be widely available by now. However, must keep in mind that I am in Tennessee and as Tim said, we got lucky with this one. I began to see it back in early December and it may have been there longer. It is now in just about every store I visit on a regular basis. Hope you have been able to get some by now. If not, I am sure Tim can take care of you going between KY and LA on your next trip.

    Oh, yes I found it in Louisiana and have procured a half dozen bottles.

    But, unless they have done an additional bottling, then 3500 or so bottles(as Ken has said the first run contained) just doesn't go very far. And they gave away the first 1,000 of those to VIPs, that doesn't leave very many for the shelves.

    Don't be so sure -- I'm already 'taking care' of several people! They only issued 2,600 bottles .
    Seriously, since this isn't intended as a one-off, I'd advise folks to just wait until it's bottled again. When will that be? I don't know. Ken?

    If you call Binnys.com Whisky Hotline and talk to Brett. He has the saz jr for sale. It may be your best shot this time around.
