    What can\'t be found in Atlanta

    My brother-in-law is coming out to Colorado for Christmas. I want to get him a bottle of something NOT available in Atlanta, GA. Now, being in Colorado I am not looking for KY only bottles (4roses SB, AAA 10 yr, VOB, etc.)but something that's hard to find down there. Would Buffalo Trace fit the (mash) bill? Or something less obvious, like Weller Antique? I would like to be under $25.00, so GTS won't really work. Looking for some good ideas, which with this group should be in abundence. Chaz.

    Buffalo Trace is not available in Atlanta. Others that come to mind (that you didn't name) are mostly more money (Stagg and Saz are things I hunt out-of-state). Elmer T. Lee is not available. Rittenhouse, if he likes rye is another bargain we can't get. That's really all that comes to mind right now in the $25 category.

    The Weller Antique 107 is common here.

    BTW, VOB 90 is here, if you want to ask him to bring something.

    I like the way you think Bob! I think I'll get him Buffalo Trace; It's $18.00, and darn good at that. Elmer T. Lee is one I figured would be everywhere. I may splurge ($23.00) although BT is getting a lot of good press.

    Get one of each for yourself, taste, then get him the one you think is best.

    Not sure which has a wider distribution, BT or ETL. But neither is handy here.

    I'd have to say ETL is more widely distributed for the simple fact that I can get it in Missouri but not BT.

    It looks like Buffalo Trace. I just wanted to make sure there was nothing obvious I was missing. I had even thought about WT "Rusty's" reserve 101, since it's slowly disappearing, but I think BT is a lot better, and it sounds like he won't find it there.

    Re: What can\'t be found in Atlanta

    I went to Atlanta several times, thinking I should be able to find almost anything. That was the way I remembered Atlanta from my college days. But I could hardly find squat.

    Buffalo Trace or Elmer T. Lee should do the trick.

    There's still a fair amount of RR 101 in Atlanta, enough so that I've decided my bunker is stocked, and I'm giving a couple for holiday hosts.
