    Unfortunately, this question is all too easy to answer for me :

    All that is available at the moment is :

    Jim Beam white
    " - black
    Jack Daniel´s standard
    " - Gentleman Jack
    Four Roses yellow label
    Seagram´s Seven Crown

    There was a time, circa 1 ½ years ago when we could get Buffalo Trace, Evan Williams SB, Rittenhouse and WT rye among other things but now the situation seems to have reversed back to the dreary standards of the late 90´s when I first got into Bourbon in a big way. Sad, but true...

    Of course, we still have lots of stuff available on special order but that´s outside the scope of this thread.
    Delighted to see you if you can find me!

    I'm thinking that maybe I should quit complaining about how much things cost here and be happy that I have access to the desirable bourbons here in Indy! (And a job to help me pay inflated prices!)

    I'm new to the site and have been exploring the local liquor stores for bourbons. I have only found 2 that I can buy and will drink without traveling:

    Knob Creek
    Maker's Mark

    Pickin's are a little slim here, but not as bad as I first had thought.

    Eagle rare (love this stuff)
    ORVW 10/107 (which wasn't readily available, but is easier to get now)
    Evan Williams SB
    Old Weller Antique (very over priced here, and harder to find)
    and my regular pour Virginia Gentleman 90

    I can find a few others locally, Pappy 15 & 20 just starting hitting the shelves since I requested it, but most of the others I can't find or just one local store handles them and they are typically 20-25% above what the average retail is that I find on the internet. I want to buy locally, but in some cases it's easier and more cost effective to put together an order for out of town. Especially if I want Rye!

    Yes and no. Actually I didn't mean for my reference to be taken literally. I apologize for causing confusion in a vain attempt to be witty.

    I'm pretty sure that my local Safeway grocery store has some odd brand that I tend to equate with a house brand. However, it does not have the Safeway name on it, nor is it labeled "Private Reserve".

    The next time I shop for groceries I'll pay closer attention to the labeling of the budget-priced offerings at Safeway.
