    Does "SB. IN" indicate South Bend, Indiana? If so, have you tried CityWide Liquors, especially the big store downtown on Jefferson? They have a very good selection, often more than they list on their website:

    For example, I found four A.H. Hirsch 20yos there just over a year ago -- at $108 each .

    Or maybe this thread was stuck in my memory, causing me to think I saw something that wasn't there.

    Iam feeling better about my selections as I read, here is my 2 cents.

    1. SAZERAC RYE 18YR love it, but at $50.00 a bottle, I take Rittenhouse Rye which is my most enjoyable and best bargain.
    2. Blantons
    3. Hirsch 16 year old, always on my list.
    4. Buffalo Trace
    5. Bookers

    Weller 12 (which is sometimes available 'round these Seattle parts)
    Rock Hill Farms (also a relative rarity, but makes appearances)
    Pappy 15 or 20 (see above)
    WT Rare Breed
    Jim Beam Black

    Not too bad. I mail order the Antique Collection and some odds & ends, but it could be worse. A lot worse.

    I complain some, but local selection is actually pretty good. But I find that many of my favorites I bought locally can't be (reliably) found anymore, so I won't count ORVW 15 (and old 10), ER 101, RR 101, etc. And I've relied on my stash of such and not bought some of the replacement bottlings. So, of what I know I can get, and have bought, my favorites are:

    RHF
    Bookers
    OGD 114
    OC 12
    Blantons

    Was going to put Weller Centennial at the end, but realized I'm not sure I can lay my hands on another. No mail order in GA.
