    Yeah, you're right -- regarding the proof, I was thinking of the green label. The white label isn't available to me here in Middle Tennessee. I have to drive an hour or so southeast, till I'm into the SE Tennessee (Chattanooga) area to find it.

    Welcome. Several of us are in the Atlanta area, so if you can give a heads up whenever you're headed this way, you can probably get a recommendation for a good store or two.

    I have found the Google search gives terrific information.

    Want to see some of the liquor stores in Louisville, Kentucky?...

    Just punch it up and it will give you "most" the info you need...I can almost bet there are many more stores in Lousiville, but it's a start.

    Here's one for Lexington, Ky

    http://www.superpages.com/yellowpage...Y/T-Lexington/

    Try a search in your city and see if it helps. I hope so. Might save you a lot of time.

    A few calls will track down specific bottlings (if available) in that area

    Many here are on the trails of the Rittenhouse 21...I hope this helps them track which liquor store has it first.

    Welcome Bluntman, masked hunter of bourbons. Mail order is a wonderful thing if you're in the bourbon and rye desert (like the state of Nebraska). Providing you can have things shipped to you in Alabama.

    Unfortunately, mail order isn't an option in our great state. Apparently, our government hasn't figured out how to make money off of it yet

    I will be in ATL next weekend, though. Taking my daughter to Six Flags for her birthday. Do you guys have any recommendations for stores on that side of town?

    Old Forester Signature

    You'll find the shopping better if you travel to Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, or Mississippi. Maybe Florida, but I haven't tried that, yet.

    Tim, you are really over a barrel there in 'Bama. As I said, I found out myself while in Decatur back in July. Out of that group you name, the only one I would spend time with is the WTRB - and maybe KC every so often. The rest make good mixers at least. I think a few of us in surrounding states should undertake a mission of mercy to you on at least a quarterly basis to deliver some relief from the outside.....kind of like the Berlin Airlift.

    The only store I visit much in Cobb County is Mink's on Delk Rd, off I-75 just north of I-285. Used to work in Douglas COunty, but inthe years since it has grown a lot; probably a good store there by now.
