    I just got an email from Brett @ Binny's. He said in the next couple of weeks that he will have hand picked Saz Jr....which in his own words he is "really excited about, as the stuff I sampled through was universally outstanding".

    Sounds great to me! I think Binny's should open a store here.....

    I'm gonna have to drop by Binny's and Sam's a bit more often than I have, lately.
    Oh no! You have walked into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue!

    Just stopping in to say I got one of each of these today. I practically had to pry them out of the hands of the store manager. He only wanted to let me have 1 of each bottle. I think other stores in the area got some and I am going to go see. I am going to try to get more Handy and Stagg as those are probably going to be the best and "most wanted". I will report back later if I find more hopefully taste them soon...

    I've got a pry bar I can loan you

    None here in Nebraska and from what I can tell not much hope on the horizon. You people in Kentucky burn me up you always get everything first, it's like you think that they make the stuff there.


    Good luck, good hunting!

    Needless to say, I'm envious, hopefully not for long. I feel some gravitating my way.

    I was able to find some at some other stores. The Handy appears to be in VERY short supply. 1 store got 6 bottles, another had 3, and another big chain store got them all but the Handy. Handy, Weller, and Saz appear to be the ones in shortest supply. Everyone got a good supply of Stagg and Eagle Rare. I managed to pick up 4 bottles of the Handy and several more of the others. I am going hunting again tomorrow for more Handy and Weller.

    According to bottling information from the fact sheets that I was able to pick-up:

    Stagg -- 89 hand picked barrels
    WLW -- 22 hand picked barrels
    Saz -- 28 hand picked barrels

    does anyone have the information for TH Saz or ER?

    Just got hold of the TH Saz :

    ER -- 47 hand picked barrels
    TH Saz -- 24 hand picked barrels

    Tasting note from the fact sheets:

    TH SAZ "Bold Flavorful Allspice" 8 years and 5 month at bottling
    ER "A touch of caramel and a hint of leather"
    SAZ "Mature and spicy. Notes of oak, leather, and molasses."
    Stagg "Like a big chunk of dark chocolate" 16 years and 3 months at bottling
    WLW "A mouthful of sweet molasses" 15 years and 3 months at bottling

    I picked up a 3 bottle case of the TH SAZ today. The store only got 1 case and was keeping it in the back room with the rest of the Antiques. It came with the fact sheet and tissue paper on the bottles. I also picked up another WLW. It appears the the WLW is the shortest run with the TH SAZ a close second. 24 barrels for the entire world until next year!

    53 Gallons in a barrel
    29.75% evaporation
    24 total barrels
    Equals 893 gallons of Handy
    3785 ml per gallon
    Equals 3382200 ml's total
    Equals 4509 750ml bottles total

    Chances of finding some in Oklahoma equals slim and none.
