Yesterday morning, I dropped by my local ABC store to see what grabbed my fancy.
A few weeks ago, I had filled out a suggestion card asking them to stock the Evan Williams Single Barrel and, yesterday, they had it (the 1991 bottling). So, I grabbed a bottle and took it to the cash register, where the lady nicely informed me, "That is going on sale next week."
So, I thanked her for telling me and put the bottle back on the shelf and started deciding what else I would buy. In the meantime, she had gone to the back room and informed me that it would be $4 off, next week. Well worth the wait, I might even buy two bottles.
So, I finally decided to restock my favorite bourbon, Knob Creek, which I am currently out of. Back at the front, the lady said, "I think that is going on sale next week, too." She went back to the storeroom and announced, "Yes, the 1.75L will be $10 off. Lots of things will be on sale in November, but then nothing will be on sale in December because of Christmas."
I gratefully thanked her for all the info and said I would just come back, next week. I went home empty handed! Drank Elijah Craig 12-yr old, last night. It is still wonderful.
