So a couple of weeks back I noticed a local high-volume liquor store I frequent was out of Weller 12. I asked if they had more in the back and was told they're having trouble getting it now, because of a lack of supply to meet the demand. I thought this sounded odd, but as I've looked around at other stores in the area, most of them have very depleted stock (except the places that sell very little and still have the old-label stuff around). I've asked a couple of other places about distribution and gotten vague answers.

So, anyone know if this is a legitimate distribution problem, and if so, is it just a short-term problem or a long-term one?
