I stopped by the 4th Ave. store in Seattle tonight and spoke with the manager there (Mary). Very nice gal. I gave her my wish list of 12 bottles that I would like to try and find. Only one on my list (Henry McKenna SB) is immediately available on their order sheet, and she is going to get me a couple bottles. Most of the other bottles were Buffalo Trace or VW products, and then Old Forrester Birthday Bourbon.
With the exception of the PVW 20, WA. lists the other VW products as "discontinued".
Though I am sure it will be beating my head against a wall, it will be interesting to find out what they are able to get. Mary says, if it's available in the US she should be able to order it as long as the distilleries themselves do not have regional restrictions or allotments.
For you other WA. or OR. folks, if your interested I will keep you posted and if by chance any "special" bottles are available I will be sure to let you know. Some of you might have more access than I through travel, but just in case I will keep you posted on what I learn.
If you have a bottle you want me to ask her about let me know.
It sure seems that the Wellers have disappeared from our shelves as well i.e. Weller Centennial, Weller 12, Special Reserve.
They do have several bottles of OGD 114 which has been hard to find around here as of late.
