    For you folks familiar with the Louisville area. Which store has the best selection of Bourbon?

    Liquor Barn is the big local retailer, with several locations, that tends to carry everything that is available in the state. Old Town, on Bardstown Road, prides itself on carrying every Kentucky product that is available in the state.

    Both have good turnover and probably aren't good sources for dusties, but if they don't have something it probably is not currently available.

    I second Chuck's recommendation. I stopped at Liquor Barn in Lexington this last fall on my way to a family wedding and purchased quite a few bottles. Mostly things that I cannot find in VA. I don't think you will be disappointed.

    If you like Ginger Ale, make sure you pick up some Ale8One.

    i second the Liquor Barn recommendation. Altho I was there the day after Christmas, there weren't many empty spaces. The high $$ stuff was behind glass, and they even had some Parker's..... but I was too much a cheapskate to pull the trigger (but I wanted too!)

    The Fern Valley Liquor Barn is the smallest of the three. I like the Hurstbourne one, but the one off Westport seems to have a similar selection.

    None of them seem to carry the Rittenhouse rye, so you'll need to go to Old Town for that.

    Slightly off topic - what about in Bardstown?
    We fly into Louisville for the sampler this year, but will probably head straight to Bardstown...

    Well, good news. the Fern Valley Road location is on your way to Bardstown, well basically, it's not far off the expressway.

    As far as Bardstown, from what I understand, Toddy's is the place there.

    No, they have a couple liquor stores in Bardstown. But you're better off price wise shopping in Louisville. Personally, after the last Toddy's price hike....I'm boycotting!
