    Wild Turkey 12 YO availability

    According to my local stores dist. and the WT folks the 12 YO is not distributed in the U.S. anymore but there is a store in IN that still gets it from their dist. They just got a case today. It is always available there and they say they order it and get it whenever. They are the split label bottles. does anybody know what the real deal is on this? Thanks.

    Re: Wild Turkey 12 YO availability

    I don't have knowledge of this particular situation, but many distributors still have stocks of long discontinued products. For example, a local store here in Houston ordered and received ORVW Old Time Rye 12yo ...... something not made for many years. But a case was sitting at the distributor and it was put on the shelf for $19.99. My guess is that this IN distributor has a few cases of WT 12 but no one is ordering it because it is officialy discontinued.

    So what store is this that has the split label on the shelf? If it's in Clarksville, I'll go as soon as you tell me.

    I'm afraid we cannot divulge said information at this time.


    Thank you,

    Scott, I'm sure this can be taken care of by Razerburnt but just don't let Craig know.

    Come on, razerburnt, give it up!

    I know it's not the Keg, because I am sitting in their parking lot right now.

    What I did find here was Samuel Adams Triple Bock, which I haven't seen in ten years. He said he got it a couple of weeks ago and that it's still the 1997 vintage, kept in stainless and released every now and then.

    I don't know how much of that is true, but it's definitely the Sam Adams triple. I'll crack it open soon.

    This is becoming habitual.

    The distributor has a lot of it and it has not sold out yet.
    Now then, can you please tell us the name of this store?
    Thanks!
