    I'm going to have to edit some whitespace into that post tomorrow since the spacebar doesn't seem to work on this (and may other) sites when using a mobile.

    Thanks for the welcome, spun_cookie. I may have to give the b-day a taste tonight as well since I spent way more time with the rest of the collection then I probably should have last night.

    I'm just outside of Philly and I'll agree that we have some surprisingly good stores locally.

    Cool, I havent been to it but a Canals in Burlington, NJ is supposed to be a great shop. Have you been there?

    Not the one in Burlington, but I've been to the ones in Marlton and Delran and they're so-so. The Marlton store stocks Four Roses yellow, small batch and single barrel, so I end up at that one a pretty decent amount.

    Locally, the best overall store is probably Total Wine & More in Cherry Hill though Martins in Mount Laurel is not without its charms.
