    Weller re-appears on the shelves

    At least here in Northern KY. So far, only WSR and OWA. No W12 sighted yet.

    It never vanished from our shelves down here in Dallas- though the 12 can be tougher to find than the others.

    I've only been able to find the Special Reserve at bigger stores like Liquor Barn here in Louisville. No 12 year to be found. (At least, not at the usual stops.) But the antique and the ORVW are available.

    Was told last week not to expect more antique for several weeks (GA). Was also told to expect a hefty price increase when it does reappear. Should've stocked up when I had the chance.

    Re: Weller re-appears on the shelves

    Do any of the Houston SB'ers know for sure if the 'new' Weller Antique 107 has hit the shelves here? I ask because I saw a good bit of the Antique in one particular store and the store owner told me that it was a new shipment, but I'm not sure I believe him because the price (at least that of the 1.75L bottles) had not gone up at all, in fact it was still a few dollars cheaper than Spec's prices. So either the price has not gone up here at all (a good thing!), or maybe his shipment was of older stock and not reflecting a new price increase (doesn't seem likely), or he was mistaken and didn't get a new shipment. I'm also curious to know if the new juice tastes any different. Anyone here know anything?
    Thanks.

    I saw some 750's locally at 23.99 or 24.99 . So they musta been new stock. That makes me recall a 1.75 I left on the shelf at another place for 33 dollars. Might have to head back there!

    Yeah, $24-$25 per 750 is pretty high compared to the $18-$19 that I've been paying. But for some months now the 750's here have been creeping up into the $21-$23 range at some stores, though I've still never had to pay more than $19 for a 750. $33 for a 1.75L is a very good price (you should jump on that) and is pretty much a thing of the past around here, where for awhile now the average 1.75L prices have been in the $37-$40 range, though I have seen it at some stores for as much as $44. These 1.75L bottles from this new batch, which I've just seen at three stores now, were priced at $38, $39, and $42. So it appears (at least around these parts) that there may not really be much of a price increase at all....kudos to Buffalo Trace for not jacking the price up.

    Re: Weller re-appears on the shelves

    Just saw Antique jump $2 in the DC area on new shipments. The 1.75 from 2004 are $44 in Virginia. We are seeing the VABC raise prices on a regular basis both to capture price increases as well as to generate more income to make up for declining tax revenue's. They also tack on 5.5% sales tax..... and they wonder why folks go to Maryland and DC......
