Moving to Little Rock, packing the bourbon, got ??

Got a promo that requires a move to Little Rock, so I'm packin' up the mini bunker.  Planning on a final trip to Total Wine in Louisville before the final trip down for some apparent unobtainium or sig cheaper prices (OFitz BiB, WR DblO, MM CS, HH BiB, Willet PS & PKXO, maybe a few others).   Have been by several LS in NLR, what are the thoughts on the better ones in the general area?   Ace LC in Cabot seemed decent (scored an OF 1920 for a great sale price), any others that are a must see for selection and esp price?   How about Memphis or east Texas areas too?  Would love to score a W12 at retail (only at retail, not worth what the bourbon pimps pump it up to).

You likely won't be able to score a W12 in the Memphis area without paying up for it or having a relationship with a store. All liquor stores in Tennessee are small businesses and separately owned, so being a regular customer and building relationships is the key to scoring any allocated or LE bottles at most stores. Most of that stuff never sees the shelf. There are always exceptions, of course, but then you just have to be lucky and walk into a store on the right day at the right time. Good luck with your move.

White County AR is a hidden gem. You could probably double your bunker there. ????

Yeah I pondered that after I pulled everything out, so I boxed a bunch of it up quick....

I was in Memphis a few weeks ago and visited 4-5 LS and found the selection to be pretty decent. There were many store pick selections available. More than I see here in Boston.

Little Rock is my home town, can’t wait to get back there. There are lots of stores in the metro area that have a great selection. Colonial Wine and Spirits has a great selections, but gets a ton of traffic. I have found several great bottles there. If you make it up to fort smith and Fayetteville, you can find some hidden gems up that way. My buddy has scored 18 yr ER and Pappy multiple times over the last couple years.

That looks like too much to pack up and take all the way to Little Rock.  If you need to you can drop by my house in E'town on the way out of town and I can take some of it off your hands, especially the Stagg Jr., RHF, ETL, well just about any of those would do. :D
