Any Decent Stores In Western NY

Recommended Posts

HoustonNit

Hello SBers from Western NY and also my friends from the great white north, particularly ones in the Ontario region that make it into Western NY often.  Will be spending Thanksgiving week in Western NY.  Does anyone from the area or that goes often have any recommendations for good stores to check out.  Also curious about any bars or restaurants with decent selections?  Mostly interested in the Rochester area but will spend a little time in Buffalo as well.  Looking for maybe tips on dusty hunting or any good store barrel selections, however won't mind hearing about a store that keeps a bunch of BTAC on the shelf at retail.  Also may go to Niagara Falls, Ontario for a bit.  Wondering if any of the LBCOs will have anything decent.  In particular trying to find the new Lot 40 12yr at 115 proof.

 

Please PM me if you can any suggestions.  

 

P.S. Go Bills!  Even if the season is basically over after the Saints embarrassment.

I haven't been there in years but Premier used to be the place to go. Last time I was there I picked up a few of their Weller Centennial selections. Ask if they still have any. Ha!

Gosh I guess it's been a while. I'll be sure to tell them that Josh told me to ask for one stashed in the back.


Centennial pick that must of been great.

It was definately good, but I recall an odd sour note on the back end. I think it was one of the last retail selections BT did with Centennial.

Yeah was very surprised it was still on the shelf. The stuff inside also taste older. Fantastic pour, no idea why they still have so many. They also had an ER and BT pick that just came in that they didn't say flies off the shelf so there's plenty of bourbon shoppers there.
