    A friend of mine from Henderson picked it for me in VA. It should be hitting here soon...itís time. Try the stores in/around Archdale...at least thatís where Iím currently seeing it pop up on Facebook. If youíre on Facebook get on a local Bourbon page...

    Since i retired July 1 this has been an interesting hobby...Iíve got all the Blanton's letters except ďBĒ. Iíve been from GA to VA looking hard-to-find liquor. ABC stores/clerks in NC are some cantankerous people. I literally paid cash at one store because the guy was being such an ass about me buying a bottle of Blantons. (I got lucky and walked in the store as it was coming in the door...Iím sure they were going to hold it for a buddy, etc.). Iíve even caught them lying about what they have. Craziness. VA ABC store employees have, thus far, been very pleasant.

    Nah, it was just the Special Reserve. A very decent bourbon for the price.

    I really like the OWA 107 it is one of my favorites, but I doubt I will ever buy the SR again. I haven't yet found any of the 12 year or Full Proof in my area.

    NC ABC sucks. Period. I stopped by one of my past honey holes today and scored a bottle of Old Fitzgerald 9 year. Havent been in several months due to the dry spell they've had. Manager greeted me like a long lost friend. Another great store I've had a lot of luck in is Ramseur. Manager there is very friendly. I agree, many of them are holding out for buddies

    As posted on another forum, I had never delved into Bourbon before, preferring other beverages. However for the past year, Iíve begun to gain an appreciation for Bourbon, as one of our post-docís did his PhD at the University of Louisville and has demonstrated the joys of a nice Bourbon.

    Woodford Reserve
    óworks great as a nice simple smooth and mellow sipping bourbon and also mixes well for cocktails, especially mint juleps!

    Blanton's Original Single Barrelóthe first single barrel bourbon commercially available! Complex flavors, lovely finish, kick in the pants! Hard to go wrong with this one.

    Angels EnvyóDeveloped by Lincoln Hendersen, Woodford Reserveís former master distiller and aged in old Port wine barrels. A bit of fruit flavor comes through, as does oak. Definitely worth trying alone or in a cocktail.

    Eagle Rare 10óDark complex flavors with a bit of oak. Can be sipped and is also great in an Old Fashioned or Manhattan.

    Willett Pot Still Small Batch Reserve
    óGloriously smooth and flavorful; delightful neat or with an ice cube. One of my favorites to sip so far!

    Four Roses Small Batch SelectóElegant, complex, flavorful, smooth. It does not get much better than this!
