    Tonight's selection. Stopped by the pharmacy after work this afternoon and thought that it couldn't hurt to have a quick look at the whiskey aisle. I was right ... cheers !

    CVS down the street from Stein Brewing by chance? That one has both it and Antique fairly regularly. Used to have the big bottles too. Those damn 1.75s of 107 have become a ghost though. Great price too. Like $50. Used to be where I bought my Blantons because it was always in stock for the last 5 years. Nobody in town drank it.

    That's the one ... I have noticed that some things move a little slow over there.

    I meant Rite Aid, but same difference. Yeah. Not many people realize it’s a state store.

    Funny ... I honestly couldn't tell you if it was a Rite Aid, CVS or Walgreens. I just know they have whiskey, definitely not advertised though.

    From what I can gather, you guys in Ohio get so much more Weller than almost anywhere else in the country. Not sure why that is, but you're lucky! We get occasional drops of OWA here, but they fly off the shelves in a matter of hours. What do you think of this Special Reserve, though? I haven't been a fan of it.

    My old man is visiting Texas and sent a little care package my way. Pretty tasty stuff. Nice licorice/anise and caramel notes to it. Cheers all!

    We are a control state. Good and bad. Good for having more of an equal opportunity to get stuff, but bad with prices. Also, they took a lot of things like Weller 12 and made them raffle only. We had a new guy (a whiskey man) recently take over at the Division of Liquor though and he has been focused on getting back/more KY distro and he has definitely done that. Buffalo Trace drops are pretty regular now and he hand selects a lot of barrels.

    It’s crazy when you compare any place to KY though. Can literally drink just about everything at any bar and any gas station or store you stop at will have 3x better selection than the best place in your home state.

    As far as Reserve, it is much better than regular Makers as far as wheated bourbons, and a nice daily drinker at $22-24. I prefer Antique myself, but I also don’t love too many 90 proof or under these days.

    If you think I’m polluting this thread now, you should be glad it wasn’t around in my beer off season. I know I am.

    I can buy easily the EC 12YO however the Age Statement Label is now on the side of the bottle. How does that one differ from your pictured bottle.

    It doesn’t. They just went the same route as a lot of others the last few years and dropped, or became ambiguous with ages. @Highbrow mentioned how this was going to take place 3-4 years ago. He is a better wealth of information than I.

    Different bottle/different label, no age statement. I've only bought one bottle of the newer stuff over a year ago.
