Ended up walking out with bottles of Glen Levitt 12 first fill and the Glenmorangie 10 year instead -- will continue to search though, just wanting to know if there were any little hidden gems that I might not have found yet
Weller special reserve you can get at specs easily. Antique and 12 is harder to get.
I haven't seen Blanton's in a year that wasnt waiting for someone to pick up. I snagged a 12 a lil while back from a place I buy from. Eagle rare will pop up at specs.
Theres a little liqour store at 2920 and stuebner. He keeps a good selection in the back but he will straight up tell you that it's for his regulars. You have to buy cheaper/easy to get stuff and be on his list (he actually has a list) and he goes through and calls people that are looking for bottles from his list as they get delivered.

Had some wathens single barrel tonight. Read a lot of mixed reviews and had never heard of it but thought it was pretty good. Also got several bottles of eagle rare.

What did you get? I guess best stuff is subjective, but most expensive is the Cowboy bourbon.


I have everything they make from small batch to cowboy bourbon and i love every bit of it. Hands down my favorite bourbon.

He said I got the single barrel. From what I understand
Top 3 are Cowboy, Balmoreah and Single Barrel
No idea what they cost regularly. I got two bottles for $100.

Two bottles of single barrel for $100 is a steal. I'll give you $70 for one of them

I showed up at ten this morning to try and snag a bottle and they were out already. Said they sold that case, the eagle rare, and their Blanton within less than an hour yesterday.

At this rate, Iíll never get a bottle unless I have someone on the inside lol

They exaggerated a little. I saw the post here about it an hr after posted and told a co worker to go by. He snagged one and said there were 5-6 left at that point. I’m sure they were gone before close though

That guy will straight up rip you off, always has! He tried to sell me a bottle of 4 roses single barrel for $65 one time. Michterís for $75, and Blantonís for $125. I canít afford to be one of his regulars...or wonít rather.

Hit Spec’s this afternoon, gal at the register told me they’ve been out since Tuesday on all the hard to gets. Decided I needed to replace a bottle of four roses anyways and they had buffalo trace on the shelf so I got that too. Started talked with the guy who ran that department and he had a stash in the back so I scored a bottle of eagle rare

Was looking for a Bottle of Angels Envy today at Specs. They didn't have any on the shelf so I asked the associate working if she had any more. She said yes but they keep it in the back because 1 man will come in here and buy every bottle they have. So I scored 2 bottles and will be pouring some tonight,
