    Does anyone here have readily available access to Blantons? One of the admin assistants at my office is looking for one for her husband and it’s pretty hard to find here for less than $100, if at all. I’m not sure what MSRP is, but if anyone is able to get a couple of bottles, I’d gladly pay shipping plus some extra for a finder’s fee/your trouble.

    I don’t have a good line all the time, but I typically can get to my local store in West Nashville in time to get a Blantons when they do their BT drops. If you don’t have any other luck, I’ll try to grab one next time. They usually drop every Wednesday.

    Have a buddy coming over Friday that wants to taste a bunch of stuff so he can decide on a “special bottle” for himself and his groomsmen. For the life of me I can’t think of a bottle he can get on the secondary right now that’s “worth” the price.

    I’m hoping I can sell him on a little book or ECBP. Everything else seems to be absurdly inflated.

    MSRP is like $45, I’ve only seen it for $50 and thought it was okay at that price.

    I wouldn’t :twocents:

    not braving. I live here, but in a small oasis that is somewhat insulated from the lawnguylen stereotype.

    FYI you can order straight from them and pay $15 shipping. I'd never seen it in North Carolina so I just ordered a couple of the straight bourbon and small batch so I could try them. Enjoyed both.

    wow that is awesome. I had no clue you could do that. I wish more brands would do that. I'm ordering a small batch now. The uncut unfiltered is out of stock.
    EDIT: they don't ship to my address :/

    Not sure how MS works but in North Carolina we are state ran, the stores here though can order a case of anything that is not allocated. The SW Uncut isn't allocated so a group of my friends here ordered two cases a couple weeks ago. They just came in, looking forward to giving it a try.

    Yea, it's about the only cool thing about ABC Liquor board here. They basically consider every bourbon allocated so this might be the only bourbon it's worth doing for.

    Not 100% sure as my friend did it but it wasn't online. Think you just go in store and they handle it for you. You also don't have to take the whole case, you can just take one if you want and they'll put the rest out on the shelf.

    this is correct but I will say that not every store even knows this an option so you may get some blank stares depending on the store

    I was looking at our legislative bill re: ordering liquor and it sounds like it is more about local liquor stores can use third party delivery companies to deliver liquor to people's houses. I'm not sure it covers ordering liquor online through distilleries. I'm going to talk to one of the local legislators about it and see what he knows. If I'm right that would be lame.

    Got mighty lucky on an U/U today at what I assume is retail.

    Let’s have a great weekend.
