I guess this marginally belongs here. A few days ago I was thinking I'd like some Buffalo Trace Bourbon Cream for the holidays. After a fruitless search of my usual haunts, I finally got on the Total Wine website, thinking surely they'd have some. Nada anywhere in my vicinity, and they won't ship store-to-store for some reason. Geez, it's almost like trying to track down a bottle of Blanton's.  After more calling around, I finally located a mom & pop liquor store nearby that had some for about $5 more than I'm used to seeing. Never realized that this was such a hot commodity.

Fun afternoon:

What did you think of the Old Tub? I just noticed some for sale near me.

Let’s just say I’m glad I only have one bottle of it.  While it had the signature peanut note that Beam is famous for, it was wrapped up in a peppery dill and lemon note.  Not pleasant overall.  

If you can get Distillers Cut for MSRP, I’d highly recommend it.  I’m buying as much of it as I can.  Easily one of the best QPRs in the bourbon world.

Good to know, thanks!

Finally scored a bottle of my favorite Rock Hill Farms which is made by Buffalo Trace. None of the big boys ever have it. Found it sitting alone all dusty in a small Mom and Pop shop. Told me it had been there for about six month! Sipping slowly

Nice! When Elijah Craig announced the end of their 12-year statement, coincidentally right after I discovered it I enjoyed it, I scoured every Mom & Pop shop within 30 miles looking for more. Found less than a case, but I still have a couple.
