Find a liquor store who maintains a list of “good customers”.
When the Blantons arrives they call you and you pick it up RIGHT AWAY so they don’t call the next person on the list. They can do the same with Pappy’s but that’s a helluva price jump.

haven't bought many bottles lately but was down at Bud n' Alley's in Seaside a couple of weeks ago and they had a nice selection. Stagg Sr for about $30 a pour which wasn't too bad for bar prices.

Pennsylvania's liquor is sold only through state owned stores, so getting limited or small batch bottles of bourbon goodness is through the luck of a lottery draw. They will do several different Limited Release Lottery drawings for PA residents only when something comes out. The current lottery had six or seven possible spirits, some with as few as two bottles available and some as many as 120 or so. I submitted my entry, as I always do. Just got the notification that I was selected for a Weller 12 year! Price is regular PA retail too, so it's I think $49.95 for the bottle. Plus PA tax, shipping and handling on top. Not too bad, I am happy. This is the 4th time out of about a dozen lotteries that I have been selected. The first was an Old Rip Van Winkle that was shared with friends at my daughter's wedding last April, the second was a Taylor 4-grain that is still unopened, and then I hit a George T. Stagg during the Buffalo Trace Heritage lottery. Still waiting on opening that one too. I have been dying to get a Weller 12, when I travel out of state I am always looking but never seem to find any, so this is excellent!! Makes up for a crappy week so far!

Words of wisdom!

Had a small bit of good fortune this weekend. I was out in the Philly area and poking around on the PA LCB web site, you can search for inventory. We get Blanton's in dribs and drabs but there's no clear time of year that I can tell when the state might get some in. I checked and had a few scattered returns of single bottles here or there but when I checked them out to verify in stock, was not having any luck.
Leaving the area, I went west to grab some dinner and popped into the state store near West Chester, where the web site had shown one bottle in stock. I didn't see any on the shelf, and so I asked at the counter and the woman there walked to the back office area and brought back one boxed bottle of the stuff. She had it set aside, was the last bottle from the single case they had gotten in. So I was able to get that.
Being curious on the ride home, I checked out the dump date on the bottle when I stopped for fuel.....6/4/2019. My birthday! I just thought that was a really neat coincidence. Smile
