      Wine and Liquor Depot in Van Nuys
      www.wineandliquordepot.com

      Mission Liquors in Pasadena
      www.missionliquors.com

      Most BevMos will have a bottle or two as well.

      For all of these, you should call first as they don't always have all Pappy expressions in stock.

        thanks. Wine and Liquor Depot sounds perfect.

        Curious to try it. Been hearing lots of good things for a while. finally finished my bottle of Knob so looking to refill with something new.

          You're in for a treat, but a Pappy is going to cost you a lot more than a Knob Creek. Unless you're willing to shell out, you may want to start with Old Rip Van Winkle 10 year old 107 proof.

            I heard the 15 year wasn't too bad, like $40ish. I'll save the 20 year for my Christmas list : )

              the 15 year will cost much more than that.
              Red Carpet in Glendale regularly carries pappy as well.

        In addition to the places mentioned in other posts, K&L also often carries it, though some of the other places mentioned will probably have a wider selection and are closer to the areas you mention.

          although out of your sweet spot, beverage warehouse in MDR carries it.

            Have you seen it recently, Wil? Not on their online http://www.beveragewarehouse.com/ bourbon list.

              haven't been by in about 7mo's, but i saw 2 bottles there on my last visit. i bought one of them. lols.

              the good thing about bev warehouse is that you can call them to verify and if they do not have the item in stock they will order some (if they can).

                Curiosity got the better of me and I spoke to one of the inventory mavens at Beverage Warehouse and he said that what he has in stock is the 23 year old for $219 or the one in the "fancy" decanter for $350. I guess the younger, less expensive stuff is harder to find and harder to keep in stock.

            I hesitate to mention this because I have yet to make a reservation, but Wine house is having a bourbon tasting on Nov 16

            http://www.winehouse.com/product.php?...

            (is wine house not in the database? It's right next to the 405 on 2311 Cotner)

              Found it finally after separating the "Wine" from the "House"

                  I tried to link to Pane e Vino the other day and got 10 results from around the world (literally) but couldn't get the LA one to pop up on the list....(oh, look - NOW it works... lol)

                for what it's worth I did a big price comparison on a bunch of spirits a couple months back, Wine House came out significantly cheaper overall with Beverage Warehouse second and Wally's third. Didn't do Bevmo but my experience is that it's actually higher than the first two. Generally if I'm looking for a specific booze, I'll do Wine House first, if Im looking for a wide selection of obscure ones, I'll hit Beverage Warehouse.

                That said, I was at Wine House a couple of weeks back and fairly positive they had the expensive Pappy but don't remember seeing the cheaper ones. Of course calling ahead would solve the question.
