Bhm - Where do you buy your spirits?
I understand that the minimum pricing is set by ABC in Alabama, right? With that said, are there any particular area liquor stores that have great selections of quality bourbons, whiskey and/or scotch? I know that ABC carriers a number of call brands, but not really high ones and you have to order a whole case for other items not on their price chart?
I always use the state store. But it probably depends on the WHICH state store that you go to (e.g. choose a Mtn Brook one over a Roebuck one). I saw a Pappy 20 year recently on the shelf (it was a first!). But they routinely have Makers Mark, Knob Creek & Bookers. Admittedly, I'm a fairly recent bourbon convert, so maybe these aren't high-end enough for you?
