Hey Hounds,
Anyone seen Elmer T. Lee on the shelves at their favorite well-stocked liquor store?

    Glad to see this post is still on its legs. Pun intended.

    I found Elmer T. Lee at Ramirez. I'll definitely check out Beverage Warehouse and K&L. Never been to either.

      Many of the guys at Beverage Warehouse are big on whiskey. It's qorth your time to get to know them if you are as well.

      Wine House has a nice selection. They also have bourbon tastings once in a while....

          Yes, now showing at K&L (though I forget the search in LA never includes K&L in Hollywood, only Redwood City). Also Wine Exchange in Orange. Both less than Beverage Warehouse.

            for what's it worth, the redwood city k and l will ship (for free) anything in their stock down to hollywood and let you know when it's there.

              some of us need that bourbon TODAY, though.

              but yes, K&L's free inventory relocation system is the total tits.

          Showing on wine-searcher pro within 20 miles of 90028:
          - Beverage Warehouse
          - 20/20
          - Woodland Hills Wine
          - Mission Liquor (pas/glendale)
          - Ramirez
          - Mel & Rose

          Least expensive to most top to bottom.

          Good luck.

            Since bourbon and scotch have become very popular once again, it's hard to find spirits like those from Buffalo Trace - they don't stay in stock very long. Beverage Warehouse has a huge selection of bourbons, but I rarely see the good stuff from Buffalo Trace. I've never asked but maybe they might keep a few in the back? Wally's also carries a good selection, but I think they move the premium popular stuff just as fast if not faster than Beverage Warehouse.
