where to buy Bourbon? spec. Elmer T. Lee

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

  1. 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.

    1. 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.

          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.

          1. re: revets2

            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.

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

          1. 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.
