Good evening, y’all! It’s been a bit of a rough week here so far (I kinda feel like that’s the new normal in retail these days, amiright?) but I wanted to get something special out for y’all this week for Whiskey Wednesday tomorrow, what with the holiday weekend coming up and all. Please read thisContinue reading “Whiskey Wednesday: Buffalo Trace (and Friends) Edition”

Crown Royal 23-Year…Apple?!
Yup! Apparently, this is a thing. I honestly had no idea, but when a couple of my customers started asking for it and getting really excited, I had to look into it. You read it right: it’s a Crown Royal Apple (one of our most popular, best-selling flavored whiskies) but a special, highly-limited edition that’sContinue reading “Crown Royal 23-Year…Apple?!”
After Years of Waiting A Bourbon Industry Staple FINALLY Comes to Missouri!! (And it’s Priced Right, Too!)
Anyone that knows anything about bourbon knows Heaven Hill. They’re responsible for some of the most-recognized and most highly soft-after whiskies in America. I mean, who doesn’t know Evan Williams? It’s many people’s “bottom-shelf, on-a-budget go-to pour”. And why not? The quality is rock-solid, and it’s cheaper than dirt. When you have to ‘slum it’Continue reading “After Years of Waiting A Bourbon Industry Staple FINALLY Comes to Missouri!! (And it’s Priced Right, Too!)”
Whiskey Wednesday: An Ode to Talisker Storm Single Malt
We finally were able to get some more of this in; it’s on sale with the distributor in May, so we figured we needed to stock up, and what better time to talk about it than Whiskey Wednesday?? Talisker Storm was one of the original ‘big-name’ NAS (non-age-statement) releases that, at its initial time ofContinue reading “Whiskey Wednesday: An Ode to Talisker Storm Single Malt”
Whiskey Wednesday: I Give You My OATH…and Other Stuff, Too!
Honestly, I’m really bummed to do it this way (we had fun stuff planned), but we had call-ins today, we have corporate visitors, and we were already running super behind, so we’re just going to have to do this on a first-come, first-served basis. The fine print: see below for the bottles we have (andContinue reading “Whiskey Wednesday: I Give You My OATH…and Other Stuff, Too!”
Whiskey Wednesday Drop: Rieger’s Bottled-in-Bond Straight Bourbon

RYE Didn’t You Tell Us?! (Surprise Allocation Drop!)
This was a lovely surprise drop today, so major thanks to the good folks at Breakthru Beverage for hooking us up. The original go-round, we only scored a couple bottles of this, and they both sold off the counter before I could get a blog post up and then we had people asking for themContinue reading “RYE Didn’t You Tell Us?!

In addition to our regular stock of bourbons, from favorite marques to the best of the bottom shelf, we’ve got a couple of extra-special offerings for you today!

First of all, I just want to say that I am so, so sorry. We’ve been trying to get some kind of whiskey drawing/release/etc every couple of weeks on Wednesdays, even though allocations have almost completely dried up in the new year. Today. Was. Nuts. Nothing went the way it was supposed to, we wereContinue reading “Happy Whiskey…Thursday?”
