Buffalo Trace has been readily available here in SW Ohio for the last few weeks. I've been hitting it hard (think Buffalo Jump Park), and wish that it was always on the shelf. Blanton's is still king for me, but price & availability makes BT a winner!

Checked OHLQ and it said that a store in my area had it in stock. Doesn't mean you'll see it on the shelf though. The liquor agency is in a grocery store, and the lady who runs it is a bourbon fan. She told me when they get whatever they get, they keep it behind the counter and if you come in and ask for it they will sell you a bottle. She said it's because people check the website and know it's in stock, so it sells out in no time anyway. I've never had it, but have heard that it's a really good 25 buck bottle!

You are correct! The site said they had it, but not on the shelf. I asked if they had it and she said they just got it off the pallet and they keep it behind the counter! It is a close second behind Blantons for me.

Tell her I don't believe they're allowed doing that...you can't 'hold' the whole order behind the counter...now if they just got it off the truck it's a different story but only for a certain amount of time...if the Ohio liquor site says it's in stock that doesn't mean you have to go in and ask for it...and I don't think the state would approve of that...that's bullshit...doesn't matter how quick it sells out.
You could have customers walking in there all day that checked the site and walk out empty handed just because it's NOWHERE to be found when the site says it's on the shelf...again, that's some bullshit.
That just reeks of employees snagging bottles for themselves, friends, and family.

Then why not open your mouth and ask about it?! It goes on a lot, especially with product that is very limited! Happens in the wine business too. You go to select retailers and say hey, I got some of this in, here's your allocation.

And like the lady told me, they order what they order, but they get what they get! She also told me that she's a fan of Bulleitt Bourbon. Maybe I'll try that the next time I'm there, since it's about the same price.

Only thing the State cares about is money. At my store, the good stuff is out when the store opens. He holds nothing back even after repeatable attempts by a certain employees' bribery... 😁 😁

Back on topic...I've heard Bulleitt is good also, I wanna try it.

Guy at the Ohio liquor in Giant Eagle Macedonia told me customers wait hours for the truck to come in to see if there was any Buffalo Trace on that week’s order! The few bottles that come in get snatched up quickly. I’ve bought some on line - 1 liter size! Decent deal but had to buy several bottles to make it a good deal. Also seen Buffalo trace in Costco stores in Michigan!
