I'm not too terribly far from you (NC). For instance, Buffalo Trace doesn't come by too often...it'll show up every so often at the counter but the bottles are limited/first come/first serve. As far as Old Forrester, it depends on the year. I see it all the time but a certain year may not be as accessible as another year of Old Forrester...Go figure

Agreed here too...Four Roses was okay...was a little hard to get into. Still trying to find which Basil Hayden I like too (Dark Rye was a hell no...port wine has no biz in bourbon, lol). On the other hand, one that caught me way off guard was Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Select. Actually pretty damn good.
