This gent works at the Beverages and More! store here in Modesto, CA, and while he was able to pull up on computer which stores in the chain MIGHT have a bottle, all indications are there is to be no more of that heavenly George T. Stagg.
Now, maybe that means for this year no more is to be shipped, as I realize Stagg is a very small batch bourbon, and last year the Bevmo! chain received only 3 bottles for ALL of Califonia. HOWEVER, this might also mean Stagg is to no more be produced, ever
I'm not entirely sure which is the case, and I do hope it's the former, but I figured I'd let anyone else who has found the yummy-goodness that is Stagg know about my experience.
Hopefully for me I'll have in my clutches a bottle this week.
It was so hard to get this year, I was hoping it might be easier next year. Fingers crossed next year will be a bumper batch.
The good news is there will be another allocation next year, so I'm sorry for my "Chicken Little" impression that started this thread.
I paid $45 US for my bottle of Stagg, and while I was at the store picking up that bttle, I couldn't let it go home ALONE, so I threw a bottle of Lagavulin OB, Redbreast, White Horse 12 YO (something new to try for me ) AND the snack-size Cabo Wabo Reposado into the basket before checking out, plus two bottles of water for good measure (carrying all that booze, and me thinking about it, was making me THIRSTY )
I forgot to mention, Stagg is bottled at 129 Proof
