Well, it's official. I've just received word that my allocation is 9 bottles total.
Now I know my Saz guy is awesome and has done all he can to be good to me so I'm not bitching at him by any means. It's just sad. I have over 25 folks on a waiting list, and there's gonna be a lot of unhappy people, many of them true bourbon lovers. At least I've had some really dear souls be honest and tell me that they have found bottles and have asked to be pulled from the list. THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY!
I found out today that another retailer (in Manhattan...won't name names but the name implies it's on a street that it really isn't
) has been making calls saying they got their stash. They are selling their Stagg for $70. Unless my invoice arrives on Monday and shocks me, my price will not be crazy.
Maybe I can start trading some of my other stash for some Stagg found elsewhere. Now that would be pathetic, wouldn't it!
