Yea, you have to sign up in person at one of the stores, and you stick with that store when it comes to asking for anything. If you want another EH or something i might be able to grab it for you and you can get it when you're here in July.

Thanks for the details man, that would be awesome, or if you're able to nab another bottle of Blanton's. It's a shame I can't sign up remotely, but given the program/control they put into place, that makes sense. I'll have to ping a few of my friends out there and see if I can convince them to go to their closest Binny's and start hoarding for me for the next few months. lol.

Shit it nuts out here, people are vultures. They just introduced that system with Binnys last month because people are flocking to all their stores and grabbing up everything when they get shipments. Kind of sucks cause i used to get multiples of what I wanted at my local Binny's, now i can only get one a month.

The Crystal Lake Walmart did an event that was really well organized. They had it in a dedicated area out near automotive with a line setup and you could get 1 bottle per trip through the line. My co-worker got there after I did and left with a Blantons, 3 EH Taylor, and an Eagle Rare. I didn't feel like lapping the line again so I just left with these two.

They also had the Woodford Historic Barrel 18 Year which I debated, but I figured I'd get another EH Taylor to replenish when I kill my current one instead.

The amazing this is that people wait in line for Blantons and ER. Both are average bourbons at best.

I do love me some EH though.

I agree that both the Blanton's and standard EH small batch are pretty overrated, especially the Blantons, but at retail I'll never pass on it to keep around. I had a bottle of Blanton's gifted to me from an account at my last job and I was keeping it around, so it was nice to get a fresh bottle and to finish the last one. I also have an EH straight rye and small batch already, so it was good to get another so I can sip on the other one a little more knowing I have a replacement.

The line started moving at 9:00 and I was out of there by 9:20 with my two bottles, so it was a pretty quick process and worthwhile. I didn't show up until right at 9 and was towards the rear of the line on my first pass.
