    Sales have exceeded supply. A drought is now occurring. Find it, hold it, for it could be 3 years until you see more of it.

    I have 2 bottles. I want more.

    1. Economy/unemployment rate is causing people to drink more?
    or
    2. Poor sales forecasting by the company
    or
    3. Great marketing idea :)
    or

    I usually get my booze at Dirty John's in Iowa City, and when they have none and tell me to find it and hold it, I tend to take them seriously.

    They opened up the market to Chicago Land , increasing sales so that they are simply running out. This stuff takes 5 years to age ,so when a rush on what you thought would hold you over until more has been properly crafted, you have a supply problem. I'm sure we will get a 10 year version in a few years also.

    I know the SuperTarget in Urbandale has it. Pretty sure Hy Vee carries it as well.

    I've always thought it was a little too pricey, maybe its just me. Yeah the novelty is cool but is it worth that much?

    The guy who runs the liquor dept. at John's Grocery in iowa City. I have a bottle signed by the owners of the distillery obtained when they came and did a tasting at John's. Since he is in direct contact with distribution, I'm sure he knows what he is talking about. If he didn't, it would be on the shelves.

    Go buy every last bottle. You can sell them next year as Christmas gifts and make a huge profit. :wink:

    $32 for top shelf isn't too bad. Maybe the price should be lower in Iowa, but in Chicago and surrounding look-alike villages, the pay anywhere from 40-50 for the stuff.

    I'm not arguing with the fact that its pretty good but I still think $32 is steep for booze made in Iowa. I mean 10-12 year imported scotch is in the 35-40 price range.
