I mean, I really need some Falernum, and rhum agricole and Carpano Antico and Punt E Mes, and my Junipero and Miller's Westbourne. Would I be better off at Park? (their summer hours kind of suck though). I will look up Panhandler -- never heard of it.
Brown spirits-wise, I am just looking for either a Stagg or Pappy, and maybe a new scotch - Caol Ila distillery would be my choice.
First off, let me correct a mistake. I mentioned a store in NYC called Panhandler, but the store I was thinking of was Warehouse Wines & Spirits. Broadway Panhandler is a very fine kitchen ware store, but not a liquor store. Warehouse, however, has a very good whisk(e)y collection and competitive pricing.
Second, for restocking go to Astor, for something more out of the ordinary go to Park Ave.
Third, you'll need a good bit of luck to find GTS or Pappy in the summer. They are generally fall releases and sell out pretty quick. I have some extra's lying around though...
