Note from reviewer – Dean’s is great and I highly recommend stopping in. I highly recommend more people make use of the ease in special ordering bottles. You’ll have a hard time trying to special order a bottle of the big ones (Blanton’s, Weller, special releases, etc), but for example, I’ve used it previously for Michter’s Barrel Proof, and ordered a bottle of Balcone’s on Sunday.

You’ll notice there multiple bottles that are shown as “Available, could not confirm price.” This is due to two things. 1 – Dean’s uses sticker price tags, so they’re hard to see from a distance. 2 – Every clerk I’ve ever met at Dean’s is a really great person, so you start chatting, and next thing you know you forgot to take notes.
