If you're a good customer, and it's an independent store (as opposed to a mega-chain) they might give you a call or put one aside for you when it comes in.
I've drunk any number of bourbons in the $30-55 price range and enjoyed them but I wouldn't travel 300 miles for any of them. Unfortunately we lost the last good independent here 4 years ago and have to rely on the big chains. There's a place in Pensacola where I shop when I'm in town but anything like this they would draw names for the right to purchase.
