Brief liquor selection notes

After a thread where I asked about places to track down various things, I've been visiting a bunch of liquor stores. I'm a little obsessed right now, actually. Here's my notes so far:

Wine House: good, strong selection. Not the cheapest or deepest, but strong. One of the places to find Charbay Vodka, a current favorite in the New World of Wonderous American Vodka.

Wine and Liquor Depot the Valley. *Superb* bourbon and scotch selection. Most rarities, most insanely high end place, best prices. Deeper than is believable. Vodka selection and rum selection: less so.

Silverlake Wine. Small, but carefully selected range. Some nice, lesser-seen things - Michter's, Black Maple Hill, others.

Beverage Warehouse. Very, very good. The best rum and the best vodka selection I've seen. insane vodka selection - lots of hard to find or I've-never-seen-it-before Eastern European vodkas. The only place where I found some agricole rhums, and the only place that stocks a good selection of the really, shockingly exceptional Van Gogh vodka range.

Bourbon has been the center of my soul, but there are new developments in vodka-as-deeply-flavorful-thing (I don't mean flavored vodkas), that are really exciting right now.
