My local sources have dried up. When Hiram Walker completed their distillery in Peoria it was the largest distillery in the world. Their products remained popular in Illinois and sold out quickly.

I was able to buy three cases from Mission - they can ship to Illinois. I'm still looking for sources, Dad's not that old...

I can check down here in NJ but getting it to Illinois would be another problem. Let me know if you cant find any up by you.

Did a little checking
There are two major liquar distributors in NJ
The rep for Fedway never heard of it (had them check and its uavailable to them)
The rep for R&R said they havent carried it in NJ in 10+ years. Its unavailable but said that could just be to him in NJ. He had a couple suggestions.
He seems to think it is not discontinued as a product but distribution has been limited, so it may be discontinued in your area.
Check with a Virginia distributor; They drink plenty of Bourbon down there and would have the widest selection.
Check with a Texas distributor; ??? (not sure why)
Check a "Class 6" store (military) their distribution channels are different and you might have luck finding it there.
Try "Ten High", also Hiram Walker product and very similar to Deluxe.

Thats what I got......
If you want me to turn up the heat and will commit to a case or more quantity I will have them find it if its out there. LMK

Cheers

The Walker's DeLuxe ad below provides the boating tie-in. Now THAT'S gutsy!
Give these people a call http://www.specsonline.com/ 888-526-8787, this is the biggest store I have ever seen, about the size of a city block, lots of older stuff there that doesn't show on their websearch.
