OK my understanding is 1700 bottles can we calculate what percentage of that the SB.com crew has purchased??

I collected 9 bottles as of today. Most are the 15-1C

Lets hear it Dawn how many you got and the rest of ya'll??

Tony, I believe the estimate was 1700, but there only ended up being 1442 bottles produced.

4 of them headed to Oz
(Customs currently have them:smiley_acbt::hot:)

One was enough for me. The regular Single Barrel and Small Batch are my drinkers. This one is for the shrine...

What was the barrel # Dane??

OK....Jeremy's box has 4 in it.

My box has 13 plus one in the shrine and one open....so I have 15.
Nine of which are different barrels!! :woohoo::woohoo:

And, I'm still holding one for someone.

barturtle

I bought 9, but 6 of those went to other members here, so they can claim them...so put me down for 3...all different barrels.

This was a drunken post. Please forgive me.

But I still have zero bottles.

I got one. I saw one at Old Town Thursday and four at the gift shop on Cox's Creek yesterday, so all you need to do is visit Kentucky.

(There was still a crowd in the gift shop where Jim Rutledge was signing bottles when I saw the four, so some of those may be gone now.)

I count 56. Thats still a small percentage of 1442 (3.9%)

Yup. 4.6% of total

I don't think that's a small percentage in context. That's about one out of every twenty bottles produced purchased by a few dozen readers of this forum.

In theory I've got 4.
Two from the Barturtle
Two haven't arrived yet.
I'm not sure I get to keep them all, though.

76 and counting.

Has anyone else opened one yet? I blame Oscar but I've had two glasses from the 15-1C again tonight. Great choice on one to open!

Hey Oscar if you want another glass from this bottle you may need to come back soon it's going quick :drink:

There are lots of member who haven't responded with actual numbers, including me......my guess is that members of this board bought 10% of the total production.

If you're not thinking about whiskey or women 100% of the time, you're not concentrating.

Thanks Randy. I hope your right but if you don't participate we'll never really know now will we???

Whose tried it? Is it worth $115 on ebay? I'm hoping the 12 yr old SB will be available in illinois next month.

luv2hunt
10-29-2007, 21:58
No, I wouldn't pay $115 on e-bay. It's still available in KY for $60-$65

camduncan
10-29-2007, 23:36
$115 is cheap compared to what we've paid to get bottles through Customs and into Australia.... $115 is very cheap :shocked:

"Is it worth $115.00 on eBay?"

I have said it before and I'll say it again,....

Bourbon will get you through times of no money, better than money will get you through times of no bourbon.

Really? That low? With as many members as we have, and the fact that we knew in advance of release, you would think we would get at least double that...heck, Dawn alone accounts for over 1%...

Just a note.
At least 70% of the people at the distillery, buying the Rutledge during festval, were NOT SB.com members.
I saw lots of buttles, hundreds, leave the gift shop with muggles. (non-sb.com folk)

I'm wondering what the percentage of bottles that were distributed vs sold at the distillery.

Well we are now at 105...No Timothy I did not miscount this time, a friend brought me 2 more last night, not remebering the bottling now. I'll blame that on a half empty Saz 18.

I was unable to obtain a bottle of this but I was able to get a pour of it from the charity tasting table at Whiskyfest for $20. It was good, but it lacked the kick I was expecting. If I come across a reasonably priced bottle of this sometime I'll buy it.

Put me down for 3 of this great 2x 17-1f and one 17-1c. I am really enjoying the 17-1f as it is almost 1/2 gone.

This thread makes me cry. A new law in KY needs to be passed to allow distilleries to sell and ship anywhere in the US.

This thread makes me cry. A new law in KY needs to be passed to allow distilleries to sell and ship anywhere in the US.

But they already do, through distributors and retail outlets, based on the simple laws of supply and demand, there simply isn't enough supply to meet demand. Every distillery would love to be able to have enough stock to put on shelves across the country and world, but they also don't want to have the oversupply issues they had in the 70s and 80s.

Phischy
11-02-2007, 17:10
Unless I'm horribly mistaken, I cannot order at bottle of the 40th through any outlet in California. This also goes hand in hand with my gripe about export-only bottlings.

I picked up 4 bottles in KY last month. Two for me, two for my bro.

barturtle

Distilleries are allowed to sell, through legal channels, to any state they see fit; however, as I mentioned, they are limited by supply. Four Roses has decided, to better serve the customers that it can supply for, it needs to limit its distribution. While none of us are happy when this happens, there is still no law against them selling in any state they want to. However, direct shipping is, and looks likely to remain, illegal. In any case, direct shipping would still go through the 3 tier system (producer, distributor, retailer) and the channel is sold out...because supply doesn't meet demand. All direct shipping laws in other states are there for small producers, and no distilleries in KY currently meet the standards set by such laws.

ACDetroit

Well 114 as of tonight. It's 30 minutes to 3rd shift. All aboard!!

Tony

barturtle
11-02-2007, 19:11
Let me go ahead and correct myself:

Direct Shipping is from the producer to the consumer, and is allowed in limited cases in some states, usually involving wine, and most states require that the winery be small enough that a distributor would not be willing/able to properly serve them. Some even require that you visit the winery to make the purchase. This is illegal in KY. But it doesn't go through a traditional 3 tier system.

Also illegal in KY is shipping out of state from retailers to consumers, this is not what is referred to as direct shipping. This does go through the traditional 3 tier system.

Is the 40th still able to be obtained or are they all gone? I've been searching all over and cannot come up with any. I found this forum and it looks as though you all have a lot of knowledge on this particular bourbon.

How far are you willing to drive? Ten days ago I saw some bottles in the gift shop at Cox's Creek.

Haven't opened them yet, but we may do so soon. All four are from barrel 17-1D, I believe.
