I do know a couple of places in Mass, maybe they're the same places you're going to.

    I've never seen a Van Winkle product in NH. The place I saw these has had the Lot B's before but never the PVW15's. I think they have them now as a result of my asking for some a long while back. I'm still debating on getting them. I know that the prices have skyrocketed again on these and I may never get more at that price (or any price perhaps).

    I'm getting most of my stuff in Western MA (Julio's too if I can get out there), RI, NY (Albany area), & Western NH. Any other locales you want to suggest?

    Looks like you have a much wider area that you purchase in than me, James -- I should be asking you where I should shop . . . I'm up here in the Bourbon Desert of Maine . . . I sometimes make it to the NH stores (as I said, they get one VW shipment a year, all allocated to the flagship store) & more rarely than that, make it to Julio's. I've found a couple places outside of Boston on 128 that I can find some stuff fairly reasonably, too, but don't get down there much.

    I was told we could special order cases through NH. Maybe we should go in with some folks in our area. They could ship to a store near you and a store near me. Just a thought.... I'd take 3 PVW15's if they were $50....

    I've already talked about this with a whiskey buddy nearby . . . I'd be more interested in the Lot 'B' since it's only $41, but I'll definitely keep it in mind. I'll also let you know if/when the VWs show up this year after I get mine . . . it's a pretty tight window of about 3 weeks when they're around, but they get the Lot 'B', PVW 15 & PVW20.

    Thanks, I'll do the same when I see 'em!

    I had an interesting visit to a local store today. I'm going to post a note about it in another thread.

    Oh, it has to do with passing something up.

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    Passed on a Pappy 23 for 180. I have one (unopened) and so while the price is nice, I can't justify it. Also, a couple of Pappy 20's for $74 which is also great but again, I have 3 bunkered and I'm just not drinking it like I used to at those prices.

    Wow, those ae great prices! Even I might grab a PVW20 for $74 !!!

    I passed up a EWSB '97 & '98 today. They've been sitting there for a while, so I doubt they're moving anytime soon, but I did want them. I can't get by the $28 price tag on this when EC12 is $18.

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    Passed on a WR Seasoned Oak at $89, the owner offered it to me at $75 but I still passed. He also had some Staggs at $69 and PVW15 at $69, ORVW 10/107 $39 etc... all at the high end of the pricing I usually see.

    Passed on everything.

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    Not sure if I can call it passed up but I did leave them on the shelf. I ran across 2 bottles of "Kentucky Silk" today, never seen them before so I inspected the bottle says natural flavors on it but it was 60 proof? Bottling was from Frankfort but something about Ohio on it as well, whatever the case may be I left both of them on the shelf. I rarely drink 80 proofer so 60 was way out of the question.
