    It's readily available in AA. I picked up a bottle today to make sure. Need some?

    Runs about 35 here in KC. We had an abundant supply. A freind and I grabbed up most of them. In the next week or so, the new batch will be hitting the shelves. Hopefully my rye will be coming too.

    Appears sporadically around No KY then usually disappears rapidly. (The upside to living in KY is access to virtually all bourbons; the downside is that there are a lot of discriminating bourbon drinkers who quickly clean out the good stuff.)

    Maybe I need to get out more or to different stores.

    Added: I have a bunkered supply so I'm not looking too hard.

    The only bottle I've ever bought of this was in 2008. I recollect paying about $35. It was the only store in Oregon where I ever saw it, and they haven't had any for a least a year now.

    The number on the front label is A2144. 08 on the bottom of the bottle.

    I find it to be too woody and dry. This is strange, because I've always liked other expressions of VW. Wondering if it was an off batch.

    Rather than dump it, I vat it with other wheaters. That's where about half my bottle of MM 46 went. Now it's back to using OWA.

    Got to say I haven't seen this for under $49 in Florida for many years....and SoFla is somewhat known for cheaper booze prices.

    Flew to NC this morning and carried the bottle with me to share with colleagues here (the ABC system in NC is pretty limited). Of course I forgot I could not bring this carry-on so security sent me back to check my bag. A $40 bottle quickly became $65 dollars...

    Re: Old Rip Van Winkle 10yr 107 proof.

    I lived in Durham for almost 14 years. Met my wife here and 2 of my kids were born here. I only get back every couple years or so, but there are lots of memories. However, I usually carry a bottle of decent bourbon with me because I also remember the ABC system.

    Re: Old Rip Van Winkle 10yr 107 proof.

    Well I ended up picking up the 10yr 107 ORVW, along with the 15yr and the 20yr for $238 w/tax in Atlanta. Will be trying them all tonight. I appreciate the help, I figured why not as I have not seen many bottles of each around here.
