    FYI, Spring bottling for all brands are being bottled as I type. Allocation will be shipped out early March per Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery depending if all the bottling goes as planned. SWEEEEET!

    Re: Van Winkle bottles....Spring allocation

    Great news, although it won't make much of a difference for me, since we won't get it in OH. The last time I found it was about 2 years ago when Binny's had it on their website. Since then, I've been unsuccessful in finding any.

    VW said that the PVW 15 is a SW distilliate for those that have wondered.

    Like the 15 needs any more hysteria.

    Well, I doubt it. Someone asked about whether the PVW 15 was a S-W distillate on Facebook, and I said that it was. Someone from ORVW (Preston?) then chimed in saying that it wasn't, but then they came back an hour later and said, whoops, that I was right, and that it was. I hate to harp on this, but I really think that stumping the distiller has to be worth a prize. I wonder what the prize should be? (If it is Preston, I apologize... I hope I didn't get you in trouble with the Old Man!)

    But what was really interesting was the message from ORVW, as if we haven't parsed all of this enough:

    David, 15yr is still SW too. I was thinking in terms of barrel dates but we bottled up a couple of years worth of inventory last year so that the barrels wouldn't get any older.
    That leads me to believe that they're going to release more into the future. This makes me feel happy in the feelings.

    Well, if we speak with a soft voice while hightailing it down to the allocated dealers with plastic in hand to make a reserve purchase maybe we will get there before the word gets out.

    Re: Van Winkle bottles....Spring allocation

    I have only ever managed to get hold of one bottle of PVW 15. It sits unopened in my bunker for fear that I'll never be able to nab another. I am not a hoarder by any means, but really am expecting this to be something special after trying the 20. So weird that the 20 is so much easier to come by than the 15. My local has 2 cases of the 20 right now! And no i am not sharing who that is unless you want to PM me.

    I plan on grabbing every PVW 15 that I can with this release. If I could score two-three bottles I would sleep very well at night.
