    Re: Van Winkle bottles....Spring allocation

    They are both somewhat scarce around here, point of fact I believe almost all my Van Winkle purchases over the years were made while traveling out of State.

    Re: Van Winkle bottles....Spring allocation

    I may have to make a special trip up to MI this Spring in an effort to nab another bottle or two after having my first sip of the 15 this past weekend.

    God I hope so too, especially for the 15's.

    They also said "All 20 & 23 year old Pappy is still S-W. This is the last year of the 20yr."

    That is the first I have read that, thought it was suppose to be just the 15 likely. Guess ill have to lock down a couple bottles of the 20 on my next order in March.

    War Damn Eagle above too!

    Where did you see that it's the last release of the 20? SW closed in 92, so 20 years would bring us to 2012, not taking in consideration on Julian bottling a bunch to allocate out years after, as he is doing with the 15 year.

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.
    I find the 20 to be quite different from the 15, so you may want to open that bottle you're holding. As for availability, since the 15 is 1/2 the price of the 20, it soars off the shelf. As for the 20 sitting on shelves, unlike Scotch drinkers, Bourbon drinkers are famously frugal.

    Definitely agree that the 15 and 20 have two completely different profiles. Love both of them. Here in CT the pricing was usually around:
    PVW 15 - $69
    PVW 20 - $110

    I love the 20 and feel it's worth the extra coin to acquire some

    I'm with you. And even if the 23yr was the same price as the 20, I would buy the 20 every single time. Worth every penny.
