    I just called sales at RNDC SC and asked what day it would be in the stores and they told me. So, I showed up on that day.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I will see if I can save the PVW for when you come over.

    Sadly, they are playing allocation games here in Dallas, and it's not so easy. They say it's "in house" but no orders have been processed yet - even though all the stores have ordered it.

    Games... all games.

    It may have to do with who the local RNDC sales manager is as to whether he wants to be informative. Also Columbia only has 4 stores that carry Pappy so that makes it easier.

    I can't believe it's been 3 weeks since they got the shipment

    Don't know if someone already mentioned it in here, but Julio's in Westborough, MA is using a lottery system for the chance to buy some VW this spring. While funds prevented me from entering for any more than a single bottle of 12 year, I just got the e-mail that I'm a winner! Hey, I'll take what I can get.

    I was waiting for my account to be activated before I could post this, but... YES, the NY stores have gotten in their shipments. I went last week and picked up some of the PVW 15 and lot B. Most of the places I checked were selling out quick, but Warehouse (by union square) had the most pappy bottles I think I could ever expect to see, just in plain view.

    As well, for those interested, Warehouse also had the Vintage 21 rye

    FWIW, I stopped by there yesterday and they had sold out, as had Astor.
