    Re: Van Winkle bottles....Spring allocation

    Just found out our State may have an allocation of four cases.

    It was quoted on their facebook page by whomever is running it. I would assume it was Preston as he mentioned at one time he was going to be adding a page to facebook.

    not doubting you saw it, but I couldn't find that post on FB. And I have a hard time thinking that to be true. Here's hoping it's not. Cheers!

    I feel lucky - in NY the 15 can be had for $55. - $60. and the 20 for $100. - $105.
    And yes, for $55. I did buy the last of the 15s from the store. A quote from the
    BourbonDork: "It won't be any cheaper than it is today." I'm trying to convince
    myself to grab the 20s while I can.

    I look forward to the Spring release of the 15s and will get all I can afford.

    I was reading down the page the other day and saw this as well. It looks like someone either made a mistake or said something they shouldn't have because it's been deleted. Someone specifically asked about any of the PVW stuff being SW. The reply mentioned the 15 was and that this would be last year of the 20.

    The comment was located underneath the 3rd post from the top. It was in response to "Bob Albano"s questions about when the juice comes from. This where the comment was made. It was in between the 4th and 5th comment where whoever runs their page replied with "the 15 is still SW juice but this is the last year of the 20 year."

    right, I have little doubt that this isn't the last of the 20 year van winkle. If it was, they wouldn't have deleted that.

    Hmm...I don't remember seeing that they said this was the last year of Pappy 20. They talked about the ORVW 15 and how that used to be the package before it was changed to Pappy 15 but there was no mention of the 20yr going away.

    It's not deleted I just read it

    "Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery All 20 & 23 year old Pappy is still S-W. This is the last year of the 20yr.
    February 18 at 8:16am"


    I'd have to think that is an error, or they're trying to drive up demand for the 20 year some.

    If they are discontinuing the 20 it is so they can continue the 23 for a little bit longer. Perhaps in terms of the prices they can get, taking the 20 off the market and using that stock to support the 23 may be more profitable. Perhaps discontinuing one or the other was inevitable. After all, every drop of S-W that they sell as Pappy 15 is whiskey that will never turn 20 or 23. It's about maximizing that finite resource.

    I don't know if it's true or not, but it's very plausible.
