    It's Lot "B" - No. B2122 if that means anything...

    I think it means that in 8 minutes you have completely FUBAR'd this entire thread. Yes,it should be in the Rye area. And, no, you shouldn't refer to it as "Lot B". That designation, should be reserved for the 12 year Van Winkle Bourbon--Lot B. No need to further confuse us, as we easily get distracted, here. BTW, the B series of the VWFRR is the most recent release. However, you nailed your intro. You did find some yum yum. Enjoy!

    It says Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery - Frankfort, Kentucky. Where would the first "B" be make from? Van Winkle did not join BT until 2002. So how can this be the most recent release. I'm new and trying to learn...

    They started over with the letters. There's a chart around here somewheres...but I'm too lazy to find it.

    For some reason, they started the letter sequence over again last year with (A). Went to (B) this year. Somewhere here, When JVWIII was asked about it, I believe he replied that he didn't know why they started over.

    Sorry, forgot the rest of your question. The first B was all Medley-made rye, iirc. The current is that mixed with Cream of Kentucky Rye, made at the Bernheim plant in Louisville.

    Good score, whether it's "old B" or "new B." You'll love it just the same.
