    That's the one! But instead of J, they started over again with A. I don't know if there's an updated version of that chart.

    Doesn't matter - there's not a bad bottle of this. It's all the nectar of the gods, easily a Top 5 pour for 99% of the people who have tried it - for any batch!

    Drink it.

    Well it does matter to me because I'm a collector as well as an enthusiast who enjoys drinking.

    Use search. There's a chart here that tells you how old it is, etc.

    I hate to be the contrarian, but it appears someone has to, yes current B is good, but NO it ain't the same as previous B. Previous B, which I think would have been bottled in Lawrenceburg, was all Medley Rye before the CoK Bernheim Rye was vatted with it, and tanked, and IMHO better.

    Yes the current stuff is wonderful, just not as wonderful as the previous.

    Re: I found me some yum yum!!

    I just tracked down 3 bottles in NY and my friend picked them up. I should be coming away with 2 of them for myself so I'm pretty excited as well as I have never actually owned a bottle of it before. I tried it and it was really amazing so I'm glad I can finally add a couple bottles to the bunker.

    I will not pass judgment until I have a few more pours over different day’s time, but I must say so far I don’t care much for VAN WINKLE 13 YEAR OLD RYE. It’s the first Van Winkle product I’ve tasted also. I have not cracked open the Pappy yet…I have 12, 15, 20, and 23. I hope they are better.

    Maybe I just don’t like rye…I know a hate rye bread.

    The label was changed to a self stick type in the last couple of years so that is an indicator of the relative age.

    I will try to remember to compare my original A at home to the more recent bottle and let you know the difference. IIRC, the new labels have a different part number and sit lower on the bottle.

    Have you tried much rye, or bourbon, that is over 15 yrs old?

    I find the rye to be one of the best of the VW line.
