    Ohh there is gonna be some crazy stuff going down when Julian finally comes out and says 'No More SW for you!'.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news....

    But according to my buyer at K&L, Harlan from BT came to the LA store and did confirm that this release (apparently a small amount of spring release was too) will be a blend of SW and BT juice for the 15 year. The 20 and 23 should have 2 more years of juice left, but the 15 is going to be slowly reworked until there's no more SW left in it.

    We'll see what they do from a branding perspective though.

    Re: Pappy fall allocation

    I try and post items in the Industry News forum. With all the speculation about the provenance of Pappy 15 earlier this year, I sent Julian a pm asking him about the Pappy 15. This was his reply. Cheers! Joe

    Joe, if your question is, "Is the 15 year out now Stitzel-Weller whiskey"? Yes it is this year. Not sure about next year yet.

    Nice work Joe. Can we post that reply somewhere? If I had a nickle for every time this question is asked I could buy a bottle!

    Re: Pappy fall allocation

    I wonder if they are at all attempting to reproduce SW's recipe and production method at BT

    Possibly even on eBay.

    Re: Pappy fall allocation

    I enjoy the fuss. I like the challenge of obtaining some bottles. I don't like the back and forth on the provenance, though. That's just ridiculous. I blame the source for that - not sure why it should be a question.

    He's not sure? I guess he could be saving it for Pappy 20 and higher profit margins.

    Re: Pappy fall allocation

    I was talking to a clerk at a local store, and he mentioned that last year's allocation of premium bourbons, including Pappy and GTS was hijacked, which I knew about, and that hijackers also got three trailer loads of Dr. Pepper.

    I shudder to think these hijackers may be drinking Pappy and Dr. Pepper cocktails.

    I hope this year's allocation makes it through...

    Really? It's come to this, hijacking high end bourbon deliveries?

    Dr. Pepper was originally a Texas product I believe. Must still be pretty popular down there. The logistics of stealing a beverage truck, moving all the cans, and selling them for a profit are a little baffling to me unless you own vending machines or it's an insurance job.
