    To my knowledge it has always been an annual release (Fall) with them having done an additional distribution last spring. Whether the Spring distributions continue, I have no idea.

    FYI, the Tele Country Code for Djibouti is 253. You may now begin your contact fostering in earnest...

    However, if you refer to bourbon as juice in Djibouti, they will shrink your head, and wear it as a pendant.

    What a hateful stereotype. They don't shrink heads in Djibouti, they'll just eat you.

    Re: Pappy fall allocation

    I just got off the phone with Julian-he was asking me to come down and help taste some barrels for the re-release of Old Time Rye in a few months-and he mentioned that the rather sizable allocation that's heading to Deadhorse, AK had to be shipped all barrel proof. Seems the Antarctica bottles didn't need to be as it's summer there...

    They only ship barrel proof rye to AK. The 95 proof stuff tends to freeze in transit. They lost too much product through the long winters and started sending barrel proof only to keep it from freezing. The AK PVW15 is actually 128.3 proof


    This is on the internet. Therefore it IS true.

    I read that they bottled a barrel distilled in 1959 and sent them to Hawaii and Alaska to commemorate the year of their statehoods.

    I heard they recently uncovered a semi-truck full of the stuff that had slid off the road on the way to Alaska in the '80's.. Or was it the '20's? Anyway, they were able to salvage a few bottles, and I think they're going to try to recreate the recipe and sell it. They're calling it Van Winkleton Ice Rye.
