    seeing a lack of Old Rip as well? Do people snatch those
    up ("Guess I'll "settle" for this...") like the PVWs?

    I suspect the one-bottle-per-person rule is responsible for the long line.

    Old Rip sold out with everything else. I was hoping to score some 10/107.

    Re: Pappy fall allocation

    One thing to remember is that most (all?) of the VW products are now coming from BT stock. I've been to BT about seven or eight times in the last five years, and only once have they been distilling the wheated mashbill when I was there. (If they were distilling at all.) It seems like a logical conclusion to me that they don't run the wheated mashbill near as often as their two rye mashbills. Maybe someone can help shed a little light on this. So you have one mashbill now accounting for: BTAC WLW, Weller 12, OWA, Weller SR, ORVW 10/90, ORVW 10/107, Lot B, Pappy 15, and maybe Pappy 20 and Pappy 23 as well. Add to that the possibility of not enough available warehouse space, and......... voila'. Limited availabilty!

    I know some of this is conjecture on my part, but I don't think I'm too far off in my rationale here. Cheers and happy wheaters to all! Joe

    Re: Pappy fall allocation

    Just another reason for me to write off the whole fiasco.

    It would be one thing if it was just hard to find; it's quite another that it's hard to find and only released once a year... to a select few dealers. The whole deal is just bullshit, IMO. I refuse to be part of it.

    I'm with Ebo.

    If I see some on a shelf, which I probably will at some point, I'll pick up a couple bottles of Old Rip 107. Otherwise, nuts to this. I got better things to do than devote time and money toward a wild goose chase.

    Thumbs up Re: Pappy fall allocation

    I have managed to score all of the PVW in Djibouti! I PM'd Kickert in Swaziland, and he made the camel trip up to the Horn to pick up for me all 7 bottles that were shipped there. I, truly, am great.

    Any Lawrence of Arabia fans? Beware of them at parties because they will mention that quote and expect you to give them a pour

    About as many here as are Shakespeare fans, I think.
