    So that means I got 20% of them..

    I do not know how rare any of them are but I had to order a Stagg from the Party Source and the rest were already sold out. None of it here in WA yet

    It wasn't a ton of work for me. Yeah, I had to drive out of town, but I went with a friend and we had a pretty good time. Two Staggs, three Saz18's and one each of everything else. I'm happy.... wifey isn't. I'm gettin' nuttin' for Christmas.

    Re: BTAC and Van Winkle nonsense

    I frankly stopped giving a shit about the BTAC back in...oh wait, I never really cared. Stagg is always good, WLW is good some years and mediocre some others, Saz 18 is boring and Handy is mad overpriced. Of the Van Winkles, I like Pappy 15 but not enough to make myself crazy looking for it. I always try to have some Old Rip 107 on hand tho'. And the VWFRR is also a favorite.

    I'm not really a collector either (I don't have the room even if I wanted to be) so I don't feel compelled have a complete set of something. Not to say that I won't stock up on stuff I love, but I do intend to drink (or trade for something I'll drink) every bottle I have in the bunker.

    No hateration of collectors or BTAC/Van Winkle fanatics intended, just ain't my bag.

    There is a marked difference in older Saz18 vs latest releases. I was fortunate to score two older bottles and it was truely amazing, like wow, like unbelievable. I sold one to a friend and now try to get her last half bottle back.
