Once a year? At this point, they could release it once a decade for all I care.
I officially have Pappy fatigue and will not be actively looking to buy. If I run into it on a store shelf at a decent price, I will pick it up, but I refuse to pay eBay prices or wait an hour in line for the 'privilege' of purchasing a single bottle. This is especially true when the 15 is no longer SW and the 20 is going the same route.
Besides, I have found some phenomenal ryes that blow any of the Pappys, SW or not, out of the water.

The spring allocation will include everything except the rye. Most markets who received a fall allocation will receive a spring allocation.

As far as more readily available rye, I prefer a Thomas H Handy to any Pappy 15/20/23 and would choose a High West Rendezvous, High West 16, or Whistlepig over the PVW15 or 23.
Surprised to see a NH shipment (didn't think there was one last fall). I'll be keeping an eye on their inventory site for sure.
