    Make it the universal garage dump for all comments relating to anything Pappy-Weller or VW.
    They had better do it soon. The Van Winkles just announced on Facebook that the Spring bottling is complete.

    Suprisingly tough to find here in NYC, actually- I only know of two stores that have it on the regular, most places don't, and look at me with five heads when I ask about it.

    Re: Once a year allocation for Pappy?

    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.

    Facebook update:

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

    Keep in mind this is all my opinion and taste is a very subjective thing. That said, I would take the Saz18 or Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye over any Pappy expression. The problem is, these bottles are also very scarce.

    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.

    Over the course of the last 7-10 days, I have made the rounds thru most of the places where I saw VW during & after the fall release. It seems nobody knows anything about a spring release in these parts, or, they are just playing dumb. I can't even get anybody to put me on a 'call' list. They look at me like I'm crazy and dismiss the idea just about altogether. I guess I'll just keep knocking on doors & heads until the bottles begin to show up...lol. Not getting a chance at any rye is quite a downer though.

    They are actually posting when each area is shipping on Facebook. So perhaps, you can hold off on the knocking on heads until you see the shipment announcement.

    (So far VT has shipped, NH shipping 3/1, ID 2/23, Montana 3/1 according to the FB Page).

    They have been announcing it that way for the last 4 allocations.

    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.
