    PVW 20,23 ..'12,'13 laser code info

    Hey guys, I know this has probably been out there already,all I could find was pre 2011 info. I have a bottle of PVW20,and one PVW23,after another member asked me about the laser codes,it got me curious also,so I emailed Preston about the codes and if any of my bottles were still SW juice. Here is his reply and the info on the codes, Oh here are my codes:20---B1227513:38M, the 23—B1312110:13M

    Don,

    Attached is the cipher for the bottling codes. So, your 20yr was bottled at BT in 2012 on the 275th day of the year at 1:38pm on line M.

    The 23 is definitely all SW and the 20 is likely a mixture of SW and BT. There were a few ’91 barrels made at BT while the still was being repaired at SW.

    Let me know if any more questions.

    Cheers,

    Bottling Date on Bottle since 2011

    B1219014:48M


    First letter indicates it was bottled at Buffalo Trace
    First two numbers indicate year bottled
    Next three are Julian date.
    Time in 24 hr format
    Last letter is the bottling line on which it was bottled.

    So, Buffalo Trace, 2012, 190th day of the year at 2:48 on line M


    Bottling Date on Bottle pre 2011

    M1901014:48

    Line on which bottled
    3 digit Julian date
    year bottled
    time in 24hr format

    So that's cool I got me some SW juice for the first time,although I opened it (the 23) yesterday and took a pour, it was good,but not really fantastic, took another pour today,seems a little better,will have to keep trying it,(damn).
    Everyday my spirit seems to find its way to the bottom of a glass...... Don

    This has already been mentioned in other threads and should be under the Premium section.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    I must've missed it, or forgot.
