    just not sure why a store would go for it unless they are price gouging the VW in which case they're probably gouging FR too, or they will next year.
    It's very possible to have a high price over MSRP on VW and not on 4R Ltd Eds. Four Roses doesn't have near the poseur appeal of VW, and even if some are starting to catch on, it won't be close for several years.

    Re: Hypothetical PVW 23 trade

    Yeah, I've heard of some pricing on Lot B right along with FR LE's, or even more. unfortunately.

    I'm sure you're right about the FR LE's but considering the hype over this year's I certainly wouldn't count on it getting any easier to acquire. But really, FR and VW are totally different machines with VW as the cool looking runaway train built by someone else and FR as...something strong and controlled and building speed gradually built by FR... or something

    Personally, like many here, I'd let everyone else go crazy over VW while I quietly stock up on the FR releases.

    It may be closer then you think Josh. In pass years I've had no problem finding the LE's . But this year I've struggled to find one of each.

    I've already stopped chasing VW and BTAC because of improbability. Now it looks to me, its happening with FR's.

    You can still walk into most any store around here and find the 2012 SmB LE. Most of the past years can be had, too. I'm with Josh in thinking that a comparable 4R boom may be years away, if ever in coming. Although every little bit of extra positive press they do receive makes me cringe just a little more in anticipation of it.

    I'd like to see where/how these are distributed. Meaning do all regions get a relatively equal share?

    Re: Hypothetical PVW 23 trade

    I propose a moratorium on discussing the bourbons currently being made in Lawrenceburg, KY, with the exception perhaps of the yellow label. They already got plenty of exposure on Hansell's blog, and we've probably fanned the flames enough here as it is. I'd hate to see that brand go the way of the Van Winkle's. Let the lurkers and flippers lust for VW and BTAC. Let's keep our own future rosy, so to to speak.

    Deal? Maybe we could have a code word of some sort.

    Great idea. We should only discuss terrible whiskey so that we throw off the trail of other people that are interested in whiskey. I can't wait.

    It'll be fascinating.

    Never mind, my early morning paranoia is kicking in... a side effect of whiskirexia nervosa ​I guess.

    Quick update. Trade worked! Traded straight up. I would like to thank the VW hype for making this possible...

    That's awesome. From now on I'm hunting Lot B at retail for trade bait! Call it Lot Chum.
