    We are getting into dusty hunting territory here. I would ask this question in the dusty hunting tips thread, but in short yes. The dates on the bottom are indicators of the bottling date.

    ...and it's off-topic anyway.

    My apologies for derailing.

    Back on topic, has it ever been confirmed how often W12 is bottled? I'm definitely going to ask that during my next visit to BT.

    Every drop of it. That was the idea. HH never made a wheater in Bardstown so acquiring OF and Bernheim gave them their first experience with it. The PHC wheater was from the first batch made by Parker and Craig Beam (mostly Craig, truth be told) at Bernheim.

    Great stuff, Thad. Thanks for continuing to corral widespread info, and bringing it to light when needed.

    Re: Weller 12 flying off the shelves?

    Looks like a shipment has just landed here. I picked up 3 while out and about today. Price has gone up some where I buy. Got it for $23 last year, $28 this year. Getting to the point where it is not longer considered a value bourbon.

Anyway, I got there to discover the bourbon shelves about 80% empty. The only stuff they had left was some bottom shelf stuff, and some NDP products. So then I decided to go look at a large store I had passed before, but never checked out. Everything was well stocked, and even some good deals. It just goes to show how different two stores in the same town can be.
    The store you went to has been having some financial trouble, which is unfortunate. The other shelves in that store are 80% empty as well. Weller 12 IS available in the Indy area. Also, in Indiana it is not on allocation...at least not yet. Stores in the same area are quite different which I think is true everywhere.

    Re: Weller 12 flying off the shelves?

    On my first distillery tour last year (around Thanksgiving) checked out Bourbon's Bistro to hopefully get a taste of a couple items we can't get down here in NC (that includes a lot!). My top choice was W12 - and they didn't have any! I was told nothing until sometime this year. What was amazing to me was that they had every PVW expression though. Luckily, I found some W12 on the shelf at a chain liquor store, can't remember the name. Tasty!

    Here in Houston, I am seeing empty slots for the 1/2 gallon size, but 750ml and 1 liter still readily available.

    Re: Weller 12 flying off the shelves?

    I'm just waiting for this to be discontinued. I had someone find me 3 1.75's in FLA recently while none was to be found in KY.

    PS has had a 1 bottle limit posted on their site for some time for W12.

    Here is Montgomery County MD, they have started allocating this...I got two bottles during the last shipment, and was told it would likely be only 1 in the future.
