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

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.
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.
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.
