    If they're getting shipments throughout the year, it's at the distributor level, them holding some back. It's only released by the distillery once a year, now.

    Correct. Used to be two releases from VW, fall and spring, now just fall. That was said to try to help with the supply problem. See how well the single release worked...

    Found a lonely Saz 18 on the shelf this morning. A little higher than standard retail, but was glad to take it home.

    My 4 bottles of ETL were delivered by Fed Ex today. Yay! I suppose I had already purchased them, but since they arrived today, I think it counts.

    Rowan's Creek and Lot 40 -- first time for either of these. Couldn't pass up these two as today was 15% at Binny's.

    OFBB '13.

    I find distribution, retail inventory, and customer shopping patterns very interesting. A couple of bigger stores around me that do high volume bourbon sales, and get allocations of Pappy, BTAC, etc., do not appear to get OFBB. Another store around me -- smaller and probably more of a wine/beer place -- has had OFBB '13 on the shelf for several months (and I noticed the same thing with the OFBB '12). I bought one '13 a month or two ago and went back for another last night -- left at least one more on the shelf. If these had been at other stores just 5/10 miles away, they would have been gone in days -- yet those stores don't even get them. I guess another key point is the store that has them doesn't have an internet presence -- which is likely another reason (aside from the store attracting more wine/beer shoppers) for the OFBBs to stick around for a while. Of course, price may have a little to do with the shelf life as well, but the price isn't too outrageous compared to what I've seen elsewhere.
