    is it just me or does it seem as if this stuff isn't going to be discontinued anytime soon? thought that was the official statement a few months ago...

    I don't recall WT ever saying they were going to discontinue RB
    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.

    I know we talked about a new batch and label, but nothing of it being discontinued

    WTRB-03, has subjectively seemed to be an extremly slow mover for a long time around Chicago, even post bourbon boom. The same bottles around long enough, I would think of it as the cockroach bourbon, able to survive a nuclear bomb. Forgiven has easily surpassed it though, see enough stores with display cases of it and sure don't look like the stack is coming down. I'm lucky to have had many a taste of the dusties but think 03 WTRB is still a fine bourbon (unlike Forgiven) and especially when I put a few away at $30...because nobody else was buying them, even at that price and recently.
