Some old and wonderful whiskey has become available in the last few years. The 20-year old Pappy Van Winkle burst into the mrketplace as, perhaps, the new king of bourbon. Now the 13-year old Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye (this is one of the most astonishing whiskeys you will ever taste). There is necessarily a very long lead time to produce goods such as these. Are there stocks available to keep up a continuous supply, or are these essentially one-off bottlings? If the latter, I shall continue hording (I'm already long a case of Pappy and jealous of every ounce!).

Learned to appreciate Bourbon as a student in Chicago in the 1960's
