    \"New\" ryes

    Well, it seems that the current bottling of the Van Winkle rye has made its way to some of you. Any tasting notes? Comparisons with the "F" bottling? Unfortunately, it's all just a torture for me as it doesn't seem to get here to GA, but I'd still like reading about it.

    How about the new 6-yr old Sazerac? Has it been bottled yet? Shipped? Tasted? Actually, if either of these linger on some shelves into late fall, I may be able to get some.

    NOpe haven't seen it in Louisiana yet, though I'll be in Bardstown the end of this week. I'll be on the lookout there.

    As far as availability, I can't say for the Van Winkle (though past experience says it'll be on the shelves at least that long), but the Saz Jr. is, to the best of my knowledge, supposed to be a regular bottling, so it should be readily available (I'm guessing in selected states, though).

    But, Ken will know better than me.

    The glass just arrived this week! We will be bottling the new rye in about 2 - 3 weeks, depending upon how fast things move through Blanton's Bottling Hall.

    Great! Had some Saz 18 last night and if the 6 yr. is a third as good (and I can find it), it will be a terrific addition to the market.

    BTW, what kind of price point are you expecting?

    It is illegal to set shelf prices, since we sell to distributors who sell to retailers who sell to consumers.

    PS. About $19.99 for the 750ml

    Re: \"New\" ryes - 6-yr old Sazerac

    Ken,
    What's the status of the new release?

    Released?

    I say California is the place it ought to be.
    So, please, load it on the truck and move it to Berkeley.
    Ledger's, that is,
    University Avenue...

    Roger

    PS: Last Ledger's plug for awhile - my only excuse it that it fit form AND meter!

    Hey! Why don't they just load up a case or so and send it down to headquarters in New Orleans for me, I'll pick up.

    ...But don't forget California, because then my thirst would still be unslaked. Composing lyrics is hard work.
