I've asked my local retailer, who carries Pappy's 20yo, to try and locate other bottles in the Pappy's line (Lot B, OVRW 10/107, 15yr, 23yr), thinking that if they are able to get the 20yo, they shouldn't have a problem getting the others.
I got a call from them, telling me that it didn't look promising. Even said they were told that Pappy's doesn't make a 15yo product!
The retailer said he would try to get more information, and would get back to me.
Can anyone shed some light for me on how the retailer/distributor relationship typically works? Is it usually along brand lines (almost impossible to find Weller products, for example, in my area)?
Incidentally, another retailer in the same general area does carry some Lot B, Pappy's 15, and OVRW 10/107. But their prices are higher in general than my retailer of choice, and I was trying to do better.
Thanks for any insight or suggestions.
