    I thought they had up'd the production of those after 2000, or was that not until this recent 2005 release?

    Either way you are making me think twice about letting go of the extra I have from 2003!

    I'm speaking specifically of the 2004 issue -- there were 1,050 bottles produced. It's in a thread here somewhere, or you can extrapolate it from the info sheet that comes in a 3-pack. BT found very few suitable ER17 barrels in 2004.

    I'm having a nip of OGD 114, after a couple of earlier Manhattans. As usual, OGD 114 has its incredible spicy-sweet taste...
    Oh no! You have walked into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue!

    You know Tim, every time I ask for that piece of paper whenever I have purchased any of the AC bottlings I am told they just "throw it out with the box..." Very frustrating it is as I'd really like to read what is on there sometime! I was even going to purchase 3 bottles of Stagg from BevMo and asked specifically could I please get the box and paper that these came with so I can put them away? Nope sorry threw it out.......

    I searched (and I am not good with the search function) and could not find the numbers so I am not going to worry about it. All I know is I got the 2000/2003 Saz & ER and will probably never see any of the others except for the 05 which can still be found - as well as future releases that is.

    Anyway tonite a little Lot B, and then I am going to try get to bed early as I think I have slept no more than 5 hours each night since moving into this new place.

    Oops had a little Pappy 20 as well.

    Last night was a tequila night, Cielo Anejo and Corazon Anejo, both very good. Tonight its Weller 12, thanks go out to TomH. Its the first time I've had it and I love it. I will definately have to get another bottle. I highly recommend it to any fan of the wheaters.

    I was lucky enough to be able to bunker a few of them. just picked them up months ago not realizing that there were so low in production numbers.

    I'm pretty much going to pick up any Antique Collection pre 2005, because they are hard to find and I like drinkin' em! Greg

    So Tim, I figure you might have the answer to this, what is the lowest production # of any year Antique Bottling?
