    Ed you just need to work out a deal with an US based couterpart to ship to you occasionally and you do likewise with some of those tasty export only's... If you need a volunteer I'd glad to throw my name in the hat.

    As for me; a bottle of Rittenhouse BiB just bit the dust. I have to say I like it, but not as much as most here. It seems to fall in the middle of typical ryes and that is likely what many enjoy, it is not as young and "herby" tasting as the Saz Jr. and not as old and fruity sweet as VWFRR.

    I checked all the on-line shippers and eBay, and I saw none of the Sazerac Jr. I was in Kentucky in October and I checked several stores' inventories looking for other things and I don't recall seeing it except one place, and I bought it for a friend for Christmas.

    Does anyone know if this is a once a year release and the new bottles aren't out yet.

    I'd ship you some "Care Packages" Ed, because you have all that Wild Turkey we can't get here.

    Re: Empty Bottles Support Group

    Oscar, it's still on a number of shelves in these parts, and has been pretty much continually since its release. I believe it's intended to be a regular bottling, but 'regular' at Buffalo Trace means 'on allocation', as every one of their whiskies is. So, there may well be gaps.

    Re: Empty Bottles Support Group

    I finished off a bottle of ORVW 15/107 over the weekend (no, not all at once, just the last few pours!). I'm sad to see it go since I only have one left and don't see the new Pappy 15 anywhere.

    The Sazarac Jr is still available at Binny's.

    Latest casualties: ORVW 10/107 and OGD BIB.
    Oh no! You have walked into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue!

    Hi Oscar,
    Hi Christian,

    Thanks for the kind offers. I really haven't done much trading as of yet. I did trade several bottles with Mark (Nebraska) when I was back home. That was face to face on my folks' deck and involved no shipping.

    I think doing more trading will be one of my New Year's Resolutions.

    Re: Empty Bottles Support Group

    I have been retiring a few of those many bottles with just a couple of pours in them. Recently, a WT 12, an Old Ezra 15, an Old Forester 100 proof, a WT Rare Breed, and an ORVW 10 yo 90 proof have been emptied. Also retired was a Noilly Pratt dry vermouth and a Tanqueray London Dry Gin.

    There are still a fair number slated for the chopping block.

    Weller 12 DB Barrel C bit the dust tonite, some very fine SW whiskey for a song!

    Next in line, the rest of that BMH 11yr and say it ain't so a bottle of VWFRR!!
