    My "I" bottles have been terrific, but I flew through all four of them and the bunker is now down to one!

    Me too. I'm treading lightly on the 1/4 btle I have left as only one soldier remains to take its place.

    I guess it didn't hold long enough! At $42 I'd drink it fast too. Hopefully you can get more in your parts.

    I tried to make the VWFRR a "special occasion" pour that I would only sip now and then but my plans were foiled by its superb quality. I just couldn't leave it alone and I really enjoyed pouring some for friends so that I could watch their expressions. To a person, everyone who sampled it loved it. I was even gifted an extra bottle when the first four disappeared but now I really will have to ration it because I don't see it around often.

    Same here. I have one in the bunker and I cringe when I look at what's left of the one open on my bar.

    Re: Van Winkle Family Reserve 13 rye

    I picked up two bottles from the "A" bottling a couple weeks ago. I broke my "Rye" cherry earlier in the week and I can certainly understand why people enjoy this product so much. I found that my first sip was sort of underwhelming but as it sat in the glass for a little while it really opened up and had great flavor and a really long finish!

    Re: Van Winkle Family Reserve 13 rye

    I keep my VWFRR that's open on the bar in a pappy 23 velvet bag. It makes it harder to get to, and most of my friends think it's not open...

    It's always a pleasure to see their posts here. If they're listening, I sure would like to know when a true 13 year-old rye is coming online. Will we have to wait until the stainless steel tanks are emptied first?

    (If they're still listening. Thanks for everything.)
