    Re: Van Winkle Family Reserve 13 rye

    Did anyone else who picked up a new bottle this past week notice the lettering started back at 'A' again? It was a few miles from my house so I highly doubt it was sitting there for any extended period of time.

    They went back to A on the new release if I am not mistaken

    Sweet!! Nice pick. I would be happy to find some at $58.

    All of the bottles I've picked up in the last year or so have an "A" on them.

    Patience. I must learn patience.

    Well it finally paid off. Picked up two bottles of VWFRR today for about $60 /bottle. Was down to the last bottle and starting getting nervous. I think I should open one immediately and take the edge off.

    Forgot to mention the 2 bottles I picked up are also labeled "A".

    A is the current release. Not sure why they started over.

    Is the current release still the older aged tanked stuff? I recall another post in which Julian stated all the VWFRR was left over aged rye that they finally tanked. The more recent bottles actually have rye that's been aged 18-19 years. ???

    According to Julian in post 35 in this thread, they started over with A in 2008.

    Apparently they printed lots of labels as they are still at A in 2010. It looks like the label lettering is no longer an indicator of the release year.
