    Curious how the new "C" stacks up.

    That WhiskyWonka blog made it seem like the 2011 was better - I wonder why that is.

    If you want to try your 'C' next to last years 'B', let me know and we can arrange a tasting.

    Re: Van Winkle Family Reserve 13 rye

    Has anyone noticed (or maybe I have a weird bottle) that this years C bottling now has a Buffalo Trace bottle stamp while last years B bottling did not have a stamp at all?

    my C2733 bottle has B1210910:03M on it

    I know there's some way to translate those stamps. How does that one break down? I'll have to check my bottle to see what the stamp on it says....
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    i think there was an issue with last years bottle code, most of mine wound up behind the label

    I thought it broke down as 12 = 2012 109 = 109th day 10:03 = 10:03am dont know what the letters mean though.

    Tico - That could be possible, I tried to look through with a light but didnt see anything. did think it was weird that it wouldnt have one.

    I just checked a Fall 2011 VEFRR and there is no code; the 20 from the same release has one of the old versions.

    Van Winkle Family Reserve 13 rye

    I have a bottle from 2008 that has a code. Wonder what was different in 2011.
