Amazing service from a local store who kept my name on a list - woo hoo!
That's great news!!! My bottle is sitting a few of thousand miles away but hope to mule it back soon.

That's a nice score.
Congrats! I had the same thing happen to me. I put my name on a list back during the spring and a couple weeks ago they called me and told me that I had won the "Pappy Lottery". I'm thinking, "hell yeah"! They gave me a choice of ORVW 10 yr, VWFR Lot B, or the VWFR. To me it was a no-brainer and the rye was my pick. I couldn't believe no one else picked it since I was the 8th person on the list. Needless to say, that store has won my business for years to come.
Shows the value of cultivating those relationships.
I think the rye is not on most folks rader. It doesn't say pappy in the name and rye is still a cult following in most places.
I think it tastes nothing like a rye and an amazing flavor unlike anything else I've ever had
A local store told me that the hardest score was the rye. Comparatively, rye is hot these days, but not everybody is interested in it.
I remember when the Rye sat on the shelves year round, seems like it has always been the neglected one. It's actually my pick of the bunch.
