    Glad to see when the honor's system works and a store truly comes through,I managed a rye and several other VW products this same way.I always give these chosen stores my business time and time again for this very reason.

    Re: Scored pappy rye!

    I was able to find the rye as well and the stores that took care of me will get a lot of business from me.
    The other stores that I've bought VW from in the past (along with a lot of other bottles) were useless.
    I would have been happy if they said it's all spoken for but they lied or ignored and won't be getting my $$ in the future.

    Re: Scored pappy rye!

    1) I can't believe this is it's own thread

    2) In NYC, Pappy 15 is the most difficult to find. I think I've been able to find/buy two bottles of the Rye for every PVW15.

    3) Thinking of giving some whiskey as a Christmas gift. Would you rather receive a Lot B or a WLW?

    I'm with you on this one. Two local stores have earned my business by communicating with me and being up front when they do so. The others won't see me again.

    WLW gets my vote. I can water it down on my own.

    WLW, certainly, if my choice is between the two.

    WLW for me as well - I had a 2011 Master of Malt sample & it blew me away

    Re: Van Winkle Family Reserve 13 rye

    Well, color me surprised! After getting the opportunity to buy the one bottle of Jeff Ocean that made it to my favorite store I knew and accepted I was moving down to the bottom of the list for both BTAC and VW this year, especially given how limited allocations seemed to be.

    But I still managed to pick up a 2012 WLW from them a while back when one bottle went unclaimed and now I get word that a bottle of VWFRR is available and has my name on it. Adding in the generosity of a fellow SBer in helping me acquire a PVW20 from a different source at roughly retail cost and it has been a pretty decent fall after all!
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Re: Van Winkle Family Reserve 13 rye

    I don't know if this the secret password to join club or not, but I obtained my first bottle of this. My mom was able to get it at a store in another state. She knows the owner, and he had one in the back he sold her. Don't you just love mothers. The bottle is a "C" bottle with the BT stamp on it so I'm assuming it's pretty recent. I'd like to pop it open, but I have a ton of other stuff open and lots of stuff in the queue. So I think I'll just tuck it away for a bit...my preciousssss.

    That last sentence alone is worth a membership.

    Re: Van Winkle Family Reserve 13 rye

    I'm so sick from not being able to find even 1 bottle this year that I just can't even bring myself to talk about it anymore....
