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.

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?

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

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…

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.
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....
