    Heck, I'd like to get things rolling with a fresh new, 12yo Olde Tyme Rye!
    No more of that old stuff!

    Steve: Ah yes - but no more 1966. Let's splurge! Bring us some fresh wine! The freshest you've got - this year! No more of this old stuff.

    Re: Van Winkle Family Reserve 13 rye

    If the 2007 was the "I" bottles and the 2008 was the new "A", was there a 2009 edition? The year doesn't matter too much...I stocked up on some "A" bottles recently so the bunker is in good shape for the near future.

    You know Roger, you're right. Forget that old Rittenhouse stuff. Saz 18? Over the hill. And this new Michter's 25? Who do they think we are, some boobs? They're dealing with sophisticated people here!!!

    Just noticed that VWFRR is back on the state list. Don't know if any of the MI bourbons hounds have found any of the new stuff in state yet.
    Will scout out a few stores that carriewd it in the past.

    Yeah I noticed that too. If you see any, let a brother know! I'll return the favor too, of course.

    I wish you guys some good luck. That stuff is like gold. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe only 2,600 bottles of rye are released per year.
