    Re: Van Winkle Family Reserve 13 rye

    Does anyone have a lead to even a single bottle of this in New England or NY? Been looking for it for about 8-9 months now. If so, send me a private message. Unfortunately I can't get booze shipped to MA.

    Re: Van Winkle Family Reserve 13 rye

    Picked up a J bottle of this in London yesterday.
    The water was not fit to drink. To make it palatable, we had to add whiskey. By diligent effort, I learned to like it.

    VW rye is very bourbonesque.

    Do you like it for that quality, or dislike it because of that? Neither?

    I wish that more of the vanilla from the oak was present since it is more borbounesque. Otherwise I'd want it to run in the other direction, with less bourbon notes and more of the interesting rye spice notes.

    But that's me...

    I like it like that, to me VW's are and/or should be unique and this rye definatley is unique.

    Another trait that Van Winkles should have is that they should be utterly drinkable. VW rye is pretty darn easy to put down!

    I concur! I've got a bottle packed in a box with other stuff ready for a trip to the Outer Banks tomorrow.

    Can't find any of this in Chicago lately but I have a few open bottles that should last until the next release....I hope.

    Of the WLW09, PVW15, RittBIB, and VWFRR I took on the trip, the VWFRR is the only bottle that is "liked" by the other guy I'm with. It's 5 girls, one guy, and me.

    Everything else seems to hurt everybody, but Matt sure appreciates the spice of the VWFRR! Indeed!
