    Re: Van Winkle Family Reserve 13 rye

    I killed my own on the trip to the distilleries. Killed a buddy's bottle (at his request/ with his help) as well.

    Re: Van Winkle Family Reserve 13 rye

    Strange thing. SC didn't get any VWFRR in the initial shipment. VW said it was a labeling issue. I put my name in at all the stores that carry it and said call me when it comes in. Last week one called and they got a case so I went out and bought 4 bottles at about $60 each. Now they are all calling and each has a case or more. One said sales drop off dramatically after Xmas. Hmmm...

    While I was in Columbia for Christmas I was shocked to find a store with SIX(6!) bottles of the VWFRR. They said they had just come in that week. I had been on their list but they never called me. Unfortunately, I was limited to 2 bottles by the boss or I would have bought them all. I know when I finally get back to Columbia, they will be gone (probably already are).

    Sadly, I still can't find any here in Atlanta.

    Georgia got 16 bottles of rye this past allocation. 1 went to the bunker. As for the Other 15?

    I got one---1---lonely bottle, but I was glad to get it.

    I've never even seen a bottle on the shelf, but did try it for the first time the other night at a bar. Makes me want to find a bottle even more!

    After being shut out during the most recent release I was able to get my hands on 3 bottles yesterday, all B46**. All are going into the bunker for now, I have way too stuff open and need to work through some of it before I go opening more.

    Anybody have an extra bottle they would like to trade or "trade?" Still have never seen a single bottle on the shelf except at local bar.

    Re: Van Winkle Family Reserve 13 rye

    Since it was recently announced that the rye would not be part of the spring release, it worries me that we are getting close to the end of this stuff. I am shocked that Julian isn't charging more than 45$ wholesale in GA.

    I don't think it's ever been a part of the spring release.
