Well, I struck gold at a liquor store who was on the list of Pappy retailers about 15 minutes from my office. $70 seemed fair since I won't find another bottle on the shelf for quite some time.

If anyone would like to help a fellow SB obtain a bottle of VWFRRR, I'm all ears!

Do the older bottling of the VWFRR lack the small back label like the current bottlings? I came across a C series with no back label and it struck me as a bit funny. The front label also had a lot of glue residue around it, looked pretty sloppy when compared to other bottles I have had. Additionally, there was no laser code on the bottle, but I am assuming this did not come until later when bottled at BT.

Label could have fell off, I have one that the front label is barely holding on by a small dab of glue. Looking at it, there was hardly any glue on the thing. I've had some others that had spotty quality in labeling.

I have a few VWFRR where the labels (front especially) look like they were put on by a glue stick. A few of the labels were re-affixed w/ Scotch tape. In fact, a couple bottles of VWFRR I've seen at Twisted Spoke also have Scotch tape on the labels.
I emailed a photo of my glue stick bottle to Julian and he emailed the following day explaining they had some issues with label affixing a couple years back. These seem to be 2009ish bottles.
