    Re: Update: Julian\'s 13y rye

    Good news on the continued release of Julian's excellent rye, I've got a few bottles stashed away but now I won't have to be so stingy. Mardi Gras just around the corner. Guess I'll get out the Herbsaint, it's time to mix up a Sazerac or 3.

    Re: Latest Release (?) of VWFR Rye arrives in PA

    My favorite store just received a new shipment of VWFR 13yo rye. The bottle numbers begin with the letter "E". The bottles I have stashed at home begin with the letter "C". The bottles and labels are otherwise identical. So, can I assume the "E" bottles are the latest release and are actually much older than 13yo (and older than my "C" bottles)? Also, are both releases from the same stock?

    Re: Latest Release (?) of VWFR Rye arrives in PA

    I heard from someone (but I'm not even sure if it is true or not) that say a "C" means it is in reality 15 years old. If that would be true then "E" would be 17?! If anyone can confirm or deny this, by all means please let us know. If it is true, I'm driving to PA!

    John and Mark:

    Anything labeled as bottled in Frankfort would be Julian's new batch. They are the "E" labels, distilled in 1984.

    According to Julian Van Winkle last week, the current bottling (the "E" I guess) is 15 years old.

    Re: Van Winkle\'s 13y (and older) rye

    Omar,

    Just got around to reading your reply (and all the others) on 13 YO Van Winkle Rye and got to looking at my labels. I have some bottles that just have bottle numbers and some with a B in front of the numbers that were bottled in Lawrenceburg (hard to keep up with all these numbers on how old is what) but one this is for sure. All the Van Winkle Ryes are supurb!! Here's to Julian!!!

    Cheers,
    Marvin
