Well, if you hadn't put the condition that the list be current, my list would be longer.
Weller 12 (Binny's)
As for older/out of production, my top favorite is SW Old Fitz BIB, followed by ORVW 15

Weller Centennial 13 year "Julio's"
RVWFR "lot b"
Weller Antique 107
going to try some ORVW 10/107 this weekend as I'm doing a bourbon run with a buddy to Boston (about 2 hrs away) Anyone think it's worth $35 vs $19 for Weller Antique?
James, I would say it's worth buying one. At $35 for ORVW 10/107, that's more than steep. More like highway robbery. Here in CT, the highest I've seen it is $29.99. The lowest, $25.49. The store that had the latter price, I purchased four bottles. However, if you haven't tried it then, in my opinion, you've got to try it once. After that, if it's the same price, I'd say pass. But, it is better than the Antique. Those two are my every day pours, if ever I had one.
P.S. I agree with you that the 15 is better than the 20. This is just my opinion but I think the 10/107 is better than the 20.

I'm enjoying some PVW 15 as we speak, man I love this stuff!
James, the PVW 15 is the best of the VW's in my opinion.
Unfortunately, James, I'm located in Eastern CT instead of Western so I really don't know of any places. And in my location, all the VW's are gone sans the Lot B and 20.
As far as online stores go, you should try Binnys.com, Samswine.com, Shoppersvineyard.com. Also check the following link. After clicking, scroll down to "Retailer Web Sites and Links." http://www.buffalotrace.com/guide_links_m.asp
That should help you out somewhat.
P.S. Sam's Wine has ORVW 10/107 for $29.99. In the end, you'd be paying the same once shipping was included.
Check these prices out. Do not buy from here!!!! These prices rival Internet Wine's: http://www.missionliquor.com/Store/Qstore/Qstore.cgi

Thanks Mark. I used to live in south county RI and know a store in Warwick that has great bourbon deals. If you're not too far you might make a trip. Here's the site... Cheers!
btw - MA doesn't allow out of state shipments of booze :-(
