I'm trying to get a bottle. I called everyone in SC that carries. No one has. Couple had wait list and I put my name on but most said expect 3+ years before gets to my name. Anyone out there have access to a bottle? Any of the three years would be great.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    Total wine told me the same thing as above. They get it some day in November and they never know what day. Said to call every morning and when its there it will be gone by noon.

    I have a bottle of 15 from 2 years ago. Become GREAT friends with a local liquor store and hope they come through. It is incredible. But I'm more partial to the Van Winkle 10 year Lot B. that might be an easier catch.

    Haven't had it, but my cousin sent me a picture with the guy last weekend. He gave him a bottle. Some people have all the luck.

    They usually release it 2x a year. This year they are releasing both batches at the same time in November with the hopes that more people can get it. We shall see.

    Living in the land of Kentucky Jelly it is still hard to find.  Thus as mentioned by @GQuiz, I enjoy the 12 year old lot B as I can beg my local store who keeps me in-stock.  However, in the past year I have become a convert (for the most part) to Woodford's Double Oaked.  Great taste, easier to find but Woodford is proud of it. Just an opinion....

    Look for some of the Jefferson Presidential Select 18 year. My dealer has tasted both and thinks the Jefferson is just about as good, and might be easier to find. I like their regular very small batch more than and Woodford bourbon I've had.

    I am a bourborn lover also, but the best I can afford is woodford reserve.  If you find the Holy Grail let me know how it is and if it's worth the price.
