Alert-Pappy Van Winkle bourbon stolen from distillery

It was scarce enough before but now..."Roughly 65 cases of 20-yearold Pappy Van Winkle bourbon were stolen in what looks to be an inside job from a secure area at Buffalo Trace Distillery’s Frankfort facility." 

So, if you suddenly find some available, buy it before it gets confiscated.

    There was a theft from a Toronto liquor store a few months back. One bottle of Scotch worth $50,000. They caught the guy but the scotch bottle was empty.

  • I saw that and cried a little. I can't find it now. Can't imagine has difficult it will be after this.

  • Inside job, probably by the CEO to drive prices up even further. Pure, evil, genius.

    Did you see the value? $26,000 that gain grab around $78.000 on secondary markets.

    It will be released again next month from what the local total wine manager told me. He told me the day they get deliveries from that distributor and said call every morning and the day it comes in to be there before noon or I have to wait till next year.

    He thinks it will be October and that will be it until next year. In the past, it was twice a year and was pretty much always in stock. Now this cult thing has taken off and Pappy is very hard to find. I think Woodford is better anyway. Marketing hype coupled with limited production.
