OT - Pappy Van Winkle SOLD OUT :(

Greetings friends,
The lady in line in directly in front of me bought the last bottle. Anyone get any today? If you are considering passing a bottle along, please keep me in mind.. Might be a jar of my famous fresh homemade brisket rub in it for ya!
Much thanks for reading.

    Total wine gets it once a year and it sells out that day.
  • I own a liquor store in Long Island N.Y. and I checked with my supplier and it's not available at this time so it;s not just a regional think I assume that the distillery is out I imagine that they are waiting for whats in the barrels to mature

    My local place said none since last Christmas and likely that'll be the time this year. Ho Ho Ho.
  • I sell it for a distributor in Illinois and can't even get an ETA on when we will have it again.
  • I like bourbon. That being said, any booze you have to be on a list to get, keep calling somebody to check its availability and probably mortgage the house when it finally is available is not worth it. Gimme some Woodford or Makers and I'll be happy. Its plentiful, reasonably priced and very good.

    I live in SC. I am supposedly on waiting list for every liquor store in SC that carries. Almost all told me 100+ on list and they'll get 1-3 bottles a year. So I am anxious.
    Here is my offer: I will buy a bottle from anyone on here for cost of bottle + 15% plus shipping. If you live within few hours drive of me I will pick up and give you some.

    A few years ago I bought a bottle of Pappy's 20 year old. Hard to get even then. Was it good? Yes. Would I buy another @ $200 a bottle? No.

    Too many other really nice bourbons that are very good and obtainable.

    65 cases went missing, sounds like a lot, but there are only 3 bottles to a case, as Firemanyz said, about 200 bottles.

    I'm trying desperately to find a bottle for my best friends wedding. Completely out of luck.

    I must have won the lottery.  Just got a call from my "Beer/Liquor Guy" and got a bottle of Pappy 20!

    Early Christmas for me.

    Hope everybody else has the same luck.  Cheers!

    The total wine in Alpharetta hasn't got theirs yet. They just told me they are supposed to get them sometime Friday and I have Friday off so I know where I will be.
