    Maybe if people don't buy it, they will lower the price?

    Possibly if/when the hype machine rolls on to gobble up the next big thing the "rare" whiskey market may float slowly back down to reality, but I don't see this happening anytime soon. Its a pandemic that's getting worse before our eyes. For all the old-timers and true connoisseurs of these brands who would boycott (this has already been happening), there's a evergrowing human ocean of newbs and opportunists mobbing the storefronts like walkers.

    Just saw on the PVW Facebook page that the California allotment has shipped but they do not expect it in stores until Dec 1st. I will still continue to call Total Wine regularly though. If I hear anything I will be sure to post ASAP.

    Thanks. After *cough* several calls, last week I decided to give the staff a break from me for a little while. I couldn't help myself from thinking "the one morning I don't call will be the day it comes!" but like you said, nothing before Dec. 1 seems likely. And Dec. 4 was when it hit in 2012. I'll also be looking for the BTAC which reports have as arriving around the same time. I almost ordered an older bottling of Thomas H Handy from Hi-times, but even at $125 plus shipping it's hard to pull the trigger knowing the suggested retail on all of these is around $70. Ima wait and see.

    Yeah...was able to get a bottle of the PVW 15 y.o. Looks like I am still on my quest to get a bottle of the Rye.

    You sure worked your ass off for it, so it's well-deserved. Considering that celebrities and the rich and famous can't even score Pappy, a bottle of 15 is pretty sweet. Hope I can try it someday.

    As scarce as the rye is to begin with, the theft sure didn't help matters. What a shame. Lets hope next year their output is strong. Luckily, there is some awesome rye out there that one can drink without guilt or worry of a diminishing and irreplaceable bottle. Ima order a few bottles soon. Before they too get gone.
