So sad.... it's a really frustrating process to even find the stuff (outside of e-bay).
There was a small liquor store in a suburban strip mall that had a couple of bottles when I randomly popped in last year. Being a newbie and not knowing any better, I didn't grab them. A couple of weeks later, I went back for them and they were gone. The owner said he had them in the case for months - probably the 2010 release.
So it is possible, but it's like finding a needle in the haystack.
Late last year, I picked up the 15 and 20 year, both from Bevmo. They never made it to the shelves though, you need to find out when they are expected to arrive and ask them to call you when they do. I was politelty persistant and would check in every now and then. They got to know me. Even then it's a matter of luck as obviously the demand far outweighs the supply.
Yeah... it's a pain in the a**. I actually bought a bottle of Rip Van Winkle (10yr) today for $25... it's no Pappy 15, but it will do... got it at Kroger.
I have had the devil's cut... OAKY is how I'd describe it. If that sounds good to you, you will probably like it.
Anything Old Forrester is good, Birthday, Single Barrel, Signature... the birthday is a little overpriced.
One of my friends works for Brown-Forman, and I'm hoping she brings a bottle of Double Oaked Woodford Reserve tonight.
It's a great time to be a bourbon drinker.
