    They increase supply very gradually every year....problem is that the popularity has soared over the past 2-3 years. It's good (great actually), but not that good to through the trouble of getting it anymore. There's plenty of good bourbon out there.

    Tips pour in about huge Pappy Van Winkle bourbon heist after Kentucky cops offer reward






    Sixty-five cases of bourbon valued at a total of $26,000 were stolen from a distillery more than a month ago. Authorities say it was probably an inside job.

    By Elizabeth Chuck, Staff Writer, NBC News

    Authorities are taking a fresh look at the October theft of nearly $26,000 worth of one of the world's rarest and most prized bourbon whiskeys after receiving dozens of tips in the investigation.

    The Franklin County, Ky., sheriff's office on Monday announced a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the October disappearance of two types of whiskey from Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Ky. — most of which was the distillery's world-class Pappy Van Winkle 20-Year Reserve bourbon.

    Investigators got about 30 tips from all over the country overnight.

    "Ten thousand dollars is a great motivator, especially with Christmas right around the corner," Sheriff Pat Melton said.

    Pappy Van Winkle starts at a retail price of $200 a bottle, but is often hard to find, as the bourbon has won multiple international competitions deeming it the "world's finest."

    And Buffalo Trace distills Pappy Van Winkle in very limited releases, aged for a varying number of years.

    About 230 bottles in total went missing from the distillery on Oct. 15: Sixty-five cases containing an average of three bottles each of the 20-Year Reserve bourbon, and nine cases of a 13-year-old rye.

    The 20-Year Reserve was valued at $25,350 based on a wholesale price of $130 per bottle, and the less coveted rye, with a wholesale value of $25, was valued at $675.

    Tips from as far as Maryland have come in since officials announced the reward yesterday. There are no suspects or persons of interest, but investigators believe the theft may have been an inside job.

    "Where the bourbon was located, it was restricted access," Melton said. "But we're looking at everything."

    More than 100 Buffalo Trace Distillery employees have been interviewed as part of the investigation, officials said. The sheriff's office notified the employees about the reward a week before the public found out about it.

    "We're making progress and I think ultimately we'll be successful," Melton said.

    NBC News' M. Alex Johnson contributed to this report.
    Even odds its a publicity stunt, but that seems to be a disproportionate amount of cop time and resources looking for some booze. And a reward for missing liquor? Common.

    Maxim is blocked at work Actually makes sense though.

    Have you tried it? Nice to see another bourbon come out of NY. I've had the Hudson a long while ago but I honestly can't remember much about it and there's one from Brooklyn I had recently that was pretty good (blanking on the name) as well. Edit: in looking it up, pretty sure it was Widow Jane - not bad at all.

    I was at Fette Sau the other night and had some Smooth Ambler from West Virginia. Really really good. On the flip side, the barman recommended Peach Street from Colorado - I almost spit it out. So much for the recommendations.

    All good stuff. There's two different Caribbean Casks, one has a bit of a rum hint to it. I want to say there's another 15 yo Macallan other than the FO, but I can't swear to it.

    That's the only one, my mistake. I had it confused with the 17yo Rum Cask. Either way, quite good.

    Had some of this last night to celebrate passing my first semester of nursing:

    Out of curiosity, how much does a bottle cost in the US?
