It’s that time of year again. WordPress is telling me daily that people are desperate for information on the 2012 fall releases of Pappy Van Winkle and the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection.
I’m as excited and anxious as everyone else. Unfortunately, I haven’t heard anything yet.
My advice to you, my friends, is to call your local whiskey merchant and ask.
Don’t have a preferred whiskey merchant? Then take this opportunity to go develop one. Get to know the whiskey guy (or gal) at your friendly neighborhood liquor store. It probably won’t get you to the top of this year’s Pappy waiting list, but it will pay off in other ways: recommendations on whiskers you may like, warnings about the bad stuff, and maybe…just maybe, a heads up about the next special release before the whiskey hits the shelves.
