Securing a bottle of Pappy locally will be more difficult than last year

Finding & snagging a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle bourbon locally is always a difficult task every year. But ths year has a lower-than-normal yield will make the rare whiskey even harder to come by this fall & winter.

Buffalo Trace Distillery, which produces the exotic bourbon-whisky with the Van Winkle family, said in a news release last week that this year's production of Pappy Van Winkle was about half of last year's.

"When bourbon ages over 15 years, much is lost to the angel's share. Many of the 53 gallon oak barrels often yield less than 20 gallons," Kris Comstock, the bourbon marketing director for Buffalo Trace, said in a statement. "Unfortunately this year we experienced poor yields on the older Van Winkle whiskeys."
