Re: 2018 Roy Piper offer out!

I'm pretty sure this is just a small first wave of folks. Roy has had a lot on his plate of late and having been fortunate to try the 18 out of barrel a few times, he's smart to release slowly as I'm sure the demand is greater than the supply.

If you find one please let me know, I’d love to try it (it would be a Rudy K. special). Perhaps you mean the 05 Summa Old Vine. That is pretty great, I’ve had the pleasure of trying it. Not sure it is better than 07 SOV, but sure is rarer.
