I signed up for the list in 2005.
Got my first allocation 8/7/2014 while going through divorce. Had to decline at attornies advice. After divorce sent email asking to be put back on waitlist 3/16/2016. Got my allocation email being added back 8/24/2017. I have ordered all my allocation since but had not thought about adding to wish list. Is this how you get magnum allocations?

We have finalized our current offering and unfortunately, we were not able to add any of your Wish List requests to your current order.

Thank you for your understanding,

Christmas in March.

Fall 2018 offering arrived fine (61°F bottle temperature) today by UPS 2nd Day Air. Tissue-wrapped, in a styrofoam box (unlike the wooden case for the Spring offering).

FWIW, the route it took, according to UPS was (high temps were between 53° and 72°F):

Tues
8:50-11:18PM, Sylmar CA
Wed
4:23-4:46AM, Ontario CA
10:59AM-3:40PM, Louisville KY
5:32-6:37PM, Windsor Locks CT
7:30-9:01PM, East Boston MA
11:45PM-12:16AM, Watertown MA
Thu
4:15PM delivered

Yes, I'm anal retentive, but I'm only on 2 lists (this and Ridge).
Cheers,

Did anyone get the “sorry no allocation email” for this past offering. I’ve Always gotten it in the past and I would like to know if I should bother calling to make sure I’m still on the list. I’m sure I have a long ways to go since I only been signed up since April 2017
I got the email a few days ago about not yet making the list. So you should have received one by now as well?
