I have a feeling I'm going to end up with a bottle of Blanton's haha. Or even worse, shut out of anything.

Any word on when this drawing goes down? I’m interested to hear if anyone actually gets anything worthwhile.

FAQ site still says late February... I expect to strike out again... Maybe I'll get the opportunity to buy a bottle of Blantons in reward my loyalty, lol

Thank you. The information is helpful but Total Wine keep finding new ways to screw with this program: “we won’t tell you exactly when or what you’re buying until we decide... but we’re giving you a two week window during a pandemic to turn up to a highly trafficked store and purchase it. Enjoy!”

LOL... Pretty accurate summary of their program. Once I hit grand reserve last year, I've shifted my buying to other stores almost entirely because of the changes to this program... And have no plans of going back.

Weird system. I have far fewer than 40,000-75,000 points. TW should do better.

Shut out as well. How do they not even have enough Blanton’s to offer everyone a bottle? This sucks. I can’t believe I’m still surprised by this.

Got a Blantons, could be a hell of a lot worse. Don't know if it's worth getting grand reserve for though...

I got a Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 Year. I think I had over 200K in points but I bought 2019 Boudreaux futures through them.

Got a 20 year. Pretty psyched. I had a lot more points last year than this year and was empty handed last go round. Nature of a lottery I guess...

Nice! The lotteries are state specific right? (So I’d be competing against everyone from California, right?)

Yeah, nothing here. I had enough points for Grand Reserve, but I don't think that it included my 2019 futures. I tried calling over the holidays, but could never get someone to answer. Next year. Hahaha.

Also got a Blanton's. Good friend with 50,000 points got one too. Last year I got a RVW '12. The only thing that seemed fair was a friend who was shut out last year got a WLW this year. He's happy. The strange thing is we hear employees are "lucky" and getting better stuff than the customers.

That has to be anecdotal though... it's not like TW employees are literally picking raffle tickets at each store.

I got this email.

Priority Access update
Thank you for being a Grand Reserve Member and signing up for the 2020 Priority Access to Pappy Van Winkle and Buffalo Trace Antique Collection. We wanted to let you know about an update on the selection timeline.

Our team is working hard to get these Whiskeys as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, it’s taking longer than expected so we’ve had to revise our timeline for selection to late March.

Once we receive our supply, enrolled Grand Reserve members will be randomly selected to buy each Whiskey available.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Stay tuned to your email and Rewards account for updates and results. And thanks again for being a Grand Reserve member.

Blanton’s is singlehandedly the most overrated bourbon, even at $65. Great for taters. Only thing I from Blanton’s is the Gold.
