Buffalo Trace Antique Collection Release Date?

Hi All,

I'm hoping to score a bottle of Sazerac 18 this year (and maybe the William Larue Weller as well). I've been too late the past couple of years so I thought I'd be proactive this time.

Anyone know when they will be released?

  1. Usually October. It shows up in different parts of the country at different times. Your best bet is to call your local retailer but they'll probably put your name on a list.

    1. nothing firm, but initial news finally in. So late sept/early oct. At least some info is available

        So I see rumors of the demise of Eagle Rare 17 yr were somewhat exaggerated.

          And thanks sku. I put my name on a list. Apparently some other people were already ahead of me :-(

            Keep in mind late September/early oct release means that is when they will give wholesalers their allocations and begin to accept orders from wholesalers. There is probably about a month delay from then before it will start showing up at retail.
