Melinda’s Reserves
I would like to complete my collection of Melinda’s XXXMAS Reserve and the XXXXTRA Reserve. I need the following years…

XXXMAS: 1998, 1999, 2001 to the present.
XXXXTRA: 1998 & 2000.

I also have an extra ’95 1st edition XXXMAS if anyone is interested.
Thanks ~ Randy

Numbered 3 A.M. Reserve
I am looking for a 3 AM. A numbered one, to replace one I opened due to finding that the wax was cracked and thought was ruined. It does make a good chili though, that’s for sure. The bottle I have is #8220, anything near that would put things right, but I ain’t picky. The 2 AM I got at the same time is looking a little out of place since the 3 got moved to the fridge. I have an extra Le Million that I would be willing to part with if anyone is interested. ~ DK

Dave’s 2001 Private Reserve
Looking for a 2001 Dave’s Private Reserve to complete my Dave’s set. ~ Adam
