Yeah, I was going for one, but I missed by about a minute. Fortunately, bahwm already got us 3. And there are still 9 bottles on the way from the tour.

As for a guess to the new offer, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it's not going to be a Wellington offer at all. They don't have the time to offer us new wine...they're still labeling 1000+ bottles of the quasi-Duke.

Maybe a food-related offering is coming up next.

Maybe WD can talk the codeslaves into adding something to the order page on labrat and/or delivery delay.

Something like a check box to indicate availability for labrat that week. Or lack therof. And maybe another text box to request a delivery delay (travel that week or next week).


Or WD could just post the labrat shipments in the labrat thread on the World of Woot Wine forums .....

God I hope so, I can't afford more wine this week. If it's the Balsamic again though I'll probably be in. Even better if it was the olive oil

I could be wrong, but I thought it was more typical to have one labrat per bottle of the offer. That would mean there's only one missing. Maybe 2.

I thought it was 2 rats per bottle. That's how it was during the Chase offering (I know that one for sure).

Watching the rat pack over the past few months has shown that there's typically 2 rats per DIFFERENT bottle in the offering. Assuming there will be no rattage of the mystery bottle, that puts us at 6 rats.

I saw HitAnyKey42 on wine.woot! and clicked "I want one!"

From what I remember, it has always been 2 labrats per bottle in the offer. If it is the same wine, then only 2 labrats. With 3 wines (not counting the mystery wine), it should be 6. It could be more if WD shipped the mystery wine(s) also.

Isn't the true "Duke" supposed to come out soon? That would be my guess for the next offering. I would be in for a couple six packs.

Probably right, unless it is a higher level duke. Maybe even an Earl, Baron, or Lord.

I did enjoy their Pique-Nique wine at the tasting room last month, so will probably get whatever SB offers up.

Maybe its just a hook for Wooters. SB includes it, gets the mystery hunters interested and then doesn't woot it but it's great PR for the release - tricky and smart!

I guess it can mean that it might be today instead of tonight, or that there is not a Wellington offer tonight and it is something else altogether.

I am guessing there are more than a few that will be bummed if there is not another Wellington offer tonight.
