Kentucky authorities are dangling a $10,000 reward for information that helps solve the disappearance of some sought-after bourbon.

It's become a compelling mystery in a state that produces 95 percent of the world's bourbon. What happened to 65 cases of 20-year-old Pappy Van Winkle bourbon and nine cases of 13-year-old Van Winkle Family Reserve rye? The whiskey was taken from the Buffalo Trace Distillery at Frankfort in mid-October.

The missing whiskey is valued at more than $26,000.

Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton said Monday the reward could provide "a heck of a Christmas" for someone who helps crack the case.

Melton says a crime stopper's group put up $1,000, but he declined to identify any other donor.

The sheriff says his detectives have interviewed more than 100 people.
