For those of you that are whiskey drinkers and can appreciate the finer things in life, I have a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle 20 year old bourbon that I got before the current astronomical prices that I only bring out for special occasions. Sipping on some right now to celebrate this awesome class...cheers!
If whisky drinker here! I’ve been wanting a bottle of Pappy for a long time but can’t find it, and if I can the price is tripple or even 10 times more than the amount that’s advertised on their website.
I'm somewhat of a boubon geek, and have a decent collection. Bourbon has become the next big thing in booze in the last few years, and pappy is the most sought after one. If ya didn't get any a few years ago when it was still obtainable, the only way to get it now (if you don't want to pay 10 to 20 times MSRP) is to enter a store lottery or know someone...that's why I'm consuming what I have sparingly, because I probably won't get anymore for a long time.
For us mere mortals, here's a couple more, outside of Wellers/Buffalo, that might just take the edge off that PVW longing... Makers 46 and Four Roses Single Barrel. Although unwheated, it is higher rye than their standard.
I’ve been trying to find some Blanton’s here in the Greenville area. After calling around yesterday one store had one bottle left and the guy hinted it would be about $120. Not trying to spend quite that much. Any suggestions fellow bourbon or whiskey geeks?
I wish. Used to have a nice cigar with my bourbon, but as I've gotten older it really wrecks my sinuses...yeah, I know you don't inhale cigar smoke, but even the inadvertent inhalation of the 2nd hand smoke does a number on me.
