I love bourbon and have yet to get my hands on a bottle of this amazing spirit. If there is any lumberjock out there that finds or is willing to part with a bottle please contact me.

They come in 15year old, 20 year old, and 23 year old. I will buy the unopened bottle and pay for shipping. I will also send you a great thank you bundle of lumber and veneer.

-- 2014 will be a different year...at least for me it will.

They only took a small amount, but when they produce so few it makes things difficult. Someone will get caught, but I am going to guess that fine bourbon is being enjoyed by someone right now!

Have you tried Booker?? Certainly not as exclusive ($$) as Pappy’s, but pretty damn good. Its a mere $60 a bottle. Although my “daily drinker” is Four Roses.

As an aside, I’ve never understood the point of an excessively long aging process – for bourbon.
Scotch makes more sense. Scotch is stored, in an oak barrel, in a Scottish cellar where the temperature doesn’t vary much. The wood doesn’t expand an contact, so it takes the oak flavor a lot longer to interact with the whiskey.
Bourbon, on the other hand, is stored in a ‘new’ oak barrel….in a KY or TN warehouse. The temperatures are all over the place. After 4-5 years, I couldn’t imagine you’d be gaining much after that. 20 years seems silly. But then again, I’ve never produced a drop of bourbon in my life, and I’ve never tried pappy’s- so what do I know??

Booker is on my list to buy also. Never been a fan of Four Roses, but a lot of the guy I play poker with like it.

I would agree with the aging problem, but the way they produce Pappy seems to work. I have had samples of all the years and you can definitely taste the difference between 15, 20, and 23 year. It also helps that this is a wheat instead of a rye.

It is an expensive bottle of bourbon, but it would not be my daily drinker. Special events only!
