Greetings everyone -

Today, I was fortunate enough to purchase my first bottle of Pappy 15 from the best-stocked store I've seen in Florida to date. Wish I had a place like this in my hometown...

Anyway, when I opened it up, I could tell the cork was a little 'iffy' and I took my time to gently open it without breaking any of the cork. Once I got it out, I noticed that it is cracked all the way down to the bottom and won't stand too many more openings.

If any of you out there have a top (including cork) for a bottle of Pappy 15 that you are done with or could spare, please PM me and let me know. I'd be happy to pay for the shipping costs or whatever I need to do to make sure I can enjoy this bottle without fear of snapping the cork off into the bottle!

Thanks in advance for your help,
Chris

Are you serious?

If so, well, I just finished a Lot B and don't mind swapping the cap with my open bottle of PVW 15. PM me your address.

As a temporary protective measure I suggest you try placing a 4 inch square of plastic, kitchen wrap over the opening before you reinsert the cork.

Yours truly,

You guys are indeed the best, knew I could find some help here! Thanks to all who responded - I think I have got a replacement cap on the way through the generosity of one of the SB.comers.

Bluesbassdad - great idea about the plastic wrap. On my way to do that now.

fishnbowljoe - the place is called Broudy's Liquors. It is up in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. Had all variations of Pappy (including 23 y.o.) and plenty of other good stuff. Way more inventory than anything I am used to.

If this happens again I bet BT would send you one if you called and asked.

I have a drawer-full of corked tops that I use for just such emergencies. I find that WT101 tops work well for most applications.

Funny, I just brought up an extra open bottle of Pappy 20 from the bunker and looked down at the cork and saw antlers--it's a GT Stagg cork, cuz the Pappy cork cracked. I think some liquor stores sell corks. Also, there's all kinds of stoppers for wine; they may work, too. I like the idea of inserting the cork with some plastic wrap, too.
