    Re: Found Some Pappy Van Winkle 20Yr On The Way Home

    On my shopping trip to Mass. this weekend, I saw the PVW15 for $65 which I passed up for the $42 VW12 Lot B. Pappy 20 weighed in at around $94 if memory serves -- good eye, MJ.

    Re: Found Some Pappy Van Winkle 20Yr On The Way Home

    MJL, I am late with a response but my last purchase here in Louisville about 3 weeks ago yielded this..12 yr old Rip Van Winkle Lot B $40.22
    15 Yr old Pappy Van Winkle $40.62...The Van Winkle reserve price you mentioned might be a little high but not too bad..That is very good stuff and it might behoove you to get it when you have a chance..I also got the 10 yr old Old Rip Van Winkle 107 for $26.79..Hope this helps down the line.

    Re: Found Some Pappy Van Winkle 20Yr On The Way Home

    I have one bottle of Lot "B" left from a few years ago. I haven't had it since I got into the PVW15. Anyone compared the current Lot "B" to 3 or 4 years ago? I may pick one up soon for research purposes

    I can't comment on Lot B of 3 or 4 years ago.
    But the recent release is one of the best bourbons I have ever had.

    Yes sir, Oscar. I agree 100%. This year's release is outstanding!

    Oscar, I heartedly concur. Simply incredible stuff.

    Surprisingly, in local stores PVW 15 is currently only about $4 more than the Lot B. Makes the choice a little tougher... so, of course, I buy both

    Does anyone know if there's a way to date a bottle of Lot B?

    Does 04.6084 match anyone else's from this year, or is that number likely meaningless?

    Not totally meaningless. mine is the same and it's at least two years old. All my Pappy 15yo are 04.6074.01 and Old Rip 15yo is the same 04.6074 without the .01, so it means something I just don't think you can tell what year they are by that.

    I have a bottle in my bunker with the 04.6084 on it, I bought that bottle March '08.
    I have two bottles of the current release with 04.6084.01 on it.

    Re: Found Some Pappy Van Winkle 20Yr On The Way Home

    Thanks guys. Looks like I should get the newer one to compare them.

    Being impatient I emailed jvanwinkle (after calling and getting the machine), so if I get a response re: the number's meaning I'll post back.
