    What is the highest priced 23 year olds bourbon?

    Have heard of some claims it is over $150/ 750 ml... highest I've ever seen is $125 US, $185 Japan.

    Well Gunner the only 23 year old bourbon that I am aware of for sale in the U.S. is Old Rip Van Winkle and I believe it's retail price is $179. Heaven Hill has a 23 year old for the Japanese market only, but I do not know the price.

    Re: What is the highest priced 23 year olds bourbon?

    Your question is at a perfect time.....I just got back from Heaven Hill....I have been in the advertising room........I have stocked the booth with things like shot glasses, lowball glasses, cigars etc.....I always use our products is my display.....I have scanned two bottles of the 23 year old Evan Williams..... This is a new look from the one that I had in the booth a few years back....The label and the bottle are different.....I asked what it cost....each.....$270.00

    The two bottles are live (see attachment)....It really attracts the folks who love bourbon....cause it's not everyday that you can actually touch and look at this rare and expensive bottling.....and by the way......I take them home with me every night......

    As for the next question that some of you might ask me.... NO..... I AIN'T GONNA OPEN IT OR SHARE IT WITH ANY ONE.....THEY ARE SINGED OUT IN MY NAME.......IN OTHER WORDS-----ON LOAN-----

    P.S. This bottling is export only-----Japan and France..........

    Re: What is the highest priced 23 year olds bourbon?

    I left last years Bourbon Fest on Saturday nite and drove straight to Louisville and Picked up my bottle of Pappy 23 I think I paid 122.50 for it . Did I need my head examined? probably But By God I've got it and I haven't seen any of it around lately . I wanted some of it from the first time I saw it , but when I found out that they only bottled 3000 bottles of it I figured I better get in or out. It remains sealed for now and I have an expressed purpose for it . It took 23 years to get where it is no use getting in a hurry now.

    Re: What is the highest priced 23 year olds bourbon?

    Sorry for this repeat of a post... but about three years my local (near my office) liquor store went out of business. (Believe me I did MY part to keep them going!) They only reduced their prices by 20% and that was only on the last day! One exception... Pappy 23 was from a different wholesaler so they couldn't send it back for credit. I got it for $100! I've been meaning to open it for the last two Mardi gras, but it didn't work out (out of town and then ill). Next Mardi gras should be the day!

    I'll just construct it in my mind and laugh at this point. It really is funny fellow Bourbonians .
