    Availability of Pappy 15?

    Is anyone else having trouble finding some PVW 15?

    I've seen a lot of 23 years and I know of a few 20s, but in Colorado, I can't seem to find a 15 year to save my life. Lot B is a bit easier to come by as well. I wish I could trade some of CO's BTAC stock for some local Pappy.

    Re: Availability of Pappy 15?

    Yeah, I can't really find the 15 any place by me these days and the few times I've seen it around it's disappeared pretty quick. The PVW bottles continue to grow in popularity and most people probably buy the cheapest expression they can find. Usually all of the 23's are still sitting there long after the 15's and 20's sell out (which usually sell out shortly after the 15's...). Get a VWSR12 ("Lot B.") or, better yet, treat yourself to a 20. :] Most will probably disagree but I think they're both a lot better than the 15.

    If you're really desperate for a bottle and have a deep pocket i've seen a big ticketed one on a unmentionable auction site for purchase.

    It is no secret that I love that elixir of the gods, bourbon.

    I've tried all of the Van Winkle products and I've got two Lot B's at home. I'll be picking up some ORVW 107 tomorrow.

    I prefer the 15 to the 20, but neither are bad. Right now, if I spend 60+ on a bottle, it's going to be a Stagg or Handy.

    The 15'2 are the rarest of the VW's in my area and I would contend the best of the bunch. Next it's the 20, lot B and then 10/107. IMO of course.

    the 15 is hard, as is the 13 year old rye. Scarcity of AAA bothers me the most.

    Thumbs up Re: Availability of Pappy 15?

    My preferred source in California just received a little less than a case, as well as some Pappy 20yo and ORVW 10/107 (I've only seen the 90 proof up until now).

    I picked up six Pappy 15's and three 10/107's .
