    Old Rip Van Winkle 10yr 107 proof.

    Haven't seen a thread on here that isnt 5+ years old. Anything change on this bourbon?

    I have a 15yr and 20yr family reserve waiting for me and he asked if I wanted a 10yr 107 proof also for $40. It worth it? I am already spending near $200 for those first two and honestly don't want to spend an other $50 after taxes. What does it compare too the best?

    I figured since its hard to find also, might as well have it in my collection. Any info to help make my decision please let me know. Thanks!

    It's a great bourbon, and very much worth the price. I don't know what else it would compare to, for my money it's the best wheater at that age and price range, and maybe even a few above its price range.* To quote an old Irish poet, it's magically delicious.

    *maybe Weller 12 is as good, depends on the day.

    Josh nailed it exactly (well, not really "exactly" --- but I needed to pad my response)

    I was just in a store the other day and bypassed a row of ORVW 10/107 for $29 each. I have 3 or 4 in the bunker so didn't feel compelled to purchase.

    It ranges in price from 29 to 38 'round here depending on where you go. And I will echo what everyone else says about it. It's like Weller 12 in as much as it is one of those bourbons that I would pay more for...but I'm glad I don't have to.

    It's $40 (well $39.95 +tax) in MI, but it's also worth it.

    And just as there of those of you who can purchase it at ANY price, there are those of us who have never seen a bottle on the shelf, ever, in six different states. So yeah, if I was lookin' for some I'd pay 40-45 bucks.... especially at what people want for Pappy 15 around here.
