    Cool Hi from Indiana

    Hi everyone! I’m new to collecting Bourbon, but not to drinking it. I know I will learn a lot on StraightBourbon.com. Now down to my first question: Where can I find a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle 23 Year Old Bourbon in SW Indiana? How much does it cost? I want to start off my new Bourbon collecting hobby right!! Thanks…

    Re: Hi from Indiana

    I'm assuming you are talking about Evansville.....

    PVW 23 will run you $300+ in Indiana.... Go across the river and you will be able to get it for $230-$250....


    Send me a PM if you need more precise info.....
    Cheers,

    Patience grasshopper. If you start at the top, or near it, you'll have no place to go but down. My advice would be to start lower and slower, and work your way up. You'd probably learn more too. Welcome aboard Viper. Cheers! Joe

    Hey Viper. Indianapolis native here. I know where several Pappy 23's are around here but like Birdman said...you're looking around $325.

    Talking Mission Accomplished!

    I'm very happy to have my first bottle of PVW 23! It's a little expensive in Indiana, but Jimmy crack corn and I don't care...

    I understand what you’re saying about where to start. Also,I did read “How To Get Started” and all the other threads for new members. I’ve drank Bourbon, both lower tier (Jim Beam White, etc.) as well as better-quality Bourbons like Elijah Craig 18yo, Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit, Knob Creek, etc, for many years. So, I just felt it was time to go high end…but no disrespect to your advice.

    Sorry about the weird format for my other posts. Copying from MS Word is causing me problems. I will fix it for future posts...I hope!
