You knew of the decanter and also bought it for that price without knowing that minimal info? Wow.
It was a very limited edition that was not released this year and was a one time deal for that and the first time it was bottled at not the regular 23yr old bottle proof.
"The last time I turned down a whiskey, I didnít understand the question."
Again, for clarification, it was a decanter set released in December of 09/January 2010. Old Rip Van Winkle 23 year old 114 proof , not Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 23 year old at 95.6 proof. Joe

To add to my honorable friend's photos, see these threads on ORVW 23:
To me, the Old Rip 23 set disproves the hypothesis that bourbon enthusiasts aren't ever suckered into buying bourbons just because they have fancy packaging.
