    Sorry to bump in from a different angle here - there's more decanters? I thought it was a one-time thing.

    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.

    It was a one time thing, somehow partysource got a couple extras from the one years ago. There is no new decanter.

    That's what I thought. I was hoping maybe it had come back - I had a 2oz sample from a very generous friend but thought maybe there was a chance to experience more. Thanks for the info.

    I have not opened the new 2011 bottle yet.

    One of my friends, however, did a side by side and could tell a slight difference. Nothing drastic though.

    I can ask his permission to post his tasting notes here if you'd like.

    I would be interested in reading his tasting notes if you get a chance to post them.

    I'm only 6 months new to this whole wonderful world of bourbon and still have a lot to learn, but I thought the decanters were an annually released item? Do you mind please clarifying for me....was the decanter set itself a one time release or was the non-standard PVW23 proof juice the one time release?

    It was a one time limited edition release under the Old Rip Van Winkle label that came out in November 2009. You can read more about it in this thread here http://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...+year+decanter

    Re: Pappy fall allocation

    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:

    http://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...ad.php?t=16601

    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.
