    Hey I'm not knocking you...if you can get someone to part with a ORVW 15/107 for a Pappy 20 more power to you. Pappy 20's are pretty easy to come by where ORVW 15's aren't...so why would someone want to trade a very hard to find bottle for one that they can currently find on the shelf?
    I would venture to guess people with stashes of ORVW 15's aren't looking to trade them for $$$...they're going to be looking to get other hard to find bottles in return...at least that has been my experience when trading bottles like the ones you listed. Good luck with your search!

    Yeah I guess I was hoping a couple people that like oak would take a more-aged $120 bottle for something they paid a lot less for that is less-aged. Since I'm pretty new to this I don't have much that's hard to find (unless somebody wants some rare tequila). I doubt I'll find an ORVW 15, but maybe hopeful for an old Pappy 15 or ORVW 10/107?

    What someone paid for a bottle rarely comes into the equation when looking to trade based on my experience. ORVW 15/107, Pappy 15, and Lawrenceburg ORVW 10/107 are all better whiskey IMO then Pappy 20. When I trade with people it's about getting bourbon that I want to try or really enjoy and trade value is typically different the purchase price.

    In a better world I would have more Elludium to trade for Unobtanium.

    not to mention that Pappy 20 is at 90 proof. It loses points for that.

    Is that the 90 proof Unobtanium or the 107 proof?

    South Carolina may not be getting any VWFRR. Everything else is in and one the shelves. but RNDC did not get any rye in their shipment. They are not sure why or if it will come in later.

    Re: Pappy fall allocation

    Very scarce in western TN. Any stores that got it only received a single bottle. I got on couple of lists early on and managed to snag some but not what I had hoped. I guess the allocation became a super allocation this time around.

    Re: Pappy fall allocation

    Happily just scored another 2 bottles of VWFRR today... Both are "B" series.

    Up to 6 in total on-hand. I'm starting to breath a little easier now that I've got some good stock in the bunker! Add to that my 4 Saz 18's and 3 Vintage Rye 21's and I'm in good shape for the looming apocalypse (whenever it arrives)!
