Makes me wonder how long they were on the shelf and whether I need to make another trip to see our friends
    If you'd be going up from the LA area, I'd be more than happy to buy some extras off of you.

    Dear Pappy,

    You are an old friend, quite dependable, and you have impeccable taste. Truth be told though, your popularity has caused our friendship to waiver. Adding to the fact we will be spending less time together is the fact I have a new love I am pursuing. I met an 18 year old named Sazerac...so spicy and so lovely...I would raid my bunker for Saz.

    Sincerely,

    Lost

    I'm pretty sure a friend of mine cleaned that place out of Saz 18 about 2 weeks ago. He told me there were multiples of all the BTAC's, but only 3 of the Saz's -- of which he bought them all.

    Seattle members - if you got shut out on PVW20, PVW23, or VWFRR pm me within the next 24 hours, I might be able to help you as I have a lead on a handful of bottles.

    Just to clarify, I am not flipping anything here, just trying to garner some goodwill and help a local SB member or two who couldn't find what they wanted. I won't help flippers and price-gougers so you must be a SB member for a year with a few posts under your belt. That said, preference for those with Saz 18 or GTS('09,'10) to trade though

    As if the Pappy thing couldn't get worse, it is my understanding that PVW is on the cover of the print edition of the latest Wine Spectator magazine. The biggest, most influencial wine rag in the game. Might be fun to watch eBay for the next week or two.

    We don't need more wine people to figure out this bourbon thing.

    I picked up this issue at the airport yesterday and was happy to see that the main article was written by Lew Bryson (not surprising, since Whisky Advocate, née Malt Advocate, is now a publication of M. Shanken). It's a good read, even for those of us who've been around bourbon for a while, and there's a nice review section.

    Good call. eBay prices for the PVW15 are topping $200...WTF? I would rather slowly sip on rotgut moonshine than $200 Pappy 15.

    I just recently sold an extra bottle to another SB member who could not find any at the price I paid for it ($70). Looks like I left $130 on the table - oh well, it found a good home and karma will bring me a BMH23.
