    BINGO.

    This is going to get better as it breathes. I'm drinking an 11 PVW15 right now, and it's good. Think of it as a 107 proof 05 or 08 WLW, and I think you'll like it more. Considering what 15 years run, and especially VWs, if you can get it for 60 it's worth it.

    I have yet to try this. I'll definitely have to hunt some up.

    That said, I've been going thru a spring 2011 release Pappy 15 opened in May 2011 that has been disappointing me thru Dec. 2011. While it's only 1 bottle, it's quite apart from many other Pappy 15s I've had. If I would take a stab it seems more like old Bernheim wheater to me.

    Is it marked 2011 or 2009?

    PHC2010 is obscenely good. In retrospect, I regret not hoarding like a freak. If you're into that whole dumb older wheater thing.

    Ouch. That's damning with faint praise.

    It's 2011 spring release. No doubt about it due to the retailer in question.

    The reason I ask is I've read that some of the bottles released in spring '11 were marked as being bottled in '09.

    You and me both...I'm a little more disapointed knowing that I left a case of it on the shelf for $48.99ea...
    You can find me in chat most nights on days ending with the letter y!
