    I think the current VSOF is ok also. Not bad, but nothing to write home about (and probably over priced at $30.99). It's just an alright wheater - not nearly as good as the Weller line, IMO.

    I have a bottle of VSOF that has opened up nicely, but I don't think there's anything about it that would lead me to pick it as a wheater in a blind tasting. Definitely different from the others out there. Try to sample it somewhere before you buy.

    I actually haven't had a pour of this in a long time...it might be time to revisit.

    Found a place with PH Golden Anniversary at $190.

    Should I buy one bottle OR two bottles?

    If you have the means, buy two. If you end up not liking it (which seems unlikely, but still...) you can always unload the second one.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    The price seems a little high, I've seen (and passed on) multiple bottles at $150. Then again, that might just be the going rate in NYC.

    Did you buy yours recently or when it was released two years ago?

    I haven't seen any at that price but if they're still out there I would amend my recommendation.
