    I am a bad friend

    First let me start by saying I do not own a bar or plan on making money of this prank

    I have a friend who is a pappy snob
    he wont drink ANY spirits other than pappy.
    he buys bottles of pappy on eBay for 2-300 a bottle.

    This is the same guy who wont smoke anything other than Cuban cigars.
    even a premium opus X is not good enough

    I just got an empty bottle of pappy 20 and want to fill it with something else and tell him its pappy VW 20.
    he drinks enough to know the diff between jack daniels and Pappy but i think he is full of it when he says he can even taste the diff between pappy 10 & 12.

    what has a similar flavor profile to pappy 20, that is readily available that i can fill my bottle with and test it out on my snob friend. I want to shut him up once and for all.

    I drink beer (when i drink) so i come to you guys for ideas

    Thanks & try not to hate

    Vintage 17 (the bourbon, not the rye)(duh!)

    Not exactly common, but on the other hand, doesn't disappear three nanoseconds after hitting the shelf. $50-70 depending where you live.

    Try him out on the old SB blend, mix half and half Old Weller Antique 107 and WL Weller 12. Suggesting this as an option since Vintage 17 is already taken.

    Fill it with rebel yell. Then he'll REALLY be embarassed when he can't tell the difference!

    SB blend, but instead of 50/50, maybe 70/30 W12 to OWA to get more wood influence.

    When reading this, I got the weird feeling that this guy was going to try to refill Pappy bottles with mentioned likenesses and resell them on eBay.

    Re: I am a bad friend

    I think the 10 and 12 are VERY different

    But they aren't pappies, "just" van winkle.

    The one I would choosr woild be Jefferson reserve for the prank
