    I would take that trade all day long. I love the PVW20, prefer it over all the others. The 23 may be a tad better but not when you factor in the price. I do enjoy the Lot B when I can find it at a decent price though.

    Best regards, Tony

    It's worth noting that, for the time being, this isn't true. Lot B still contains some Bernheim juice. So you are not just paying for someone's Weller 12 barrel picks.

    I've drank my way through a few bottles of both Weller 12 and Lot B over the years, and have a slight preference for Lot B. Not a triple the price preference, but a preference nonetheless.

    I believe CADMixes is correct that the Lot B is at least part Bernheim bourbon. It's my favorite VW and I much prefer it over the Weller 12. Sorry Joe.
    Normal is an illusion. What is normal to the spider, is chaos for the fly.

    Re: What's the deal with Lot B???

    I like Lot B, drank a lot of it over the years and it's worth what customers are willing to pay. For myself, no, the current cost exceeds my price/value requirements.

    I also no longer buy Delamain Pale & Dry Cognac for the same reason.

    I like it and I've got several in the bunker but had to pass this time when it was offered at $65. The most I've paid was $44 and that was for the Spring 2011 allocation.

    I'm a long time Lot B fan. We don't talk about it much to keep it under the radar of the Van Winkle idiots. I have heard other people call it "Pappy 12-year-old."

    Should we really believe that there's still Bernheim juice being used??

    With the US prices being almost a third of Australian prices, you guys are getting a bargain..... I'd pay $50 for a Lot B any day of the week.... in fact, at that price I'd buy a case!

    Cherry picked casks are the ones I am looking for. The lot B is one of my favourite bourbons, and I appreciate distilleries and producers that do the effort of finding these, instead of vatting everything together
