    James E Pepper 15 year?

    Anyone had this? Any thoughts? I searched and saw some stuff on James E Pepper but could not tell if that was an age stated bourbon or NAS that was being discussed. Anyway, it is $60 for the 15 year. Just wondering if anyone has had it and has any notes on it.

    I only saw this listed one place online. I did purchase a bottle of the rye last week and it is good!

    I called a store today looking for some PHC 12 and they were pushing this stuff hard saying that it was a limited edition like the Parkers. When I asked where it was distilled the guy said "Indiana." Nobody has had this yet? I'm more inclined to spend $60 on the better part of two bottles of ETL than this.

    I bought a bottle a few months ago and thought it was wretched stuff. Thin, lots of burning. I thought it was a joke that it is supposedly 15 years old. I stayed away from Smooth Ambler because I believe it is the same LDI bourbon

    I am "this guy", and let's be clear- the bottles we had were the original release- not the 15 year old. Haven't tried it yet, and frankly not in a hurry to.

    Hey you, thanks for the correction. I assumed it was the 15. I didn't realize there were different ones. And I'm in no hurry to drop $60 on it either.

    Got a bottle a couple of weeks ago. Maybe it's from a different batch, but I thougt it was excellent. For what it's worth, took it to a local highly resepected bourbon bar to share with the staff, and they thought it was excellent. Found this review - http://www.drinkhacker.com/2013/06/0...r-expressions/

    I also noticed this is now $100-$120 most places online. Pepper 15 is now more expensive than Pappy 15.
