    If it's the Estate Bottled 101, the nod has to go to OB. The OB bottle, that is.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    Re: James E Pepper 15 year?

    There are two bottles available of the JEP Rye 15yo locally and I was thinking about picking it up (139.00). I'm glad I decided to come home and check the forums first.

    I got a bottle for $60+ have not tried. Wish I could find any Pappy for $100 let alone the 15 yr. Local on Craigslist will be over $500 for PVW 15

    Hmmm... maybe I should go back and pick one up, but I think the price was $115.00 if I remember correctly.Wonder if it's worth it?

    Nope. They go for $70 around here and still might not be worth it.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Re: Currently Available Age-Stated Bourbons

    I paid $60 for my JEP15 bourbon, and it's very meh. Not bad, not great, I get a dill note that doesn't play well with the corn sweetness. And I've revisited this bottle a few times since opening it a couple weeks ago. If it was $40 it'd be properly priced, and I will not be buying this again. This, the JEP 15 rye and the JEP NAS bourbon have all underwhelmed, but the NAS rye is fine IMO.

    The JEP rye actually isn't NAS, per se; there's a very small note on the back label that reads "Aged over 2 years". So it's not an exact age statement, but there's no absence of one either.

    I'll chalk that up to being a straight whiskey and not because they are offering some kind of definitive age statement. Unless you're suggesting I refer to it as the JEP 2 yo rye? I guess in considering that most every straight whiskey is not NAS?
