    Re: Bourbons from the Same Line: (Blind) Comparative Tastings and Thoughts

    A real sobering blind tasting is OWA paper label and Pappy 15. The reason I didn't pay $80+ per bottle this year.

    Its only a matter of time (not much either) until the remaining stocks of SW juice PVW are gone. At this point only the 20 and 23 are left. That was the whole point of JVW teaming with BT. The Weller line is an excellent line of wheats. The current runs of PVWs are little more than hand selected premium versions of this. Taking nothing away from the BT runs of PVW. But facts are facts.

    Proof again that any thread can turn into a Pappy thread given sufficient time.

    I posted the same thing earlier this week in a new member thread.

    There should be a Pappy law, like Godwin's law. Would we just call it Pappy's law? Or callmeox's law?

    Godwin's law
    (also known as Godwin's Rule of Nazi Analogies or Godwin's Law of Nazi Analogies[1][2]) is an observation made by Mike Godwin in 1990[2] that has become an Internet adage. It states: "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1."[2][3] In other words, Godwin observed that, given enough time, in any online discussion—regardless of topic or scope—someone inevitably makes a comparison to Hitler or the Nazis.

    Blind tastings are the most instructive and almost always surprising.

    Van Winkle has always been about more than bottling up remaining SW stocks (SW didn't make rye, for instance) and I expect the long term plans of partnering up with BT will last far beyond that.

    I can't believe that CoMo Godwinned a nascent Pappy thread.

    As far as the topic, I'm a fan of blind tastings and of the format of the BTOTY events. Keying in on house styles and removing label influence is very educational.

    Oh, and CoMo, Godwin is an idiot.
