Out at the Kentucky Bourbon Fest. Stumbled into a restaurant that would give you a glass of 23 year old PVW for $50. Well, I have never had it so finally decided what the heck (goes for $95 a glass in DC). First, I was shocked out how smooth it was. At 23 years it should be, but that doesnt mean it wasnt wonderful to feel. Was it the best I have ever had? No. But it is very good. Like most of you guys have said, you can get good stuff for a lot cheaper. I picked up a $7 bottle of Heaven Hill that is damn good. Not quite as good as PVW but at $7 it is a steal. Which begs the question what is behind all the PVW hype? Is it merely bc they have smartly made it so limited?
