    V17= PVW 17? Nice

    Re: BOTM 11/13: Pappy 15

    I thought the current Pappy 15 situation could be summed up with a haiku:

    Pappy Van Winkle
    Billionaires, eat your hearts out
    For sip or for taste

    The last bottle of Pappy 15 I had was from 2011 when I compared it to a 2009 bottling - I have not chased it since. As good as the 2009 and prior was, I never drank Pappy for a smack in the mouth; wheaters aren't for that. Accordingly, I always leaned towards the smoothness of the 20 as a nice after dinner drink.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't there a large bottling done it 2009 that was then released the the spring and fall until the fall of 2011 when the bottled in 2011 stock was released? The '09 bottle you purchased in 2011 was likely part of the spring 2011 release and not sitting on the shelf for 2 years.

    As for PVW15, I have yet to try any bottled after 2009, but the ones I've had have been spectacular and can justify at least some of the hype around the brand. Sad that I'm down to my last 09 bottle...

    This is consistent with the bottles of 15 I purchased from the spring 2011 release...all bottled in 2009.
