Anyway, I went to the list, noticed how many people were no longer in town from 2010 and offered PVW20 to a regular who was at the bottom. I think we sold it for $120 or something like that and he came in the store today to thank me because he flipped it for $600!!! I mean come on, I don't flip or jack up the rices at the store because I don't think it's good business, but I just felt taken advantage of...then again, it was his bottle and he can do what he wants with it.

    On a more personal note, St. George Single Malt was just gross.
    Absolutely unreal and I would just have to ban him from my premises completely.

    Would love to be on a list of an establisment like yours.

    Staying in line with Pappy, I think this years 15 year was not good at all and a huge disappointment. Too much Vanilla and not enough balance. Also, after revisiting Stagg Jr., I've flipped and think its a disappointment, too.

    I'll agree about Stagg Jr, I hoped for something like ER10BP but it didn't measure up. This year's Pappy 15 I liked much more than I expected! Good age development, stronger flavors. I agree that balance was off/odd, but I liked the way it came out.
