    How times change - new ORVW decanter released

    http://www.pappyco.com/products/limi...-gift-set.html

    Only problem is this one costs ~3 times as much as the original, and doesn't come with any bourbon!!

    Aaaa yes, to pretend you're drinking "Pappy" is just as good as actually drinking it.

    Not sure if you're aware of the fact that PVW is the best bourbon you can buy. :WINK:

    I imagine that these will be very popular with the crowd that pays $1000+ for a bottle of PVW23.

    The furniture maker that makes it has some really cool stuff but I just do not see spending that kind of money for some of it. I really like their bench but is is almost $400

    At that price why wouldn't you offer free shipping and there are a lot of folks with too much money on their hands.

    I say good for the VW's for really cashing in on what they have created (why should liquor stores swindlers and flippers get all the perks!) but for that price there are a hell of a lot nicer crystal decanters and glasses for your booze. Plus who drinks exclusively Pappy? It would be odd to put non-PVW in it.

    Ouch - not cheap at all, but I would love to have that reclaimed barrel sink in my bathroom in the basement. Now where's that winning lottery ticket ...

    Fill that decanter up with some barrel-proof juice, cut the price in half, and maybe we can talk... (Maybe)

    $70? worth of Glencairn glass.

    $25? worth of cigars

    $20? worth of reclaimed barrel oak that can't be used to make more PVW

    $15 worth of cloth, leather, hardware, etc.

    $3 brass logo

    That's some mighty fine profit margin, right there.
