    Re: Pappy Van Winkle 15 yr old

    I would get a bottle of ORVW 10/107 along with either of the15/107 bottlings. The 10/107 isn't much more than the 10/90 and it would be fun to compare it to the OGD 114!

    Re: Pappy Van Winkle 15 yr old

    Well, not sure I understand the choice, which is probably why I've never made one. When this thread/poll began, the Pappy 15 didn't exist -- instead it was ORVW 15/107. A Pappy 10yo has NEVER existed.
    So, if we're comparing the ORVW 15/107 with either the ORVW 10/107 or 10/90, give me the 15yo. If it's today's Pappy 15 vs. ORVW 10/107, give me the younger version. If we're talking the Pappy 15 and ORVW 10/90 -- well, then I'll split the difference (in age AND price) and buy the 12yo Lot B.

    Re: Pappy Van Winkle 15 yr old

    I managed to finally get a bottle of the highly regarded ORVW15. I have had plenty of the PVW15 (still do) and was excited to compare the two head to head. I did so last evening and all I can say is there is virtually no difference. I think I remember Julian stating in an earlier thread that the contents are the same but packaged in different bottles. This sure seems to be the case...

    Others swear there is a big difference but I could barely tell the two apart. To me there was a very, VERY, minor difference between the two but nothing to lose sleep over. PVW 15 is okay by me.

    Re: Pappy Van Winkle 15 yr old

    I have only had 2 pours of Pappy 15.One in Sweden that I thought tasted a bit older and woodier than ORVW. The other was in Bardstown on Bettye Jos party and that tasted as usual. I donít like the 90 proof version of the 10 years at all but if itís the 107 I would say itís almost a tie and the mode decides with I prefer at the moment. However if I have to shoes one it would be the 10-year.

    I think I'm confused too, or perhaps infused with too much bourbon.... I can't vote either as finding a 15-YR Pappy has proved elusive. But one can't go wrong with anything bottled with a Van Winkle name. I've had their straight rye, the 10 & 15-year ORVW, and the Lot B. All have proven to be superb! I'm soon to acquire the PVW 20 in the next few weeks.

    This may be our first poll with a trick question.

    15, No contest. Much, Much better than the 10.

    I hope it was vs. ORVW 10 107, if there's a Pappy 10, it's news to me.

    There's a Pappy Ten only in Pappy Heaven, where there's a Pappy Everything.
