    Re: Old Rip 15yo v. Pappy\'s Reserve 15yo

    Perhaps I should interject my standing offer of a 2002 GTS for a 1987 EWSB.

    Is that because EWSB 1987 is so rare or so good?

    That was supposed to be a quote from Bobbyc followed by a zombie-like response(as a way to score myself another bottle of '02 Stagg).

    However the answer to your question seems to be: both. Although, reading a tasting of the first several EWSB with Parker Beam, the quality seems to have improved after the '89 vintage, but it's still all good stuff. But it is beyond "rare" and at this point is "unobtainium".

    Saw an old dusty bottle of EWSB 1986 today but did not buy it. Ran out of money buying some old bottles of Lawrenceburg VWSR. Maybe next week - if you guys think it would be worth some extra driving miles to retrieve it(?) .
