    Tom,

    Can you add info to this?
    Any way to tell when and which bottlings?
    I'm just about to make a purchase of six bottles of Pappa 15 and will hold off now - at least until I can be sure that what I will be purchasing is in fact SW whisky.

    Re: SW Bourbon List?

    Really not much to add to this. When Julian was in town for a tasting at a local store we talking about the Pappy 15 and how much longer it would be produced. He said that they had released a small amount of Pappy 15 recently with BT product. When I asked if there was any way to identify them he said no.

    As someone else previously said in the thread, Julian does not put out bad bourbon, so I really wouldn't worry too much. If you are planning on buying several bottles, buy one and try it. It would be a pretty good assumption that all bottles sitting on a shelf should be the same, so if you like it buy some more.

    Tom

    Thanks - my primary 'bourbon' focus right now is all things SW, so unless I know these 15's are, in fact SW, I won't be purchasing them.

    Maybe Julian will see this post and advise when the Non-15's were released.

    You know he's in the business of SELLING Pappy 15's. If he thinks the bourbon is good enough to carry HIS name, then why would he help you to not buy his product. IMHO, I don't think Julian will be much help to you. I'm also betting that the non-S/W Pappy 15's are just as good as the other ones. Julian is gifted at picking out GREAT whiskey. Maybe you should trust him. Most SB.com members do.

    Re: SW Bourbon List?

    Just picked up these dusty shelf bottles last week...Two Cabin Still bottles, both tax-stamped, no barcode, from Louisville. I assume these are SW whiskey? I sampled one of them, and it's pretty tasty...the flavor doesn't linger around very long, but definitely better than today's "bottom shelf" brands.

    Re: SW Bourbon List?

    Before last night I had 1 open PVW15 and 2 sealed ones, now I just have 2 sealed. They were all purchased while I was under the impression that all PVW15 was 100% SW and the quantity I purchased was heavily influenced by this fact. Since then I’ve learned that they may not be SW and was a bit disappointed; I am a pessimist so I am just going to assume that all of the ones I have are not the SW ones since there is no way to know for sure really. Having said that the one that the one I finished last night tasted just as good as any other PVW15 I’ve had in the past and the disappointment I mentioned above faded shortly after it began once I began thinking about the bottles as 2 really good bottles for later rather than 2 possible SW bottles for later. I can see trying to bunker SW stuff but for this brand it seems pointless seeing as how all the bottles and their contents are pretty much identical anyway.

    What a pretty sight, indeed, Bettye Jo! Just look at the color in those faux tax stamped Cabin Stills!

    I looked at the bottom of the bottles, and all it says is "Liquor Bottle", and then there's a circle with the number 81 in it...is that the date, maybe 1981??
