    T-P,

    You have just committed the gruesome sin of assuming that the consumer has any rights at all.

    You couldn´t be more wrong. On this forum (according to some), the customer is always wrong.

    In the future, make sure that your wishes and desires concide with those of the businessman and all shall be well.

    P.S good luck with hunting your S-W whiskies. It should be worth the while.
    Delighted to see you if you can find me!

    So I'm wrong?? You don't think Julian is good at picking whiskey?? Which brands do you prefer??? I guess I'm just a mark for all things Pappy. I haven't had a bad bottle of ORVW 10/90 & 10/107 and VWSR 12 since it stopped being S-W bourbon. I just assumed JVW was picking great bourbon for it. Now if you don't like it anymore, I can understand why you would demand JVW to tell you which bottle's would be no good for your purchase.

    Clearly, he was not saying anything about Julian Van Winkle or his skills at picking good whiskey.
    Clearly he was poking fun at the "business" side of the whiskey trade.
    Clearly you did not see the humor in his posting.
    I am currently working my way through a bottle of VWSR 12 and it's fantastic!
    I know it's not SW whiskey (Bernheim?), and that's fine with me.
    Nobody was demanding anything.

    Well, I'm not going to purchase 'those' six bottles unless and until I know if they are in fact SW.
    Again, as I said earlier, my question was about SW whiskey as that is my FOCUS regarding collecting/bunkering right now.

    Going without PVW15 for the rest of my life? Are you mad... ?

    Joe,

    As T-P already has pointed out, I wasn´t out for Julian´s blood. I have several of his bottlngs at home. In fact, one of the two best whiskies I´ve ever had comes from his stable.

    I just felt that no one should be made to feel bad about desiring a whiskey from a specific distillery. The fact that Julian has released bottle after bottle of excellent to world-class bourbon from this distillery, has inevitably created a suss about products from S-W.

    The fact that S-W whiskey is growing scarcer by the minute is of course no one´s fault (except maybe Diageo´s).
    Delighted to see you if you can find me!

    I have been a member here for 2 years and I cant recall reading that anyone have said that Julian van Winkle picks bad barrels for his whiskey. At least for me this issue is about the labelling and the desire some members have to now what they drink. And good bourbon don’t necessary mean the same taste to me. For instance I do love both the SW and the Bernheim 10 years 107 but I don’t think they taste the same. I will be glad to bay the new 15 years pappy with BT bourbon if it is good but I want to now it is BT bourbon.

    Re: SW Bourbon List?

    Tango-Papa,

    The likelihood is very high that any Pappy you find is SW. If some non-SW whiskey was included in a recent Pappy 15 bottling, it most likely was mixed with SW which could be a very good thing. Some of the SW that's still in barrels is a bit overaged and some younger (though still >15) BT wheater might be just what it needs. All things considered, and knowing Julian's standards, if you want SW whiskey and have the chance and resources to buy some Pappy 15, you really should. There are few certainties in this world, but were I in your shoes, I would like my odds.
