    I like the newer bottle because it is more narrow than the original. I can fit more bottles into my liquor cabinet this way!

    Exclamation I think we have a consensus here...

    OK Tim, I agree that allowing more bottles in the cabinet is important! So, perhaps we can agree that the old ORVW squat bottle is a purer form of bourbon bottle and more aesthetically pleasing, while allowing that the new PVW bottle is more efficient in it's use of available space. I suppose a workable compromise might be to soak off the label of one's final bottle of ORVW and reattach it to a new bottle of PVW 15...? Tom V

    I dunno guys, I like the new bottle for many of the same reasons but mostly because it gives me something to look forward to: smoking a big old stogie and drinking bourbon when my hair turns grey(er).

    I don't drink to excess. But I'll drink to most anything else.

    Agreed, that picture of Pappy is inspiring!

    Thumbs up

    The newer bottle/label is destined for legendary status as well. The old edition will always be more desirable simply because it is out of production. IMHO, both are classics - but, in different ways. Once again, I tip my hat to JVW for the tradition of class and excellence on both sides of the glass in each bottle whether present or former.

    You're never too late, either to enjoy Pappy or to write about it here. But after you try it, you might ask yourself why you waited so long.

    Wifey said... those bottles are for Christmas... So, have to wait until then to open one. I have tried the 10y 107P before. But.. hey.. those bottles are hard to get here in N Cal. 1st chance I have ever seen and I jumped on it. I got the last 2 bottles from BevMo.com. in the state of CA. Cost me ~$40 per bottle after tax.

    Need to work harder on getting some more 10y 107. I really liked that last year around this time.
