    2 bottles of PVW 15 or 1 bottle of AH Hirsch 16?

    Is the AH Hirsch 16 worth the price of 2 PVW 15's? Would like to try it if it is THAT good but if I am paying for the scarcity than I will stick with the PVW15. Any thoughts from those that have tried both???

    Re: 2 bottles of PVW 15 or 1 bottle of AH Hirsch 16?

    I'm one of a tiny minority here who considers the latest, so-called "gold foil" bottling of Hirsch 16 y/o to be only average bourbon -- different, but not in a particularly good way. I wouldn't trade even one bottle of PVW 15 for it.

    However, if you find the gold wax bottling, which in my opinion is far superior to the later bottling, then such a swap might be worthwhile -- certainly on a one-time basis.

    I would go for 2 bottles of Pappy 15 anytime. I have a bottle of Hirsch and while I do like it, It isn't worth 2 bottles of PVW 15 in my opinion!

    I'd take the two bottles of PVW 15 any day of the week.

    Hands down, walking away, no questions asked, without a doubt, and nary a second thought... PVW 15. My personal favoritest Bourbon!

    Yeah I got a bottle of AH 16 about a month ago, Very, Very nice bourbon! But 2 bottles of one of my top 5's. No way bring on the Pappy 15, some of the best bourbon you can find....

    Step 1; Go to the ATM, get $40
    Step 2; Go to Bellagio in Las Vegas
    Step 3; Go to the Fontana Bar
    Step 4; Order a Blue Wax AH Hirsch
    Step 5; Order a ORVW 15/107
    Step 6; Drink them both, Hirsch wins hands down.

    Under this scenario the 1 Hirsch beats 2 ORVW's. It is that good. Up until the point where I had done this experiment, I would have chosen the Pappy's.

    I agree that Gold foil doesn't equal Gold wax, which doesn't equal Blue wax, but it is all good, very very good. I think I'll go pour a Hirsch right now.

    Probably your best bet is to buy two Pappy's and one Hirsch.
