    I voted for all of them. Hirsch is really great, but so is Pappy. I think Pappy is a better pour in terms of objective qualities, but the Hirsch is something I personally enjoy a bit more, if that makes any sense.

    I cant really say which I like better, as I have only opened my Hirsch, and I must say it wasn't to my liking, I have had better bourbons. I will try again this week, and if my best friend from Sydney comes to viit, I will open my Pappy 20 and do a shootout

    A close race, but Pappy 20 wins for me.

    I know I'm not answering the question but I really love the Hirsch. I plan on getting the Pappy (15 and 20)in the next month and then will look to the Maple Hill. There's too many stinkin choices out there....

    I prefer the BMH 16 over the BMH 21

    My opinion may be tainted because my old time favorite was Michter's. In 2001 I bought the Lawrenceburg label 20 year Pappy and thought it was excellent. Then I opened one of my blue wax Hirsches and in a side by side comparison thought the 16 year Hirsch was the hands down winner. My taste notes would be worthy of a butcher so don't ask for that. All I can tell you is Hirsch seemed to have more flavors, bigger body, and nicer finish. It is still my favorite.

    Phil,

    I'd like to know what you think doing a side by side of Pappy 15 and the blue wax Hirsch. I think I've tried the blue wax Hirsch courtesy of TN Bourbon, but the Pappy 15 is a household favorite here
