    I've just noted that I can have a pour of one Bourbon, move to another pour I know I like and not be able to get into it, and I've always put that up to the previous drink.

    Just a thought.
    I see what you're saying, and there may be a little to that. BUT I had had a pour of Baker's earlier in the day (when I opened it) with nothing before or after, and I still was underwhelmed. The nose had a strong rubbing alcohol quality that just wouldn't die. Only after I threw a cube into it that it became a little more tame.

    I've also noticed that sometimes a pour will seem to change quite a bit as I'm drinking it, as if different layers of flavor make themselves known. Saz 18 seemed to be one of the most changeable for me - never ever bad, just different from sip to sip.
    Oh no! You have walked into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue!

    I personally see PWV20 in many places. Each store usually won't have more than about 2-5 bottles, but it is pretty easy to find.

    Just like everything else, it is all about supply and demand. While I LOVE PWV20, it is an expensive bourbon. This price will thus keep the demand down. Most of us probably have one bottle, but there probably are not many who can afford to bunker this one particular bourbon. (although I would like too! )

    I'm sure that if Julian has trouble distributing this year's bottling, the price will indeed come down a little bit, but I wouldn't bet on it.
