Hi I'm brand new here, and I've been casually trying to be a whiskey guy for a couple of years. My favorite (affordable) bourbon is Wild Turkey 101, but I had a question about something else. My dad got some "Pappy Van Winkle’s Family Reserve 20 Year-Old" for a present recently. He doesn't like bourbon (weird premium tequila fetish) so he just gave me the bottle, and I haven't tried it yet. I've never heard of the brand, or in fact of any bourbon that's aged 20 years.
So finally the question: Is this stuff respected in the forums? My whiskey knowledge is very financially sensitive, particularly with bourbons, and I wanted to get opinions on this stuff.
