    Re: ORVW Price Increase

    Ok, so it's the same juice just aged to different years, 7, 10 and 12 years. I'll have to get the Antique and give it a run...if I can't notice a diff, then cheaper is better! i still think my Lot B is better than my ORVW...I'll have to do a side by side blind taste test....

    Re: ORVW Price Increase

    My understanding is that they are the same mash bill and distillate, but barrel aging varies, and different people are picking the barrels used for the Weller and VW. They share common roots, but they aren't necessarily the same finished bourbon.

    Re: ORVW Price Increase

    I drink Weller Antique daily. At the NC ABC, the retail price is $16.95, though every other month, it's on sale for $13.95...no lie. I love the Weller, but I prefer the ORVW 10. At $21, it was affordable for an everyday pour...at $32...it's now an occasional pour.

    Re: ORVW Price Increase

    I've only opened one bottle of ORVW10/107, and this bottle is better than all of the bottles (about 3) of Weller 7/107 that I've had (though the Weller 107's were all still very good). I got all my bottles of ORVW 10/107 for $23-26, and the Weller 107's were $15-19. If I could find more of the ORVW 10/107, I'd gladly buy it for that much again.

    I also thought the ORVW 10/107 was better than the Lot B, but I've only had one bottle of each. The one bottle of Pappy 15 that I've opened beats them all, of course it should for the price.

    I've also liked all the Weller 107 more than the one bottle of ORVW 10/90 that I've opened.

    Pappy 15, ORVW 10/107, and Weller Antique 107 just might be my three favorite bourbons, but there are many I've yet to try (I've only been at it now, with bourbon, since April 2007).

    BC, those are some great prices for Antique!!!! I wish I could find prices like that around Connecticut.
