    buying advice for Pappy 23 yr old

    I have located 17 bottles of Pappy 23 yr old, priced at $180. Any advice on examining these bottles?

    I don't know, but at that price, buy them all.

    See if the glass on any of them is tinted green. iirc if the glass is green then it's from the first release and there is rye recipe bourbon inside rather than the typical wheat.

    In addition to 'green tinted glass' bottles, look for any with Lawrenceburg on the label vs Frankfort.

    Get any and all with green glass and/or Lawrenceburg labels.

    I'll take one also. Pondering where such a stash could possibly be?

    Thank you everyone for the guidance.

    These all say Frankfurt on the label, clear glass.

    The fun is in the hunt, right?
