    Pappy 20 barrel proof specialty bottling

    I was surfing through old threads and found one about a previous pappy 20 bottling by Julian for at BARREL STRENGTH! I tried desperately to find the thread again, but for some reason I cannot find it. The thread was closed years ago so I couldnt revive it. I can only pray this could happen again, but I doubt it.

    My question is, did anyone on this board get some and if so how did taste? How did it compare to pappy 20? Was this something to hold only for special occasions?

    I seem to recall Binny's having this bottling several years ago...?

    Wow, nice! If anyone has access to one of these I am highly interested. (doubtful I know!!)

    Anyone have tasting notes?

    If you check out that photo that Dan linked,
    You can see a 4/60 in the corner of the bottle. I'm guessing there was only 60 bottles produced.
    Sounds about right.
    Think about the SB Pappy 23 from last year. One barrel netted 97 bottles and the other only 53, IIRC. This was also after they had been cut to bottling proof!

    Wow, I'd pay $250 for a bottle of that stuff. I cant imagine the intensity could be matched by many other spirits out there.

    Re: Pappy 20 barrel proof specialty bottling

    It's funny to see how, just five years ago, $100 for a bottle was very high. At least so it seemed by the way some of the posters were balking at the price tag.

    I'm guessing a limited release, out of only 60, would net close to three hundred clams these days.

    Ok, so $300! I'd savor it for years!

    I would never purchase a bourbon for $300.
