    Re: Pappy 20 barrel proof specialty bottling

    Pappy 20 is my fav bourbon. A barrelproof? I wouldnt WANT to spend $300, but if the opp arose I think I would regret not pulling the trigger.

    Vange, I don't blame you but I couldn't do it. Maybe as an investment but I haven't purchased a bourbon yet for investment purposes.

    I should clarify by stating that I won't purchase a bourbon for $300 in the next ten years.

    You could always pawn off things you don't need to get the funds... extra kidney, pinky toe... the wife's jewlery that she has forgotten about

    I would have to think long and hard about a VW cask strength... $300... I'd do it for a 23 yr

    I'd call Cliff but he's probably still recuperating from the highly successful Pappy23 campaign of 07. I'm still buying the new gold foil P23 so I don't go through too many bottles of the SB.com cache. There kind of special now that VW has eliminated the gold wax seal for the general public. It was still great being part of SB purchase. I'm in for the barrel strength P20 if there is room on the list. This is how it all started last time if I remember.

    I am also very interested, although anything like $300/bottle may be out of my price range in the coming year, as I begin my clerkship in May (along with its roughly 60% cut in salary).

    Re: Pappy 20 barrel proof specialty bottling

    What did it run a bottle last time? I think they did the Pappy 23 yr.. If we did a 20 yr barrel strength, I do not think it would be $300.

    Still not cheep, but worth putting some down for the long future... by my 08/09 purchases for sure....
