Gentleman (and ladies for the few of you out there), I am getting desperate and looking for some help...I have been trying to find a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle for about a year now and have had no luck whatsoever. For those of you that enjoy bourbon you may know just how difficult it is to find. I thought I had a line on a bottle around the holidays but it fell through and was wondering if ANYONE could help me get my hands on a bottle. I'll take the 15 year, 20 year, or 23 year...but the 23 year is the holy grail so that would be my preference. Any help would be appreciated...
Unfortunately, I don't think you will be able to capture a bottle this year. I have scored one in the past by scavenging like you are describing, but this year's release was much smaller than most and is essentially gone. As best as I can tell, most years, only 3000 bottles are released in the US. This year about half that number came out because a lot had been stored on the east coast and were lost to hurricane sandy. I have been told the entire state of Ohio only got 8 bottles. Usually there is resale market where you can buy at a slight premium, but this year you might have to pay 8 to 10 times face value on what is already a $300 bottle. You best bet is to get as many lines in the water as you can before next year's release, usually in mid fall. Best of luck.
I have a bottle of the 23 year old Pappy and must say I enjoy it immensely. I have two chances to possibly get my hands on something for you. I have a friend who has multiple bottles of 10 and 15 year old. I will see if he is willing to part with one of them. I also have a customer from Louisville who is a lover of good bourbons and he is the one who turned me on to Pappy. He knows the ins and outs of the brand and where to find it. I will also check with him for you.
mac24, I will take whatever I can get...I've been trying for a very long time to get my hands on a bottle so if you can land the 10 or 15 year I will take it for sure and be willing to pay a premium. I'd like to have the 23 year just because that is so hard to get, but if I ever did get a bottle Id probably never drink it knowing I may never be able to get it again! Send me a PM if your friend is willing to part with any of his collection so we can arrange payment...thanks for at least trying that is kick ass of you!
