Literally my favorite whiskey ever, too bad it's priced for collection and not for drinking

Laura,
This is my all time favorite. I have now finally tried the Pappy 20 but honestly prefer this one to that.

Mike,
Its 20 year old sibling still remains, at least in this reviewers opinion, “king of the Pappys”. That said, I actually prefer this to the 24 which I find to be a bit too mature “bordering on over aged even” for my taste. If you can’t get the 20 or the 15 this certainly is more than adequate. Very easy drinking....almost to the point of dangerously easy. Incredibly smooth and undeniably Pappy.

Christina,
I think the allure is in the name. It was an okay bourbon. I didn't find the taste to be special or notable. There are far better buys for the price.

My least favorite Pappy (outside of the Rye). Doesn't quite leave the lasting impression on the tongue as the others. It is held to a high standard: this is still an excellent bourbon
