Probably my favorite of the 3 Pappys. My last of a bottle from a 2007 release.

Hard to go wrong and to enjoy this with this many friends bumped up the rating. Incredibly generous by @Jason Cutrer to bring a bottle of this and the 12. Who does that?!?! Super special. I’m putting this above the 12 and the 23 we had later in the night. Atmosphere had a lot to do with it. And to the attempted photo bomber Sherry - #fail!!!!

Expected more. There rye is there, the the bog notes. Not as elegant nor complex as expected, though.

Super delish. Worth the hype. Would pay 80$ for this bourbon everyday if it was available. Smooth and flavorful

Just a bad ass bottle of bourbon. It's everything that it's supposed to be. Honey, carmel, toast and everything else you want in a bourbon. Kick back and enjoy my friend !!

Last drops of a hoarded bottle. So much long, tangerine-laced mounds and almond joy. Goodbye.
