    Beam suntory don’t own PVW. Sazerac/buffalo trace does the distilling/bottling

    You should meet my buddy, I'm not that lucky Paul. Think Jon Lovitz on meth. I love him though.

    Out to dinner the other night and I enjoyed an Eagle Rare over ice. Very nice. Never had it before. Next day stopped by my local shop and picked up a couple bottles.
    They had PVW 20 for $100. Skipped that as I have half a bottle left at home. Good stuff.

    That's PVW $100 for a small dram right?

    Back in the day when a dime bag cost a dime, I used to buy two bottles of PVW20 for $100. That's insane. I'm talking ten years ago.

    That's like asking which kid you love more, lol... I really enjoy this, but go back time and again to Ardbeg (Ueigaedail
    Its like asking which kid you love more, lol...my all-time favorite peated whisky is Laphroaig 18, sadly not available any more (I still check small shops here and in the UK from time to time to see if anyone has a bottle in the back). I really like Ardbeg Uigeadail, which is a 51/49 favorite to the Corryvrekan. I recommend Lagavulin 16 to anyone interested in buying a peated Islay, since it is probably the smoothest one of the bunch. The Octomore is more a punch in the mouth, in a good way, so I'd think you would work up to it after the Ardbeg seems normal. Octomore's prices have been accelerating pretty quickly though, indicating it has some strong buzz pushing the numbers.

    My wife just gave me a few new bottles for my birthday; a Weller 12yo, another Weller limited edition from a private collection, and a Kavalan sherry cask Solist at cask strength. The Kavalan is amazing; deep, rich, great nose and taste, especially on the finish. It is bottled at 57.8, so you'd probably want to add a touch of water, but not so much as to dull the experience (just hold on to your chair when you drink it).

    I'd post my collection like the one above, but it could demonstrate how far this obsession has gone...including a newer Whistlepig Straight Rye 10 at 100 proof, which is pretty good, but another shock to the system neat.
