please tell me that's your home bar.
Be a lot cooler if it was. Spoonbar in Healdsburg, ca. Heading to RR Brew Co tomorrow..living in SF has its privileges.
ha. well, we will be in Healdsburg in February. might need to check this place out.
are you staying at the H2 Hotel? it was sold out for when we'll be there.
I am. I like it. I'm a sucker for boutique modern, though. Not really a b&b guy.
did u go to bear repub?
pvw is the $#@!, best line of bourbon money can buy
if you are looking for a great meal I recommend Madrona Manor. also Willi's Seafood and Raw Bar is solid.
gonna try and hit up Bear Republic this time around for a pint or two. lots of great eating and drinking out there.
I got a bottle of this for Christmas:
I understand it isn't the 15/20/23 yr Pappy with the cigar-smoking gent on the label, but is this still considered "Pappy Van Winkle"? Just curious.
I haven't tried it yet, but I'm looking forward to it.
I know a store that has a few bottles of the 15 and a 20 year in Houston
i have yet to enjoy the lore of pappy....but if i were to get my hands on some should i go for the 15 or 20?
The 23 is $250/bttl. I think the 20 is $100+
the 23 is $65 a shot at Branchwater Tavern
The 20 used to be closer to 80 or 90, but I haven't seen a bottle on the shelf in quite awhile, so it is hard to say.
20 was 160 when I bought it earlier this week.
Rye was 90.
Thanks for mentioning Spoonbar, workinghorn. Probably wouldn't have known about it without this thread. That bar kicks ass. Really cool atmosphere and great, knowledgeable, friendly bartenders.
Traffic had the Pappy 20 year, but forgot to take a pic.
Had some o' this. Aged in d'Yquem casks, had a kind of buttery honey flavor. Delicious.
Then I had some o' that. Smoooooth.
The verdict? $#@!ing amazing. Can't believe I didn't try this stuff sooner. So smooth that it scares me. Still get a pleasant warming in the esophagus/stomach, but nothing but smooth and delicious while in the mouth. I'm a believer.
