I respectfully disagree. I've had the 20 and 23 year Pappy and I've had the 12 year Family Reserve and their Rye. The one thing they had in common was they all made me grin like an idiot, and very few bourbons are capable of that. The only ones who have come close to that same feeling of "Eureka!" are the 4 Roses Small Batch Limited 2012,
Now the guy is offering me either an Eagle Rare 17 + Stagg or Eagle Rare 17 + Jefferson's Presidential Select 18 for my Pappy 15.
