Hey all!


I'm looking for a particular bottle of Old Rip Van Winkle (Pappy). It's the 23 Year Old that comes in the crystal decanter. I have a bottle of this but celebrated a bit too much the night I got out of the Army and poured nearly the whole bottle to perfect strangers (little did they know they were getting pours of what would be $100+ per pour at a restaurant). This bottling is particularly special to me because it was put into barrel within 2 weeks of when I was born in April 1986.


Does anyone have a spare set laying around, or know where one might be available? It was released in 2009 and limited to just 1200 sets, so I know there aren't a ton around, but I gave myself a pour of the few ounces remaining on my birthday on Tuesday and set out on a quest to find me another set.
