Questions for the Pappy fans...is it worth all the trouble or should I just quit trying with the raffles?
In my opinion it is NOT worth the trouble. In Texas the likelihood of finding any PVW or BTAC at msrp is nearly impossible. They can be found at stores where they have been marked up significantly by the owners. I don't hold it against them. I'm just not going to be the customer who buys it at that price.
Question: in Michigan are you playing a raffle to buy at msrp? Or just to buy at whatever price the liquor store says?
If you like wheated bourbons, then there are many other options that are (1) readily available and (2) reasonably priced. Save your money and try it in a bar someday...
I'm sure it's marked up some, but the raffles are as close as I'm going to get to buying it at msrp. The Mega Bev chain of stores hosts them every year in my area.
Yeah I'm just on like a 8 year waiting list for some PVW. I'm sure I'll never get to try it outside of at a bar when I'm feeling frisky and just got paid.
