With TPEwinedrinker a few days ago:
Knob Creek rye (from menu)
Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 year Lot B (from menu)
Old Rip Van Winkle 10 year (his bottle)
Old Fitzgerald 6 year Bottled in Bond, Stitzel-Weller distillery (my bottle, barreled in 1950 and bottled in 1956)

So do you think the Van Winkle's are much better than other bourbons?

I had heard that years ago, Buffalo Trace had a hard time selling the Van Winkles but then people discovered them and they shot up in popularity and now they are a prized possession.
