And the rye is also really good, but even harder to find than the 20 year.
I've had all ages offered in the Pappy Van Winkles... and I'm joking a bit when I call it corn whiskey, but corn is definitely there. It's good bourbon, but still bourbon, which has a fairly narrow range of flavors, in my opinion. My brother's bar in Chicago is well-known for bourbons, and I've had a decent range of them. Scotch has a much wider variety in flavors overall, in my opinion, and I prefer the absence of the corn sweetness. I'm not saying I don't like bourbon, just that I prefer whisky over whiskey.
