All,

Just had a nice chat with Ken Weber at Buffalo Trace Distillery. He was really happy to hear all the excitement surrounding the Stagg release. For the record, The Trace released just 2,253 bottles of Stagg, shipped in 751 3-bottle packages.

But here's some great news http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/grin.gif: there are 1,500 experimental barrels sitting at The Trace's warehouses right now. Soon, they'll start picking these barrels (in some cases just 2 or 3 at a time) for super limited 'Stagg-like' releases.

Ken says we should expect the unexpected, not just in proof and age, but also in flavor profiles. After their Antique Collection and Stagg, I can't wait.

Cheers to Buffalo Trace!

Hi Jeff,

No specific date, but I'll bet we'll see something by next year's festival. http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/grin.gif

After this years bourbon festival I was getting a little depressed about the way it seems that a lot of the best bourbons are going to only export/duty free markets... Here's to Buffalo Trace for selling some of the best stuff to the Bourbon enthusiasts in the US!

http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/laugh.gif Ha Ha Bill! BLeeeE! is a Bourbonian word that roughly translates to 'Bourbonic Glee'. It is also utilized as denoting enthusiastic agreement between Bourbonians. Other than that it is just a small bit of nonsense that I made up last year sometime. When I drink a lot strange words (such as BLeeeE!) just come out. http://www.straightbourbon.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/grin.gif

It may be weird, but we love it (mostly cause Linn & I just won't let it die. . . . .)
