Just checked the cams at BT and they are bottling VW Lot B in the main room. Won't be in time for Derby, but at least the dry spell might be over.

also, there are a few barrels in the regauge room that have this marking:

Lot # 91 D 03
OLD FITZGERALD
Distillery O?? 114
DSP-KY-113 RC 53 G
Bourbon Whiskey
4 3 91

wonder what they are?

I suspect those are going to be bottled as Pappy 15.
Maybe I'll run over there and ask.

I read DSP KY 113, which I believe is BT juice.

Does 91 D 03 mean April 3, 1991?

I believe so...

And I think 114 is the barrel entry proof.

Why would a BT barrel from 1991 have "Old Fitzgerald" stamped on it?
Is DSP-113 the BT/AA Distillery?

An Old Fitzgerald from a 1991 barrel should have DSP-16 on it.

(Like below)

Well if they were contract distilling for S-W during that time...and anything is possible...maybe one of their bottlings tended to have a bit of BT produced wheat in it. Schenley (later UDV) did own both distilleries at one time (1933-1983). That's a pretty long time for bottlings to develop a style that may need juice from multiple stills.

The "contract distilling" answer was my original reaction to the 1991 distillation date and clear reading of DSP 113. It has beed discussed many times here that there was some of this contract distilling going on......particularly during the period when numerous distilleries were closing, opening, being sold, etc.
