Does a barrel ever go completely bad, age related or otherwise?
Yes they do, barrels can be ruined by green wood sap or an iron scrap (that's why barrels are not put together with nails) and when they do they are sold to a rectifier to be redistilled into industrial alcohol.
But you guys aren't about to let that happen, are you Kyle.
Certainly not. But we also dont have these old barrels. Just happen to know who does.
Kyle on this Board we call that a cliffhanger.
Kyle, that's a welled played line.
Thanks for the contributions. And for good product that you folks put out.
Seems this rumored creature is starting to show in the wild, ran across this in another corner of the internets.
Anyone seen or tasted it yet?
Batch 2 even! New to me. Anyone know msrp?
thanks for sharing.
Something for me to ask Trey Zoeller about during a bourbon dinner I am going to in a couple of weeks that he is supposed to be attending. Well, something else. I already have several questions in mind! If we even get to ask questions.
Although I am not really expecting any real details unfortunately. Perhaps I will be wrong about that.
As for MSRP I don't have a clue but anything much below the bourbon which was around $135 would be something of a surprise even with the relatively low proof. Unfortunately more than that would not be a big surprise. At least 100 proof like the older Rittenhouse Rye line would have been nice to see.
