    New Product Wish List

    Hiya Greg, Bettye Jo and all:

    Are there any 'new' bourbons being introduced at the fest? Last year, Distillers Masterpiece 20y and Old Whiskey River made their debut.

    My new product wish list would be:

    - A single barrel Four Roses for US market
    - Anything from the pot stills at Labrot & Graham
    - A 15y Elijah Craig
    - A 107 proof Elmer T. Lee
    - A 101 proof or single barrel Makers
    - A 90-95 proof Basil Hayden
    - An affordable Old Potrero rye

    What would you fellow bourbonians add to your wish list?

    Cheers,
    Omar

    Re: New Product Wish List

    Hey Omar that's not off topic at all! So let's put this puppy in General Bourbon Topics. As for my wish I do agree that a single barrel pot-stilled bourbon from L&G is at the top of my list.

    Re: New Product

    Ken Weber tells me they'll have a new barrel proof bourbon available later this year and available for our tasting Sept. 19 (Linn, please wear TWO pairs of pants!).

    George T. Stagg Kentucky Bourbon, approx. 130 proof, 15 years old, uncut, unfiltered

    George T. Stagg owned the distillery now known as Buffalo Trace in the 1880s and it carried his name.

    Greg if this is the BT#2 mashbill straight out of the barrel at fifteen years of age I would advise everyone to wear at least five pairs of pants.

    Re: New Product

    Greg, all:

    A new 130 proof whiskey in the works at BT? I thought bourbon couldn't be bottled over the 125-126 mark...and Bookers was pushing the limit.

    Can you clarify this? Also, I was under the impression that bourbon needs to be a minimum 80 proof/40% Alc. But in Australia and New Zealand, there are a couple of 'Kentucky Straight' bourbons bottled at 37% Alc. And a bourbon 'drink', named Silver Dollar, that's a mere 22% ABV. At least they call that one a 'drink', not a KSB.

    So, what's the story?

    Omar

    Re: New Product

    I know that in Europe "proof" is a different abv than here in the states. I'm pretty sure I have seen 70 proof bottles that concerned me, but after reading the label they were 40%abv. (I'm not positive on the exact numbers).

    Re: New Product

    Under U.S. law, any straight spirit (whiskey, rum, gin, vodka, etc.) sold at less than 80 proof (40% abv) must be labeled as "diluted." There is no high end legal limit on bottling, but there is a practical limit based on the proof of barrel entry, which is limited by law. In other words, the whiskey has to go into the barrel at no more than 120 proof. (I think that's right. I'm sure someone will correct me if it's not.)
