    That's a lot of barrels.
    Sounds like a long time before BT can change the taste of OT, that is if they want to.

    Re: Buffalo Trace Old Taylor Welcoming...anyone else attending?

    There are only about 20 to 22 cases of bourbon per barrel ... depending on proof and age ... that represents about 34,000 to 37,400 cases ... I gotta believe that Old Taylor sells that much in a year ... maybe not ...

    So ... not that long before BT can effect the OT product. Heck, they COULD do so immediately by mingling these barrels with other stuff ...

    Since OT under Beam had a 6 yr age statement, one can assume that all the barrels were that age or less. My guess (and it's just that) is that OT didn't sell that many barrrels in a year.

    Re: Buffalo Trace Old Taylor Welcoming...anyone else attending?

    Mark told me that one of the reasons that Buffalo trace was able to get the brand is that the sales were down to only about 13,000 cases in three states. I know he said Missouri was one of the states and I think the other two were Arkansas and Tennessee.

    I am sure Buffalo Trace will do a better job than Beam at promoting the Old Taylor brand.

    Re: Buffalo Trace Old Taylor Welcoming...anyone else attending?

    It is also available in SC, NC, ID, MS, NV, OR, UT, VA and VT. Many of these are control states and I think Beam would bottle a bunch of 1L's and 1'75L's and make a deal with these states in order to move stock out the door. In the past I think I have even seen it in Pa. too!

    Actually have a few bottles her in northern Illinois too. The one I have looks like it's from either 2000 or 2002. Joe

    Re: Buffalo Trace Old Taylor Welcoming...anyone else attending?

    Old Taylor is still sold nationwide, but the majority of the sales takes place in those three states. At least that was what Mark Brown told me. The lack of sales elsewhere madethe sale possible.
