    Will "Old Taylor" also be made from the Taylor mashbill, eventually, or will its label grace one of two popular BT mashbills instead?

    I expect this to be damn fine juice when it hits the shelves, even though it will differ markedly from Taylor's own juice, which came from pot stills. I imagine that BT is using a column still for first distillation, as is standard practice today.

    At least for these initial batches, if they are using their experimental still, it will be pot distilled.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    Thanks Ben, I was just going to say/ask something about that. I thought that I remembered from my tour last year, that their micro-distillery was a pot still. Joe

    Their micro-distillery is what I call a hybrid, as it has characteristics of both and can, I believe, run in either plain pot still mode, full-on continuous distillation mode, or some of each, which is what a lot of micro-distillers do. That's where they operate it as a charge still (as opposed to continuous) but they use some or all of the rectification column.

    For those who have not been on the tour, this is BT's micro still:

    My name is Joel Goodson. I deal in human fulfillment.
    I grossed over eight thousand dollars in one night. Time of your life, huh kid?

    Are you sure that isn't a space ship?

    Are the Beam OT's now dusty?

    The Beam OT's are the kind of dust you sweep under the rug.

    Re: The New Old Taylor, First Batch.

    By the way, the micro-distillery at Buffalo Trace has a new, official name:

    The Col. E.H. Taylor, Jr. Old Fashioned Copper Distillery

    In honor of Col. Taylor, I have changed my SB.com signature to reflect my own commission from Gov. Patton in the 206th year of the Commonwealth (1997).

    Their still is similar to ours... both were made by vendome. They are in fact "hybrid" stills because there are plates in the column, but because of the set up you can't run it like a continuous still and pull off your finished spirits. Unless theirs is significantly different than ours, you always have to run the batch through the whole column then through the condensing unit. Of course, you have the choice to either turn the plates on or off (or any combination).
