What am I getting blamed for now??? After all, it was my research that inspired Buffalo Trace to make the Old Taylor using the recipe used by Taylor at OFC (Old Fashioned Fire under Taylor's ownership) and they even distilled it at a low proof and put it in the barrel at the lowest proof done in several decades. I am looking forward to tasting some of the whiskey. My bet is that at four years of age it will be better than many 7 or 8 years old bourbons.
This begs the question, what is the lowest distillation proof/barrel proof bourbon on the market today? On first blush I would guess WT, but I am nowhere near as educated as most on this forum.
Great job convincing the good folks at BT to do this, Mr. Veach.
