    Re: The New Old Taylor, First Batch.

    Do we know if this batch was indeed sour mash? I do not see how it could have been, since they were starting up and ran only one batch. I would not think I or they would use backset from a regular yello corn bourbon bourbon run. Maybe they did it right after doing a batch of the rain vodka, which is white corn and used some of it for backset.

    I thought they let the mash sit extra long in a holding tank before distillation to sour "Old fashioned" style.

    I know they said they did for the first release of the eh taylor, but I do not know about this batch. Maybe I missed it.

    I'm pretty sure nothing was ever said about that, whether or not it was sour mash and, if so, where they got the slop. BT certainly has plenty and since spent mash is, by definition, spent, there would be nothing wrong with using yellow corn slop for backset.

    They could use yellow corn slop, but it would effect the taste. My money says either sweet mash or they brought it down with acid.

    I agree. What kind of acid would you use?

    I tasted this last December and I really liked it. With the low distillation and barrel proof, my bet is it will be ready to bottle in four years.

    I was looking forward to trying this initially, but the way BT has gone with a lot of their products (not all since I can still get W12 for < $24 but holding my breath on that one) I expect they will price it at $70 and I will have to get on some damn waiting or call list to get it..and I ain't doing that anymore. Too many good whiskeys to go through that bullshit again..
