    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? Spring 2010

    I picked up a bottle of KC at Binny's...I haven't had it in a year or so but I figured it's worth the $21.99 that they have it on sale for this week.

    Damn...I'd love to get 24 PVW15's...that's a GREAT haul!

    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? Spring 2010

    My brother raised a few good questions this evening.

    Does Van Winkle (or anyone else for that matter) ever buy whiskey that is aged prior to them obtaining them and re-aging? Are any aged outside of the Van Winkle warehouses and bottled directly?

    Do they ever mingle distillate from multiple distilleries before aging?

    And finally, what exactly is in any certain bottle of Van Winkle? Are there whiskies older than 10, 15, or 20, in bottles of Van Winkle 10yr, 15yr, and 20yr?

    Yes. One example I can think of is Vintage Rye 21 year- I remember reading somewhere that it was sold because it was deemed "too old" to become what it was intended to become, and then it was aged for additional years before being bottled. the seller apparently expressed regret, and said that they would not have sold it if they knew it was going to undergo additional aging.

    Do they ever mingle distillate from multiple distilleries before aging?
    I don't know! Gillman certainly does! If they do, does the label have to read "vatted" instead of straight? or can it simply read "a blend of straights...?"

    And finally, what exactly is in any certain bottle of Van Winkle? Are there whiskies older than 10, 15, or 20, in bottles of Van Winkle 10yr, 15yr, and 20yr?

    Probably not now- Although they did have an excess of rye stock for a while which continued to age for many additional years (until some got too old and some got tanked), As I understand it there is a definite shortage of bourbon that goes into becoming VW. The 20 and 23 year old versions are most/definitely/likely S-W stock. The 15 year old is being sourced from either Bernheim or Buffalo Trace.

    There USED to be some single barrels of PVW15 running around, and I believe one or two of those may actually have been 16 or 17 years old, but That practice got stopped a while back... probably because there's simply not enough whiskey!

    Re: What bourbon did you purchase today? Spring 2010

    Yesterday I picked up a handle of OWA that had a white plastic top instead of the gold. Last time Hectic Bob was down this way he spotted it on the shelf but left it there. I went by the same store last night and it was still there so I figured it was providence.

    Anyway, it was quite a bit darker than the other handles with the gold tops and looked as though it showed a little evaporation. It is rich and woody and I would guess older than 7 years. But I am having trouble getting a date off the bottle. Does anyone know if OWA was ever bottled with a white top and if so, when?
