My only reason for speculating thus is because Lincoln Henderson is one of those distillers whose name is associated with a specific product's flavor and style. His name on the bottle almost silently screams the Old Forester mashbill, although the bottle design seems to suggest the lighter Woodford style flavor profile - especially at 90 proof.

Either way, this promises to be an outstanding bourbon. I get the impression that there will be some experimentation in the works, so we may see a whole range of mashbills, bottling proofs, finishes and whatnot.
I'm looking forward to this launch with 'bated breath.
Well a whiskey from Brown Forman during the Henderson era sound interesting Michael. I still got 2 early (one is batch 1) Woodford from his era in the bunker and I do like those better than the current.
That said I still want to know the source for sure. I know that these deals are bound by confidentiality agreements sometimes, but there is also sometimes an ill wiliness in general to put out accurate information on the labels. A good example is BIB that has the dsp number on the label by law in USA, but not on export bottles.
