    Re: Am I the only one who likes Pikesville?

    I know they are very proud of that rye, very proud (rightfully) of their contribution to its success. BF certainly doesn't create brands like a HH or BT does, but it wouldn't surprise me if, since they were making it anyway, they put down a few barrels of their own.

    Their policy is that they will do contract distilling for the other majors but they aren't interested in making and aging whiskey for the spot market.

    This fall's Masters Collection will be a rye, so that might be an indicator that they're considering it.

    That's a Masters Collection that I may actually buy. Chuck, do you know anything else about it? Age in particular?

    Re: Am I the only one who likes Pikesville?

    It's in the range of eight years. It's 100% rye, using both malted and unmalted rye grain. They used two different barrel entry proofs and also aged it in both new and used barrels. I'm not sure which combination they'll actually launch this fall, but I think it will be the used barrels one.

    Sounds like a new rendition of Lot No. 40.
