Not sure how accurate this is, but two things:
1¤ the latest release of VB17, although a wheater, is not SW. You have it listed with JPS and PVW.
2¤ Is ETL a wheater? I thought it was a 7-9 yr rye bourbon? Please clarify if this is the regular current release or a special edition.

I'm not seeing where I have Vintage 17 listed anywhere, either.
Also noticed that nobody has corrected my incorrect use of et al. Should be etc.

"Good" may be subjective, but that doesn't mean it's arbitrary.
this post, which was addressed shortly after it was published.
You can easily compare a wheater to a rye. We tend to think that mashbill is the be-all and end-all when it comes to defining characteristics. Yeast, barrels, warehouses, blending techniques and "distillery characteristics" are all just as important. I will go on record as saying I think ETL is much more similar to Weller 12 than it is to something like Evan Williams even though the mashbill of the later is more similar.
Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.
