Oops, now I see it in post #62 - a 2007 interview with Eddie Russell per Chuck. Never mind.

    Here's the most recent quote of the 65% rye stuff:

    He doesn't say where he gets his information. It reads like a rehash of previously posted information.

    Re: Whiskey Tree

    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.

    ETL is listed multiple times as BT rye mash #2 (lower corn).

    Where do you see it listed as a wheater?

    Re: Whiskey Tree

    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.

    I'm embarrassed for you, Josh! That said, it was perfectly legitimate for you to use "et al." in that context. "Et al." simply means "and others"; although its preferred usage is to refer to people, it may also be used to refer to objects. In the latter case, it is synonymous with (some uses of) "etc."

    "Good" may be subjective, but that doesn't mean it's arbitrary.

    The latest version of the tree lists Vintage 17, and also you switched from et al to etc at that time :-)

    Where do you see it listed as a wheater?
    When they compared it to Weller. How can you compare a wheater to a rye?

    What do you mean by this sentence??

    Josh clearly has ETL listed as BT#2 low corn.

    I think he's referring to this post, which was addressed shortly after it was published.

    Re: Whiskey Tree

    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.
