    Julian Van Winkle interview

    I came across an April 20, 2010 interview with JVW and a search didn't
    show it listed so I thought I'd share. The video is listed as 52 minutes
    long.

    This link goes to the video interview with a transcript if you'd prefer to
    read it. The video on this page is listed as 1 hour 11 minutes (which
    coincides with the time notations along the transcript.)

    I found the more interesting topics (history aside) came later in the interview:

    55:00 Julian "...tried a thirty-year-old before, and it's--I don't care who
    made it--it's not going to make it. It's not going to make the trip very,
    very gracefully."

    63:00 His "desert island" whiskey - "Probably some very extra old fifteen-
    year-old 90 proof Old Fitzgerald. Best stuff on the planet."

    67:00 Re: BT - "We are basically still using the Weller recipe." and
    elaborates on warehouse placement of barrels & picking the good ones

    69:00 (regarding sales figures) - "We're probably, uh, you know, we're at
    about five or six thousand cases which doesn't go very far at all." and then
    goes on to explain the allocation.

    Enjoy!

    Re: Julian Van Winkle interview

    This is a great interview, as well as the others in the Buffalo Trace Oral History project. This was surprisingly only shortly discussed here. So far I've seen the Leonard Riddle and Ronnie Eddins, Jimmy and Freddie Johnson, Harlen Wheatley, and Mark Brown interviews. Spending some time watching these is highly recommended.

    Excellent site that I found a couple weeks ago when I saw it on here, amazing to hear from the people who had and still have such a big influence in the industry.

    I guess I didn't use the correct search words but thanks for the link.
    I agree that the discussion was relatively minor given the interviewees
    and wealth of information. I'll have to check out the others now.

    Thanks for the link!

    The picture of Ronnie Eddins in the back of the latest Bourbon Review caught my eye this morning. Could anyone look happier?
