    Thanks, Jeff. Problem solved - I'll just buy BT in KY.

    Re: Favorite Pour ....

    I don't know the answer to your question CL. I asked Kris a brief question in passing, and you've seen his reply. The method you describe is certainly the way Weller 19 is produced.

    If GTS was produced en masse ... well that would sort of spoil the hunt, wouldn't it?

    I agree, even though this is one VERY fine bourbon, it would spoil a certain appeal that one has come to love about Stagg...

    Plus, my wife would get pissed at all the GTS stock I have in my bunker. She might not let me bunker up on anything else that is claimed to be limited. Now that would be bad.

    No shit , I can just see us now trying to unload that at clearance prices. I don't feel so good right now
    It doesn't matter I bought it for a reason and that still holds.

    If they bring out 2500 bottles a year , no problem. If it becomes a label that we can assume will always be on the shelf, that will remove a lot of the mystique for me.

    Re: Favorite Pour ....

    See I was thinking the other way around. I would love to see them bring out Stagg as an on the shelf all the time bottling because then we could compare it to other bourbon bottlings more fairly. Was Stagg really that much better than say Eagle Rare 17 or WT Kentucky Spirit or Pappy Van Winkle, or is it just as good as those bottlings, still near the head of its class, but with the additional aura of being RARE to push it over the top. I guess thats what I have always thought (for a long time for me, to be hinest, it was also dampened by the fact I could not get a bottle). Now that I have a bottle, and there is the prospect of getting another when I want one, my opinion is Stagg is a top 10, maybe a top five, but proabably not my favorite or the best bourbon I have had. Not head and ahoulders above the rest, but a superlative example of bourbon none the less.

    I am just curious if more people would lean that way if the bottling became more common.

    Interesting, and it will be interesting to see how your theory plays out when everyone can get it whenever they want. Though $40 might keep some from trying it if it is not a limited edition.
