    Saz already owns two perfect bourbons: Very Old Barton and George T. Stagg.

    Re: Does the ‘perfect’ bourbon exist? Buffalo Trace's quest for "The Holy Grail".

    If Buffalo Trace says they have produced the perfect bourbon then that's hubris, but if they say that continues to be their quest, even if they say this project has moved them in that direction, then I think that's appropriate and exactly what we want from our distilleries.

    Josh, I agree. For me, the George T. Stagg is about as good as it gets.

    However, I admit to being relatively new to whisk(e)y (<10 years) and most likely have not sampled the vast range that the majority of folks here have.

    My goal is to remedy that in the future. :-D

    Re: Does the ‘perfect’ bourbon exist? Buffalo Trace's quest for "The Holy Grail".

    It's late and I'm tired and I have to get up early tomorrow to go drink more whiskey. I can tell you what it's all about but I don't need to because it's all explained here. So check it out. It's pretty cool.

    Haven't tasted any of it yet. That's tomorrow.

    Sounds intriguing to say the least. Did I miss it, or were the ages of the oak trees mentioned somewhere? Also, the lower entry proof certainly got my attention. Old growth oak used for barrels and low entry proof is something I've been speculating as a golden combination.

    I'll show some ignorance here and then ask, what is the average age used for modern barrels?

    375 mL. Guess I know what we won't be seeing in SoCal, or at least not at reasonable prices.
