So BT announced today that they were going to release a new EH Taylor, an 11 1/2 year old BIB single barrel. Press release here:

This, of course, follows the "old fashioned sour mash" release from earlier this year.

For me, this raises the question of what exactly is the EH Taylor series. When BT first bought the Taylor name, they talked about a ryed bourbon equivalent of Van Winkle, which would have regular releases. But now it seems more like another version of the Experimental Collection or maybe an attempt to do something more like Parker's Heritage. Any one have any thoughts as to what BT is up to? It almost seems like they are just sort of winging it.

I have a bottle of the first Taylor but haven't gotten around to it yet. Reviews were pretty midling. I'll be interested to see if this one fares better.
