Flyfish, in regard to the Four Roses Yellow, I stand corrected; in fact the way they have their website set up to explain the process is what I was hoping to find after staring at a bottle of McAfee's Benchmark and being unable to figure out almost anything about it at all. Evan Williams has a website, but there isn't a whole lot there to describe exactly how they but the bourbon together as compared to Four Roses, and Benchmark has nothing at all.

In regard to WT 101, I think that all age statements are simply the age of the youngest bourbon in the bottle, regardless of everything else. For the more informed consumer it's just nice to have the knowledge of the youngest link in the chain I imagine.
