They don't need to change the BTAC, just release Blanton's Straight from the Barrel domestically.
I recently got a bottle of the export stuff. I'll let everyone know how it is.
Isn't the Ltd. Ed. Bowman 18 yr bourbon that PS and the Bowman gift shop had BT rye #2?
There is no "they." These are two different companies. I don't mean to suggest they're in conflict, I have no reason to think they are, but what they do for each other is what it is. I don't think it has changed one iota since the relationship began more than 20 years ago. The point I'm trying without success to make is that you're going down the wrong road if you think of them as one entity.
The fact that BT makes both mash bills but doesn't use the Age mash bill for any of its own, BT brands, really tells you everything you need to know. They're like roommates who are just roommates, not friends.
Wishing Age would come out with an older or higher proof expression of its whiskey is one thing. That's not outside the realm of possibility. It's just never going to happen under the auspices of something that BT does.

As long as you have good whiskey you're not "unemployed", you're "Funemployed!!!"
