    THH is only 6 1/2 years old, that is why some have criticized it for being in the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection.

    BT has only one rye mashbill. So, unless it is from Barton's stocks (hghly unlikely), it'll be the same as Saz and THH.

    Thanks for the clarification guys. I'm a little more educated today due to my brethren.

    Okay. So 60+ for a 6 yo rye?

    My excitement has officially been tempered. I would still like to try it, however.

    To be fair we don't know the age yet. (or do we?)
    As I said earlier I'll pay Handy price even though it's 100 proof but only if it's at least 10 years old.

    There's no way it's at least 10 years old. It looks like there's two labels too, one referencing BiB status and the other just referencing Taylor himself. The BiB one says "Distilled, Aged and Bottled" and includes the DSP, whereas the other label just says "Distilled and Bottled" and has no DSP on it. Looks like at least two batches of this stuff, and there's no telling how different they might be from each other.

    I still have high hopes, but I do not like the idea of one expensive release made up of differing batches with very little, if any, information available to tell them apart.

    Re: Col. E.H. Taylor Straight Rye

    They officially announced this today. Here's the most interesting line from the press release.

    "An altogether different recipe and profile than Sazerac Rye, this recipe contains just rye and malted barley, no corn."

    It is BIB but NAS.

    Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr. Straight Rye Whiskey will be available in late August and will be released annually. The suggested retail price is $69.99 for a 750ml bottle.
