    Re: Col. E.H. Taylor Straight Rye

    All the whistlepig I've seen is priced at $70 - $75, at least as much as the CEHT's or more.

    that's the first thing I thought of too, but according to the COLA it's "Distilled, aged and bottled by Old Fashioned Copper Distillery, Frankfort, KY, DSP-113."

    I wonder what the ratio of rye to malt is.

    Buffalo Trace made it in Frankfort.

    Re: Col. E.H. Taylor Straight Rye

    It's too bad they won't put an age statement on it, even if it's only 4 years old. At that price, I don't think it's unfair for me to ask for a little transparency.

    ^^^ This makes me chuckle.

    While I do, seriously, agree with you - and it's not unfair to ask, but it's not gonna happen. Most of these specialty labels make their $$$ in mystique. Hell, Pappy 23 is over $200 retail, and you get no genuine transparency there!

    Sources on virtually anything from KBD - from $30 Willets to $250 Ryes (25 yr CS) is still unknown...

    We should be allowed to know - but...

    Re: Col. E.H. Taylor Straight Rye

    Based on BT announcement, I'm betting it is Barton rye and it will be very good.

    Oh, I know....

    the Willets are a funny example. Often we know the age but not the provenance. Except for the young "made in Indiana" ryes, of course, which are obviously LDI. With the Taylor, I guess we get to know the provenance more or less, but not the age.

    I guess it has to be one or the other
