    It also notes in section 19 that this is a "cask strength " bottling, thus proof and abv would be written in.

    I wonder if the EC 12 at barrel proof is meant to compete with KC single barrel.

    In any case if HH has the extra aging barrels in rackhouses to put to-wards this, I'd prefer they concentrate on improving FC, perhaps with an age statement of 8 years. Why not give FC an upgrade in taste and image?

    So, which age statement bit the dust?
    I just checked the bottle of Basil Hayden in my cabinet (purchased a couple of months ago) and it is age-stated as 8 years old, so yes, this does appear to be a new NAS for BH.

    I recently got excited over the JD 10 Million Case label and
    the Chieftain's Ardbeg 17 year. Ben Kickert rained on my

    Does this mean the usual EC12 ( stated as 'Small Batch' and '94 proof' ) is switching to 'cask strength'?

    Holy crap, I totally missed that! If this comes to pass, it's great news! I'm already a fan, and a barrel-strength version would be in my house the day it's available.
    Josh - did you notice the bump in proof on the bottle you saw?

A way to make it easier to kill or sell off a "brand" later? Or is it simply to mislead consumers? (I'm not being factitious or accusatory... I am genuinely curious as to why they do this.)
    BT's shortage is in wheated bourbon, my bet is these aren't wheaters.

    I think it was already established here some time back that Clear Spring Distilling is a Costco brand produced under contract from BT.

    Since the Jeffers Creek label lists only four specific barrels my guess that it's a barrel-selection deal for a bar, retailer, etc.

    For the Jack they still only listed at 40, would have been nice to see them kick it up a more like it used to be, or as they have done with other recent bottling's.
