    It is odd, isn't it, that they did not make mention of SW. They did it clumsily with the 17 and 18 bottles, leading some to wonder the juice's true origin.
    If it is SW, why wouldn't you advertise it?
    Maybe the juice is from somewhere else?

    For that matter to say it contains Stitzel-Weller doesn't necessarily mean 100% Stitzed-Weller.

    With regard to the Jefferson's whiskey brand which is owned by spirits company Castle Brands Inc., who also has a 60% ownership in Gosling's Rum and said rum is bottled at Heaven Hill...hmmm.

    Yeah, we covered that one. Speculation is this will be used for the barrel purchase customers.

    We tasted a sample of the 21 at barrel proof back in October at a lunch with Trey. It was right around 140 proof and I'm pretty sure we committed to a barrel which should be headed our way pretty soon. I don't recall any mention of SW in this offering .. I do recall that it's pretty darn limited and we had to sing to talk him into carving out a barrel. Sadly .. I wasn't paying close enough attention to know all that was said. We'll find out for sure pretty soon & get the specifics on it.
    Tasting notes are likewise difficult .. as the high proof overwhelmed .. but there was enough floral expression popping up like spring buds above the fresh snow that we did the deal.
    As for SW amounts in their later releases .. Trey has been forthcoming about the fact that the SW juice was running low and .. that the releases he's coming out with now .. starting sometime in December I think .. are mostly SW .. 80 or 90%. Someone else on this board pointed out that the other 10-20% must be 18 years old to still be able to call it an 18 year old.
    It would be nice to know from Trey which batches, releases, etc are pure SW .. although a tasting should be an indication.

    I'm thinking the previous mention was bourbon, not rye
