    I don't know if it happened today because I have not checked there much in a few days but TPS has listed a number of new Willetts.

    Re: Willet 5 yr bourbon/116 proof

    1. Which major distillery has KBD not bought barrels from?

    2. I was under the impression that peanut butter came from JB and Heavenhill.

    Haha, well put my friend.

    I'm pretty sure the lone distillery is either WT or BT/sazerac (or the old barton distillery).

    IMHO, if you are tasting peanuts, likely the source of the barrel is Jim Beam.
    I got a decent hint of peanut butter with the right amount of water with my first ever bottle of Booker's, so I believe you are correct.
