    Garden & Gun Article on Julian Van Winkle

    August/Sept 2012 Garden & Gun magazine has article on Julian P. Van Winkle: "Julian P. Van Winkle III is one of the most respected names in bourbon. So why are people so angry at him?"

    Highly recommended reading. Very informative as to Pappy selection from BT barrels: after a tasting session and tasting ninety-four barrels: "only one dog in the bunch."

    Tried to copy article over from Garden & Gun website, but couldn't locate, as this edition just hit the mailbox. I'll try to copy at office tomorrow and post, unless someone can locate and post.

    Wow - look forward to seeing this article! I tried to find it on their website but came up short. So if they tasted 94 barrels, and found 93 to be left wanting . . . I wonder what becomes of those? Are those blended into something else, or just considered too far gone to be of use (or some mixture of the two). And I'm curious if that is their normal find (just better than 1%), or if a weather patterns in the last 23 years makes this an outlier.

    I may be wrong about the dog reference but I believe you have it backwards. They tasted 94 and liked 93. The dog was the bad one of the bunch.

    I think he meant he only found one bad one in the bunch, unless I read it wrong.

    ETA: or yeah, what he said.

    As for me it's because he waters his great boubon down to much.

    Yawn. This would have been a much better article if it had written by BarrelChar.

    The post with the article was deleted because it was a scanned copyright protected article. That is against the rules of SB.com. You can post a link to the article.
