Yes, they did, in fact the brand has quite a history in that it changed hands a couple of times during the glut era and each new owner used the whisky available to them at the time.

Prior to 1993 Kentucky Tavern was a rye recipe Bourbon made under Glenmore/Yellowstone ownership and contained glut whisky up to 10-12 years old Bottled in Bond.

Between 1993-96 under United Distillers ownership Kentucky Tavern was a wheat recipe Bourbon that used the same Stitzel-Weller stock that went into Old Fitzgerald 12 year old.

Now it's an entry level Barton product using their high rye Bourbon recipe.
