For me, it has always been (and will always be) a small cache S&W Lot B discovered in my wandering path during my early bourbon days. The light which appeared in my dark path guiding me to those bottles was kindly provided by our late, great friend & adviser Tim Sousley. I will always be forever grateful to Tim for his mentoring & advice when I was a newbie. Although I never met him in person (my great loss), I might very well still be wandering around in the 'whiskey forest' without his kind assistance. So, perhaps there have been - or will be - higher ranked wheaters passing my way or across my palate, but that Lot B will forever remain the best for me.
Rest in Peace Tim and thanks again!
