    Depends on what you want to define as S-W wheated bourbon. The stocks I have seen in the past were "Old Fitzgerald", from both DSP 16 and DSP 113. At that time is was being blended into Crown as Chuck stated above. About 5 years ago early conversations with a Diageo Exec were promising regarding getting some of these old stocks released for others to barrel as single barrels. Didn't go anywhere at the time but as we know now, other bottlers have gotten access to some of this stock.

    That was exactly what I was getting at. Probably Bernheim wheated bourbon there too, and who knows what else Diageo may have sitting around. And even if it is genuine S-W wheater , as Chuck said, there's a good chance it's not all that good.

    Re: Stitzer-Weller making bourbon again

    I believe Zoeller mentioned, when he did the Jefferson's, that there was "more where that came from." I'm just very wary of any 20+ year old bourbon, especially when it hasn't been babied to get it to that age without over-wooding. I'm much more interested in what Diageo actually plans to do at SW, distilling-wise.
