    Re: Bourbon in sherry casks

    Oh boy, that sounds like a good one. If they don't overdo the sherry the result should be very, very good. Wonder why they didn't present this iteration of RR at the recent Sampler? At said event I was reminded how good Russell's Reserve is. Adding a hint of Spanish wood-matured sherry is likely only to raise the ante..

    Gary, don't you think that WT might not want to whet our appetites for this and then hold it out of our reach by making it export only? Same reason we didn't get to taste Freedom I'm sure.

    Dane, thanks, you're right, I had missed the reference to "travel" in Omar's post. What a pity, and by the way, how can it be worth their while to sell this only in export markets? Sad.

    Re: Bourbon in sherry casks

    Perhaps they figure that most people who can afford to travel are the target group to buy the product. While we at SB.com are the more enthusiastic about trying the product, our numbers may not be enough to support a new product launch. Time for us to unite and lobby the distilleries for a special "SB.com" release of new products. Can you think of a better bunch of guinea pigs to test a new product on?

    No, I can't, and there's an old saw, you go home with the one that brought you. I am not complaining because WT offers many fine products to its home, U.S. domestic that is, market.

    But if you are going to launch a newbie as interesting as this one why forsake the one you first asked out..?
