    Re: If You Could Pick Any Single Barrel

    I guess I'm just either foolish or pragmatic - I'm happy with the current level of innovation and new/special product presentation. The major distillers are moving as fast as I could wish - good job, boys!

    This!

    In addition, I'd like to see the current tanked Sazerac 18 go out with a bang and have it released as Barrel Proof for the final release.

    Almost missed this one.

    Yes! superb idea. I would love to see what those whiskeys can do at 12 y/o!

    That WT 20yr Rye sounds interesting! Yummy, especially if it spent those 20years on the bottom floor of their coolest warehouse.

    Re: If You Could Pick Any Single Barrel

    Not so much a single barrel, but I'd love to see a couple of the Master Distillers from different distilleries get together trade a few barrels to blend with their product. It would be cool to see what each distiller could do with the other's product.

    Great thread Steve. This might be pushing the guidelines but for me...KBD honey barrel pick of one of their stellar 17-21yo wheater short barrels, barrel strength, NCF. Liquid f'ing candy.

    I wholeheartedly agree, provided I get at least one bottle!
