    I would like to taste a honey barrel of MM with more age and more proof also. 12yrs is something like 3 times longer than it's aged now isn't it? Sounds like a lot. As long as we are fantasizing lets get the fellas at MM to let us taste some barrels at +2 +4 and +6

    12 years is a bit over twice the usual MM aging period but they are seeking a balanced whisky without an overly woody effect.

    I'm not sure it's that young. But 8-10 years old seems to be a sweet spot for wheaters. I'd like to see MM in that range and maybe not even barrel proof. 107 would do. Sound familiar?
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Ive brought this up in other threads before. As basically all wheaters are descendants of Stitzel-Weller and Pappy Van Winkle(the man,not the bourbon), I'd like to see any of the modern wheaters at 12 years old and 100 proof. It would be sort of a nod to the legacy of Very Old Fitzgerald.

    One of the reasons Pappy bought the distillery was because Old Fitzgerald was already known as a quality brand and to his credit he continued with the wheat recipe developed by A. P. Stitzel. Pappy certainly made them famous though.

    Well, if wishes were fishes, every brand would have 6, 8, and 12 year old bonded expressions, too. at least that's how it is in my fantasy.
