    Re: If You Could Pick Any Single Barrel

    Since we're wishing out loud, how about a barrel proof/unfiltered WT at 15 years old?

    Re: If You Could Pick Any Single Barrel

    Yeah, I agree. Nice idea for a thread Steve.

    Funny, your first example is something close to what I would pick. With me and my love of wheaters, a 12-15 year old Weller at 100 proof would probably be my first choice. A close second would be an ER17 at 101 proof. See where I'm going with this? New and improved versions of Weller Centennial and ER 101.

    This was my second choice.... but I've tasted something close (and DAMN was it good). so... anyone tried BT mash 2 at cs at 15 yo?

    Re: If You Could Pick Any Single Barrel

    Any high quality, hand-picked, cask strength, unfiltered, 12-18yo barrel from Buffalo Trace would make me happy.

    I have learned there are honey barrels from all distilleries, all mashbills and all ages, but the above criteria would be where I would start. Thankfully there are already quite a few whiskeys that already meet most of the requirements.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    If You Could Pick Any Single Barrel

    Buffalo Trace mash bill #1 - aged 15 years - 6 month sherry hogshead finish - bottled at natural cask strength (around 70%)

    Also known as sherry-finished GTS, I guess.

    Re: If You Could Pick Any Single Barrel

    Hmmm, 15 responses and 14 of them request cask strength. Definite trend here.

    I've had the Abraham Bowman 17 and 18 year old cask strength, which is the BT mash #2. Great stuff

    Re: If You Could Pick Any Single Barrel

    Maker's Mark at 12 yrs and a 100 proof.
    OGD BIB, but not sure how old, maybe 7-9 (that seems to maybe be what the age might have been during the glut, but that's a guess)

    Irish: Black Bush at 100 proof at 18 yrs.

    Scotch: Macallan at 100 proof and 25 yrs

    Are you sure these are mash #2? I have heard otherwise but not from an authoritative source.
