    Just going by the Whiskey Tree doc from this site, although it does have a question mark by it.

    To the question at hand, I'd love to see about a 12 year old JDSB at barrel proof just to see what one would taste like

    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.
    I hear you with the Weller, WT101@12y/o also comes to mind. OGD114@10y/o. I would love an early Bernheim wheater, 20y/o barrel proof.

    Came in here to say mostly this, I'd settle for 12 years old, though.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Me too. Wouldn't that be awesome?

    I have heard from two people independently that saw some barrels that said Ancient Age on them, but that's likely because Buffalo Trace Distillery was named Ancient Age Distillery at the time...so I don't believe that that informs the mash bill.

    Would be cool to have a BT Blend of Mashbills at cask strength a la the PHC2012. 12-15 Year Mash # 1 & 12-15 Year Wheated Mashbill. I guess it would essentially be a Stagg/WLW vatting.

    Re: If You Could Pick Any Single Barrel

    Seems I share taste with some who have already posted. Would love a regular production 12+ year unfiltered high or barrel proof Weller (Weller 12 and BTAC WLW are my favorites). Would really like an older (12-15 year) high proof Wild Turkey, OGD 114, and Old Fitzgerald.

    I am also going for an extra aged MM at higher proof.

    Would also like to get a cherry picked Van Winkle like was done with the 23yr decanter offering.

    Some Angel's Envy that has 10-12 years on it could be interesting and yes higher proof would be nice.

    Would like to hang out with Jim Rutledge for a day and have him pick me a barrel that he has been hiding away.

    Best regards, Tony

    While I could go for this, my current wish would be Dickel, fully aged (8-12yo), barrel proof.

    Was at the wild turkey distillery the other day, and the tour guide says that theyll be releasing a 17 year old barrel proof whiskey next year
