    The other makers should follow suit.

    Re: If You Could Pick Any Single Barrel

    I'd like to see Jack Daniels at around 10-12years/non CF/105-110 proof. JD has been making what I call 'safe' whiskey for the masses and I would just like to see what the guys in Lynchburg could come up with for the enthusiast.

    Also, Weller 12 Barrel Proof is genius.
    I've got more whiskey than I need but not nearly as much as I'd like

    According to the guys at JD everything they make is for the enthusiast.

    If You Could Pick Any Single Barrel

They'd start next year with a 17 year old barrel proof bourbon. Alot of questions were asked but he had limited answers
    I hope the tour guide was right but I have to say that it strikes me as rather hard to believe that WT has a surplus of older stock.

    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

    This is one of the things about the whiskey tree that keeps me up at night. The only information I have been able to find on it was that it's #2, but the only thing that makes sense is #1. Hence the question mark.

    In addition to what others have said, I'd love to taste a single barrel VOB (VVOB?) in the 10-15 yr range or a 12+ year old Early Times bourbon, as odd as it sounds. High corn bourbons age very well (think Old Charter Classic, OCPR or Stagg) and I think Early Times has a lot of potential. That will never happen, of course.

    And they've always made it exactly the same way since God gave Mr. Jack the formula.

    I'll second that. I thoroughly enjoyed a pour of Greenore 15 a few years ago...should be similar, right?
