    Something like that is what I anticipate will happen with a lot of them. Since many are producing something different than they typical Bourbon I can see some majors or middle size distilleries buying stocks that might come into play in vattings or mingelings with more mainstream products.

    Maybe well be seeing "Silent Micro's Tastings" someday.

    It'll never hapen (answer to thread's question) because the micro distillers want money now and will never age anything.

    I wouldn't say they will never age anything Oscar but I can see why most won't.

    I'm not a gin drinker, but I'll make another recommendation for Smooth Ambler. Their Barrel Aged Gin was very good to my uneducated gin palate. Aged 3 months in half new white oak and half used Old Scout barrels, bottled at 99 proof.

    Really good gin. I've bought a number of bottles, and will continue to do so.
    i've enjoyed all of the ethereal batches except batch 5 (purple label) which tasted like gin and perfume, but berkshire mountain's gin line is excellent.

    It is happening, but only a few will do it.

    There will be some released this year. Probably be single barrel and barrel proof. The latest sample michealturtle got was what will be released. It is amazing stuff.

They started filling barrels March 2012, so who knows when it will truly be ready. I'd like to see it age 6 years, but figure they will sell it much sooner to make some money.
    Their website seems to go into loving graphic detail in every area except one: it has no mention at all of backset, that I could find. Are they making a sweet mash whiskey?
