    Is Walking Stick the new Elmer T Lee?

    I posed that question to Sku on twitter. But here is the COLA for a 90 proof single barrel offering from BT (https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonlin...14078001000401). I know Elmer was holding a walking stick in many recent photographs. Anyone closer to the situation have any info on this?

    Could be, makes sense, odd name though that doesn't convey any special meaning to me and I walk with a cane. A new single barrel from the folks that claim to be suffering a shortage. Oh well, perhaps it just extra stuff that doesn't fit in existing profiles.

    Oh, oh, I got it. Handicap Whisky, just the thing to put a spring in your step.

    Have to wonder what mashbill this is going to be? Have to think the BT higher corn if this isn't replacing ETL, seems odd, but something to fit between ER and CEHT?

    A relatively thorough online search turned up "nothing" about a Founders Company or Founder's Company in Louisville. I did find a Founder's Brewing Co. in Michigan that sells beer outside its region (like in Philadelphia). I thought it might have been a private label BT was bottling for somebody.

    A collaboration with Brown-Forman?

    All the way at the bottom. It's an assumed name of Buffalo Trace (I assume this is similar to a DBA for a small business/sole proprietorship).

    It is interesting for a company with well documented shortages to be contemplating a new single barrel offering.

    that's gotta be the lamest, no pun intended, name for a bourbon I've seen yet.
    Think about how stupid the average person is.....then realize that half of them are more stupid than that.
