    Pick this up to day. 13y LDI and 16y 4R rye blended and put back into barrel. Very good. Very smooth.

    Thought the 16yr component was Barton?

    yes, and the LDI is a 6yr based on reports from the distillery owner on here. But, heck, who cares we all agree it tastes great.

    This was a single barrel selection. I asked if they knew the source, and without hesitation that was the info he gave me. It's very smooth. The LDI is the king of the 2 rye's in this barrel.
    I was shocked when he told me the 16y was 4R.

    Gotta be bad info, pure and simple. 4R doesn't make a rye. Not sure when the last time they did, but again, wagering on bad info here.

    ETA: I think this 1B may be aged a lil while longer in ex 4R bourbon barrels.

    It's surprising how often something that sounds like it could be true is repeated as if it's absolutely true.

    It's true until it isn't (and vice versa) it would seem.

    You're right OD - it does taste great
