    But I would be dumb enough to buy it if it was all juice fom Versailles.

    I don't think they blend new whisky from the different distilleys before aging, rather the two barrels you choose could both be Woodford, or they could both be BF for that matter.

    If I were doing the choosing I would pick the barrel that had the best taste irrespective of where distilled.

    Well of course. I was just under the (apparently wrongful) impression that it was all blended Woodford/BF juice. So thought it would be swell to taste the Versailles stuff on its own. Turns out maybe I have?

    Re: Woodford Reserve Double Oak Single Barrel?!

    It is sort of misleading, though, since you are getting a single barrel of a previously batched whiskey.

    Well, you are just getting the one barrel.

    All of the Master's Collection products are 100% Woodford juice.

    With Distiller's Select, Woodford juice is barreled at Woodford and BF juice is barreled at BF. The BF goes into the warehouses at BF. Some of it becomes Old Forester and some of it is selected to become Woodford. The barrels selected for Woodford are then shipped to Woodford to finish aging there.

    When the whiskey is ready to bottle, they select whiskey from four different days of distillation. We'll call those the barrel sets. The tasters simply select the four sets that best match the profile. They don't know the source. When the four sets are selected, the distiller makes sure both distilleries are represented. The barrel sets aren't all the same size, so they don't each represent 25% of the batch.

    A bottling batch is 14,400 gallons, or about 110 barrels.

    For Double Oaked, they do everything to select a bottling batch, as described above, but instead of bottling it they put it into new, charred-oak barrels for additional aging.
