Can anyone confirm? Just curious as this is my first rye and it seems the origin of various ryes is a bit harder to determine than bourbon.
    First rye? Man, you're setting the bar pretty high! Enjoy!

    from what I've read the VWFR rye is still the old mixed juice which was tanked some time ago. Will be interesting to see when BT's ryes hit VW and Saz 18. Anyone know when the clock started for those?

    Re: What rye did you purchase today? Fall/Winter '13

    Some time back Julian said he had enough rye tanked for a 13 year supply so I estimate it should be all BT distillate by late 2015 or 2016. Of course he was talking about the Medley/Cream of Kentucky old stock that was tanked at 19 years of age. He also has mentioned BT stock would be blended in when it came of age and now that the BT stocks are over 13 what goes into VWFRR 13 or Sazerac 18 is not being disclosed.

    Mr. Wheatley said the BT distillate is about ready for being able to take over for the tanked Saz18 (which is about a year from being finished).

    Picked up a Jefferson's 10 year Canada-sourced rye, Batch 43. Paid a bit more than I can get the newer bottlings for, but not seeing much Canadian Jeff around anymore.

    Thanks all. I have no interest in drama or controversy over this, let me state that up front. The geek in me finds the old medley/cream of KY components fascinating from a "history in the bottle" perspective, that's what compelled me to pull the trigger on this one vs. any number of others I could have started with. I agree its a high bar out of the gate and I am glad to have it. Should my '13 FRR contain some of that history it will make a very interesting bottle all the more interesting to me.

    I believe the original VWFRR last year is 2017 after that it will be BT juice. That's right Joe I said juice live with it.

    Yes, I wasn't sure if it was tanked in 2004 or by 2004 so I was estimating from 2003.

    So, is the current juice worse than the old juice and better than the future juice? Or is that juice going to be better than the tanked juice and the currently bottled juice? Is it C of Ky juice or BT juice? Tanked, mingled or fresh squeezed? Anyone? Joe?
