I'll play Devil's advocate...since Mr. Lee passed isn't it impossible to add his label to the BTAC? As much as I like the idea, all his lots were personally selected. Without him making the selection, isn't it just Rock Hill?
Oh, and don't forget ETL 90th B-day bottle in your list.

ETL has no age statement, right? But, I seem to recall reading somewhere that it is aged at least 10 years. I haven't seen it in Indy for awhile but seem to recall that AAA10 and Charter 10 were being discontinued so that more ETL could be produced. Do any of our retailers out there know when it might be released again?
So would anyone really care or notice if they replaced the ER17 with ETL12 barrel strength or Blanton's Straight from the Barrel in the BTAC? Wouldn't that improve the lineup?

I dream of the day Blantons SFtB is available stateside. Soooo damned good.
But that was back in 2005 and it's nas for a reason. Recent private barrel picks running between 8 and 9 years.
