I'd love to see something like this. 10-15 YO at maybe 107 proof, something reminiscent of the old Ancient Age Barrel 107.
I don't think it's gonna happen, but I can dream. I emailed Mark Brown several years ago when BTAC took off, and he said there were no plans to release anything under BTAC with the higher rye mashbill. He didn't say why, but I have my suspicions that they can't. From what I understand, that mashbill is not BT's but belongs to Takara Shuzo, as does every brand associated with it. They can't just up and bottle a barrel strength (or any other new expression of) ETL, because Sazerac doesn't actually own that or any of the Age International brands.
