    I tried that one at the Keystone store a while back and agree that it was very good. Unfortunately, they were sold out and only had the sample bottle behind the counter.

    Re: The best versions of BT's high rye mashbill

    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.

    I had intended to edit the list in the first post as I go. I didn't realize we lose edit capability after some time.

    Looking through old posts on the BUB I've also found references to Ancient Age Barrel 107, which was 10 year old 107 proof. Sounds delicious.
    Both are stellar. I'm still sitting on a couple of the AA Barrel 107s.

    The early Bulleit in the ETL square bottle is probably also this recipe, in both 90 and 107 guise.

    My understanding is that Mr. Lee created the taste profile, and very well may have selected batches - but not every ETL batch was passed by him. To avoid it being like Blantons - even just a barrel proof ETL would be pretty cool!

    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?

    Re: The best versions of BT's high rye mashbill

    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?

    That was actually posted here by Ken Weber (then brand manager for Sazerac) at post #4 in December 2005. http://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...lmer-T-Lee-age

    But that was back in 2005 and it's nas for a reason. Recent private barrel picks running between 8 and 9 years.

    Would people notice...YEAH. The flippers would double their prices for ER17, saying it is discontinued. I DO like the idea of an ETL12-15 year again though.

    I would notice. ER17 is a completely worth addition to the lineup, and is currently the most "antique" of the Antique Collection. The 2012 19 year was excellent. I vote for adding an ETL 15 107 to the lineup, and changing ER17 to ER20.
