    Re: New Barton Bourbons

    Read the old thread and now I'm getting real excited! Still wish they hadn't taken the age statement off VOB but this could go a long ways to making things right.

    That is for me anyway. Now if I had been drinking VOB for the past 40 - 50 years I'd still be pissed.

    Don't be silly. No one can drink Barton that long.
    I'm always happy to see new bourbons hit the shelf. They always serve a purpose. I either like em or they help throw others off the scent of the good stuff. Either way its a win

    Re: New Barton Bourbons

    Though it will be NAS, the wheated could theoretically be in 8-9 year range based on doing the math from John's older thread. I'd be quite happy to see this as the market can really use another quality wheated bourbon with a little age.

    Not just any wheater, a 1792 collection wheater.

    Do I detect some sarcasm there? I hear you. Let's just say I'm "hopeful". Ultimately flavor, price, and quality will be the ultimate arbiter of it's value and desirability.

    I do hope this collection turns out to be a notch above and has enough stock to make it widely available.

    Re: New Barton Bourbons

    Last June I was at Barton and the tour guide told me that he heard that Barton was coming out with a barrel proof the following Fall.
    Better late than never.
    I am looking forward to the wheater espicially if true it's 8-9 years old.
    Now I will do some nit picking.
    The label says the sweetness comes from the wheat.
    I always assumed that wheat was mild in taste which allows the sweetness from the corn to come through vs the spicey rye which masks the corn sweetness.

    C'mon Sean, that's a typo. You obviously meant "smoooooooooooth".
