    Re: Where's all the aged wheated bourbon barrels

    Not a big fan of HH wheaters myself either, just doesn't seem to be their thing.

    I think I'm in the minority here (and maybe everywhere?). I like pretty much everything else from HH I've ever had, but their wheated stuff doesn't do it for me at all.

    Haven't ever tried hard to figure out what I'm not getting from them that I get from the Weller line.
    I like Larceny but have never gone back for more of any other of their sub-$20 offerings.

    Re: Where's all the aged wheated bourbon barrels

    That's the thing.

    Where are the barrels similar to the PHC4th? that are aging at HH that most of us were excited about.

    Where are the barrels from BT? PVW releases are so small.

    Since everything at the distillery are logged and recorded, is there a count of how many wheated barrels they have in their rack house and is that information available to the public?

    Probably YES. Probably NO. The distilleries, in my experience don't give that sort of info out; but I'm pretty sure they know what they're storing. I imagine they fear a competitor being able to predict what might be released, and when, and be able to 'one-up' the release.... but, hey; ask the question of anyone who might answer. You might get a surprise.... and even an answer.

    I think you answered your own question.

    This has been addressed with the "BT, W12, ETL, OWA Shortage" threads. A few distilleries may have increased production ~10 years ago, but not enough to support the sudden and explosive growth in demand that they have experienced over the last 2-4 years in particular. Hence the "regional and sporadic" shortages of just about anything popular on the mid-shelf and up.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Of course there is, Federal Law requires strict record keeping of the amount of alcohol produced and the distillers know exactly what recipe and where stored. No disclosure requirement though except to the Treasury Dept.

    Re: Where's all the aged wheated bourbon barrels

    The good news is that Sazerac is apparently coming out with the 1792 wheated bourbon from the former Barton distillery. Should be tasty stuff..... but at what price?

    I pray it's less than $50.

    I feel that another issue, besides the unanticipated Boom, is that most of the decision makers in Kentucky seem to have a prejudice against Wheaters. Does anyone else ever get this sense?
