Interesting that Wathen's has a 'late' batch/barrel # again. I saw some in Chicago last spring that were Barrel #1 or #2, which I assume were the first batches after the Medleys relocated their bottling to California. Must have figured out that some of us were differentiating the whiskey that way, so went back to the old sequence. Of course, you can still differentiate it by bottling location -- first Owensboro (Medley), then St. Louis (David Sherman), now San Jose. Many won't, though, of course.
