    BourbonSteve,
    I fear the answer to your question is "out-of-state." I have never seen Stagg, ETL, or Saz in GA, or any VW rye, and I doubt they'll be sending this stuff here.

    Hey guys. I'm sure this is one of many "experimental" BT whiskies. I was assured by the rep from BT that the success of the antique collection would further their exploration into different and experimental expressions. The fact of the matter is; it might not be that great, or at least a product they want to hold onto for a while. Not just the taste, but the idea. Bottles like these sell on their rareness, and as I can see almost all of us want one, or would at least pay a few bucks to try it.

    I've got my own "experiments" in a barrel in my garage and it didn't cost anywhere near $46 per 375 ml, and I'm including the barrel and starter bourbon.

    wow

    This BTEC release is going to be a tough set to find anywhere! I have emailed tons of places and most are not going to ever even see it!!! Anyone else having more luck than me?

    Nope. What little that's going to be around here was apparently spoken for months ago

    Huzzah!!!!!!!

    I would like to put in a big plug for Party Source in Newport, KY.
    Having expended all of my local options, I stopped in on my way back from Cinci.
    I asked a few people on the floor about BTEC and got "deer in the headlights".

    I asked for the spirits specialist and was introduced to Jay.
    He was impressed that I drove from Lexington and indicated that he received an allocation and was calling his A-list customers to offer it to them.

    He offered me the last bottle. Firepot. I slipped in my own drool, only once on the way to the register.

    Notwithstanding, this is a great store. They have cooking classes and tastings and a great web site. Ten times friendlier than Cork and Bottle.

    When I went to C&B they gave me a lecture about charred new oak barrels and 51% corn, but couldn't tell me &^% about the BTEC. Kind of weird.

    Well, I know that I am not going to see any of these releases. If I do it will be at absurdly inflated prices. I am looking forward to the commercial releases that come from the experiments.

    I do remember reading about a barrel of Glenmorangie Single Malt Scotch that was being aged in Kentucky at BT. Anyone hear how that turned out?

    That sounds suspicously like what I read about on p. 140 of Waymark and Harris's Classic American Whiseys (1995), but it was being aged at Marker's Mark, who provides the bourbon barrels for Glenmorangie. At this point, that malt should be well aged (considering Kentucky climate vs, Scotland), but I haven't heard anything more about it, either.

    Now on ebay, a 3 bottle set of the experimental collection. Seller is "jakecollectibles" and starting price is 475.00. Anyone know who this guy is? It seems to me that maybe he owns a liquor store!
