    <font color=yellow>Ralph queries:</font color=yellow>
    <font color=orange>"What is this stuff? I've never heard of it before, and the age narrows the possibilities. If it's either Ken or Julian's whiskey I might better understand the quality - whoever made this should take a bow, and tell us a little about 'The Classic Cask'."</font color=orange>

    This, and the bourbon by the same name, is being marketed by Alan Shayne, president of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society US Chapter. Julian probably has the best insight as to its origin.

    Cheers,

    Bushido

    OK here's another bump for Doug and the quest for Classic Cask.

    Re: A New Rye

    I just searched on "old rip van winkle" to get an idea how the Kentucky Secretary of State's site works, and the one hit that turned up is Shuckman's Fish Co. and Smokery.

    What do I not understand about trademarks in Kentucky?

    Yours truly,

    Shuckman's sells a product that is marinated in Van Winkle bourbon.

    Drew,

    We notice that the Classic Cask line of bourbons and ryes are released every year or so and the label reflects the increasing ages of the product.

    Since a label change ( age of whiskey ) takes time and could be costly, do the owners go through this process every time a new bottling is created or were the labels submitted for approval at the beginning of the venture?

    Also are all the releases from the same original stock, or is new batch whiskey selected for each release?

    As I understand it , at some point Shuckmans went with Woodford Reserve.

    Lewis Shuckman switched from using my 15-year Old Rip to Woodford in his smoked fish about two ago. Brown-Forman pumped a bunch of $$$ into his facility.

    What kind of fish does he smoke, where, and where available?
