    Smile Buffalo Trace 2006 Antique Collection Press Photo

    Hey folks,
    Here is the press photo for the BT 06 Antique Collection. It is ready for shipment to stores. Distributers should be picking it up this week and you could see it on shelves as early as the end of the week in KY. Good luck finding it! I know Liquor Barn and Shoppers Village stores will be getting limited quantities. I look forward to tasting all of these as well as reviewing them and reading your reviews. Cheers!

    Um, I am sorry, please excuse me for a moment I need some time to myself.... Uh check that, I need the rest if the evening to be alone.

    Handy.... I think Handy is going to be in my hand quite often as I love the thought of a BP Rye! If it is anything like Saz Jr kicked up a notch I may have to have work even more to bunker a few cases of that stuff.

    Thanks for the picture.

    They're just fantastic! I want them now! Can anyone shed some light on the age of the William Larue Weller.....is it 19 years?

    The William Larue Weller that came out last year was 12 years old. There was another from 2001 that was 19yrs. but it is no longer bottled.

    They look so good, I want them all right now!

    Does anyone know anything about this years selection, specifically?

    Also I've never heard of Handy Sazerac Rye, anyone know anything about this one?

    Thomas Handy Sazerac Rye is an 8 year old barrel proof rye. Yum!

    You know I completely missed reading that, and that means it could very well be the same whiskey as the Sazerac Jr.! Excuse my ignorance if everyone is saying to themselves right now "Yeah, no duh!" But that is very exciting to me as I truly love that stuff and every time I drink it had wondered to myself how good a higher proof version of it would be?

    Probably going to take a while yet until it reaches California unfortunately...

    There may also be up to a 1 year difference on the two, the Handy being the older. Not a lot but some. I'm figuring that barrel selection also played into this as well.

    I just got an email from Brett @ Binny's. He said in the next couple of weeks that he will have hand picked Saz Jr....which in his own words he is "really excited about, as the stuff I sampled through was universally outstanding".

    Sounds great to me! I think Binny's should open a store here.....
