    I have to disagree with the critics of Eagle Rare 17yr, I love it. At the end of the night, trying to relax from the craziest days, I love to have a glass as a nightcap. Does it have the power and volume of some others?, no, and thats not a bad thing. Subtle and soothing all the way.

    I agree also. The wonderful thing about bourbon/whiskey is that you can try any variety of proof/mashbill/age. I like the ER17 also but I tend to mix it up so not to get bored with any one pour. One night may be Lot B and then the next Stagg or WLW.

    Heck take them all to barrel proof. Who here wouldn't love to try a barrel proof unchill filtered Sazerac????

What we need are two different collections, one of Antique extra aged products, and one of straight from the barrel products.

    About the only thing I would change with ER17 and Saz18 is the chill filtering.
    Timothy, I think the moniker Antique is kept because the names George Stagg and Thomas Handy have historic places in the American Straight whiskey industry. Yes I see your point, but I don't think we'll see two colletions anytime real soon - especially with the shortage of exrta aged whiskey. I don't think even 19 years old is really considered "antique" if you want to look at it that way.
