    I've had it in my head that the Medley was mixed with the COK, but I cannot find evidence to that and can't recall where I heard it now. I'll keep searching.

    Ah ha! Here this thread http://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...ghlight=tanked Thanks to Timothy of course for cataloging all this info!

    Originally from this thread:

    "Yep-that sounds correct. S/W never distilled any rye for me or anybody. The present rye in the F & G bottles is a marriage of two different rye distillations. We hope to continue bottling the presently tanked rye for another 11 years, unless it starts going south in the tank.
    We hope to start bottling BT rye in about 11 years.
