I have a few bottles of the 18yr Bourbon, and the 22yr Rye in the bunker for now. I recall that the Bourbon was very pleasent. If anyone is interested in Upstate NY, I happen to know where several bottles of the 22yr Rye are still on shelves.
I did drink the CC 15 Y 86-01 for the third or forth time today. Very light, spicy and unlike any other KBD rye bottling. Loots of wood tannins make it feel a bit overage as well. I could swear that this one and the earlier bottling of the same that I tasted at the gazebo 2006 is not from the same source (Bernheim) as most other KBD rye. It doesn’t taste like Medley ether to me and isn’t the old stock of that from 84-85? My personal guess is that it is from one of the “locals” HH or Barton’s. Side by side with ORVWFRR H made it taste lighter and woodier still, despite lower age and much lighter collar.

Oscar, you want me to get you one next time I am in CA? There is a potetnial for 1-2 ounces of evaprotaion though (just kidding)
I am back there the Week of June 16th.
They are (were?) running a special on a couple different bottles of it here in Nashville, I almost picked one up but opted for Rock Hill Farms instead. Haven't tried the Classic Cask, but not disappointed in my decision.
I looked and looked and could not find this bourbon in anywhere. Hopefully, I'll do better with May's BOTM when it posts.
