Julian Van Winkle interview

Recommended Posts

silverfish

I came across an April 20, 2010 interview with JVW and a search didn't

show it listed so I thought I'd share. The video is listed as 52 minutes

long.

This link goes to the video interview with a transcript if you'd prefer to

read it. The video on this page is listed as 1 hour 11 minutes (which

coincides with the time notations along the transcript.)

I found the more interesting topics (history aside) came later in the interview:

55:00 Julian "...tried a thirty-year-old before, and it's--I don't care who

made it--it's not going to make it. It's not going to make the trip very,

very gracefully."

63:00 His "desert island" whiskey - "Probably some very extra old fifteen-

year-old 90 proof Old Fitzgerald. Best stuff on the planet."

67:00 Re: BT - "We are basically still using the Weller recipe." and

elaborates on warehouse placement of barrels & picking the good ones

69:00 (regarding sales figures) - "We're probably, uh, you know, we're at

about five or six thousand cases which doesn't go very far at all." and then

goes on to explain the allocation.

Enjoy!

This is a great interview, as well as the others in the Buffalo Trace Oral History project. This was surprisingly only shortly discussed here. So far I've seen the Leonard Riddle and Ronnie Eddins, Jimmy and Freddie Johnson, Harlen Wheatley, and Mark Brown interviews. Spending some time watching these is highly recommended.

Excellent site that I found a couple weeks ago when I saw it on here, amazing to hear from the people who had and still have such a big influence in the industry.

I guess I didn't use the correct search words but thanks for the link.

I agree that the discussion was relatively minor given the interviewees

and wealth of information. I'll have to check out the others now.

Thanks for the link!

The picture of Ronnie Eddins in the back of the latest Bourbon Review caught my eye this morning. Could anyone look happier?

I think when I was told about this a while ago I tried to convert it to audio to listen on my mp3 player, but to no avail.

Does anyone know if it's possible?

I would think it would be. Try a search for audio recorder at download.com

and perhaps you can find something. I know my wife has a program to record

youtube clips (but don't know the name of it offhand.) Would something like

that work for you?

Perhaps, I have a mac and I used to have a program called mp3-my-mp3 that recorded all sounds coming through the speakers, but haven't found anything related for Macs.

The entire Oral History series is very well done and brings the folks we hear so much about to life in a way the printed word cannot....

The Nunn Center and Buffalo trace have put together a 30 minute documentary from the oral history project that will air on KET in June.
