Tasting at Buffalo Trace.

We just tasted the five 2009 releases of the BT Antique Collection along with two new experimentals, all slated for October release. All awesome, although I might say stay away from the 1993 experimental. The experiments are double wood. After eight years in a new, charred barrel, they put them into another new charred barrel, one for another four years, the other for another eight years. The result of the experiment is that four years in a second barrel is pretty cool. Eight years is too much. Your mileage may vary.

Of the Antique, consensus is that the William LaRue Weller is the killer. Naturally, it's the one in shortest supply.
