The day I was there, they were really doing a bottling push on Eagle Rare & Blanton - the Blanton was going to Japan (big seller there) & I think the ER was going to Australia... ER is selling like crazy I guess. The bottling hall smelled amazing! They still fill/label by hand.
BTW: I got to see several different barrels of the Experimental Collection resting in the warehouse - very interesting -they were the small barrels. I highly recommend the "Hard Hat" tour -really get to see a lot & the guide was excellent.
Thanks for the Hard Hat tip...from a Pappy drinker in waiting. By the way, can any bourbon enthusiasts confirm/deny that Jefferson's Presidential Select 17 & 18 (from the Stitzel Weller stock distilled in Fall 1991) is the same mashbill as Pappy Van Winkle 15 & 20? Thanks for any info that can be provided.
no expert here...but I think all Stitzel-Weller was 75/20/5. so, the Pappy 20/23 and Jeffersons 17/18 would have that mashbill. the origin of the current 15 is unclear (as I'm sure you know)....
