The unofficial motto of the VA ABC must be "If it ain't fer sale - Then it ain't worth buyin'!".
Yeah, right! As you look at a forty dollar bottle of Theadford on the top shelf.

Four Roses makes that mash bill using five different yeasts, as it does the other one, so I don't know exactly how many different whiskies there are in the Bulleit mix. The single barrel, of course, is by its nature one mash bill and one yeast, but I think it's the conventional bourbon mash bill that's used for SB, not the high rye one, though I'm not positive.
The SB is superb, by the way.

cowdery wrote:The problem at this point is mainly one of supply, in part because so much of the distillery's output is going to Diageo. Both the standard yellow label and the new SB are available pretty readily in Kentucky and perhaps in some adjoining states. If you are familiar with Four Roses from overseas travel, it is only the yellow label and the SB that are available here and the USA SB is different from the one sold internationally. Different proof, different bottle and different whiskey.
