Fall is the big whiskey season when all the special release whiskeys come out, but because of the TTB label approval process, we get a preview of them in spring and summer. Here are some of what awaits us this fall (other than Zachory Boone):
- Four Roses Limited Edition Small Batch. Last years Four Roses Limited Edition Small Batch Bourbon was one of the best bourbons of the year. This year's will be composed of 18 year old OBSV, 13 year old OBSK and 13 year old OESK, the same recipes in last year's edition but at different ages.
- Woodford Reserve Master's Collection. It looks like this year's Woodford Master's Collection will be a repeat of the Woodford Rye Whiskey experiment of two years ago, except with barley malt. There will be a single malt whiskey aged in used barrels in the Scotch style and a straight malt with corn as a secondary grain aged in new charred oak in the American style.
- Masterson's. 35 Maple, the bottler of Masterson's Rye will be importing a 12 year old straight wheat whiskey and a ten year old straight barley whiskey from Canada.
- Redbreast 21. A 21 year old version of Redbreast Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey.
