That story from Whiskey Advocate is actually a year old and there hasn't yet been any other news from Diageo as to their plans. More than likely, they will start up the distillery itself again, but there's no telling what they'll be distilling yet. I highly doubt Buffalo Trace is going to let the Van Winkle contact go that easily so the PVW will likely still come from BT and that recipe won't be going anywhere. Maybe Diageo will try their hands at a wheated recipe and see if there was something special about the warehouses there that gave a better tasting whiskey.

Today's pick ups. Nothing really rare, but some good ones I've tried recently. The Glenkinchie is a Distiller's Select from this year. The Pike Creek is a Canadian whiskey that's a lot like Angel's Envy.
