Seth, if you want the best of any brand of whiskey get a bottle of their "single barrel".

Whiskey is generally produced in batches where all the barrels are blended together in one big vat after aging. Some barrels will be better than others, but it all averages out to be pretty good (hopefully).

Single barrel is hand selected whiskey that has developed an above average taste during aging, it stands on its own. The best of the best.
