Take a look at the picture attached. There are five bourbons. They are placed in order, based on several different criteria. How many of these orders can you identify?

Proof (80, 86, 90, 90, 90.4)
Amount left of original fill (Jack full to Woodford nearly empty)
Retail Price (depending on where you live of course)

So far, so good. There are more, though.

Just guessing, nothing more:

Yearly sales volume?

Length of time on the market?

Percentage of rye in the mashbill?

I don't know how to say this. It's Math :o But anywho, the overall pattern or "trend" in height of the bottles is increasing. I would expect the "6th" bottle to be taller than bottle 4. Hey Josh, how bout helpin' a brother out here with this math stuff!! :D

How 'bout:

In proof order
In order by per cent gone from bottle
In order by date entered into the market
In pyramid order by manufacturer (BF, JB, BT,BT, BF) ... parent
companies all have "B" as an initial, too
In alternating but increasing order by height
In pyramid order by age
In pyramid order by cost per 750 ml
In inverse pyramid order by annual US sales volumes

I considered this one, but I' pretty sure (without actually bothering to look it up) that Eagle Rare predates Elmer T Lee as a Brand, however is you want to say that Elmer T Lee Single Barrel predates Eagle Rare SB, then I'm gonna say if you want to get that picky, Jim Beam Black 8yo/86 proof is the newest of the bunch.:grin:

Try a few more potentials ...

In pyramid order of rye content of mash bill (low to high to low)

In pyramid order of darkness of final product color (light to dark to lighter)

In order from south to north of principal distilling location (Lynchburg, Clermont, Frankfort, Frankfort, Louisville) ... or is it sigmoidal order from east to west to east to west ???

In pyramid order of principal bottling location (south to north to south) ... (Lynchburg, Clermont, Frankfort, Frankfort, Woodford county) ... or is it pyramid order from east to west to east ???

They've all had a recent master distiller change.
