    Re: How much does a barrel of whiskey cost?

    Just to point out: Even if you were to go elsewhere to buy a whole barrel, you'd still have to buy it in a store, as liquor has to go through the three tier system. A distillery can't sell to an...

    Re: Is this true?

    Not, me. I'll happily mix your Manhatten, Sazerac, Old Fashioned or Highball for you, though there's usually no Coke, but I'll pour you one if it's in the house. My house, my pour, my choice of...

    The point was that those whiskies from that one area may have all dropped in proof, so your "Master Distillers mingle barrels from upper and lower floors/racks/ricks and the resulting whiskey will be...

    Of course, not all batches of whiskey are mingled from multiple floors. Some batches would be from a single spot in the warehouse where the whiskey was put away for a specific reason, such as an...

    I'll admit that blanket statements make my skin crawl. But here's a list of bottling proofs for FR 40th that were barreled at 105-110 proof.

    151A 105 proof
    151B 100.4 proof
    151C 104.6 proof
