It's certainly more "by hand" than an automated bottling line. I would still consider a piece of furniture to be made by hand even if the carpenter used a level and a ruler.

    I did not notice if there was a scale involved. That's a statement of fact regarding my observation. I made no claim about whether or not there was one, just whether or not I saw it.

    That is the line on which van winkle bourbons are bottled.

    I think that pretty much covers what I wrote.
    Yeah, I know it "covers" what you wrote.

    Ah, the good old days ...

    For old-timers only:
    • Good Lord! Give BobbyC some!
    • Julian will correct me if I'm wrong, but I think...
    • Cat tails??? There are no cat tails in bourbon!
    • Personally I've always thought S-W bourbon was overrated.
    • _Mark_ my words, they won't be missed here.
    • Sure you have two jobs and a family, but we know you'll pass all the courses you need for certification.

    I don't know what you're implying by putting "covers" in quotes.

    He asked about bottling van winkle bourbons. I replied that I had been there, described what I had seen, and gave a link to the Web cam. It had nothing to do with you, your message, your expertise, or the bottling line at Heaven Hill.
