    Please, dear god tell me that you didn't find the ORVW 15 in Louisville. I would have to be seriously depressed.

    Welcome to the board from Louisville, KY!

    Thanks man, and likewise if you are ever in Louisville.

    Definitely not here! I'm thankful most of my relatives live out of town, because it seems like you can find some things easier when you go outside of Kentucky. They get picked over quicker here.

    Thanks for welcoming me as well. Here's hoping you're a Cards fan.

    If you do the math here is what you get (and I am being conservative):

    50 gallon barrel with 50% Angel share that leaves 25 gallons. If you get nominal proof increase (as most do in KY) you would have that 25 gallons at 135 proof (although one blog I read said the 2000 barrels were closer to 140). Dilute that to 86.6 proof by adding about 14 gallons. You end up with 39 gallons of whiskey. Multiply that by 5 and you end up with 195 bottles.

    So with about 200 bottles (probably many more) coming out of a barrel, it is not too much of a stretch to imagine it made it into multiple states. Now if this barrel 16 keeps turning up across the country then I would be more sucpicious.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.
