This is my first post, and I thought I'd start with a question.
In looking at the "single barrel purchase" thread, I was left with the question of how much a barrel of whiskey costs. I took a look at the cost threads, but didn't see what I was looking for. I understand (not really) the tax costs, but I'm wondering what the wholesale cost of a barrel would be before taxes. I imagine it depends on the age of the barrel and on the size of the distillery (for economies of scale). I would guess there is quite a jump in price after a certain age, and perhaps several big jumps along the way. In one post, I saw a figure of $8000 mentioned for the project, but that was probably for a rare barrel and probably included bottling and transportation as well as taxes.
Also, is the single barrel project still going?
