    I guess alcohol content varies by country and market. In Japan the four roses highball can was 7%; now that's for an 80 proofer. The ironic thing about a bonded product in an RTD is that to maintain a 7% alcohol content ceiling, there will be actually less whiskey used! (Or so I gather with my crude mathematical skills.)

    Re: What is/are your favorite BIB('s)

    Outside the U.S., 'bonded' is just a word. Unless it has some legal meaning in the local jurisdiction. There's no reason to assume they used a BIB as the source rather than something else. It's not like they're using bottled whiskey to make these things. They're starting with bulk whiskey at barrel proof.
