"A man comes from the dust and in the dust he will end-- In the meantime it is good to drink whiskey."
Nice. Even with the 90 proofers, we could probably make an educated guess based on the known entry proof and the percentage of loss, though I suppose we can't assume that a given rate of loss would equal a constant rise in proof... yet again, more math than I'm willing to attempt.
I guess "give 'em the bird" isn't just a marketing slogan, it's a brand management strategy, too.
2012 Stagg: 14,481 bottles ((118 barrels x 53 gallons)x (1-0.5369 for evaporation loss) x 5 for # of bottles per gallon
2012 WLW: 5,634 bottles. 0.566 for evaporation
2012 Handy: 8,689 bottles. 0.3023 for evaporation
750 ml is not a fifth of a gallon. It's close, but over that many gallons it makes a difference.
Passed up a PHC 6 batch 2 today

Jefferson's Straight Rye Whiskey had to be left behind when I went on my latest whiskey run yesterday. Maybe next time.

Left 4 bottles of THR in Baltimore on sale for $59 made it hard to do but luggage was near the legal limit. Bought 3 plus a GTS. Shipped the GTS and carried the Rye's in my luggage.
