    Re: \"Single Barrel\" vs. \"Single Cask\"

    Kinda defeats the purpose of using decent ground beans in the first place, doncha think?
    Amen to that! Kind of like mixing Pappy with Coke!

    Re: \"Single Barrel\" vs. \"Single Cask\"

    CL,

    Don't forget to make that Diet Coke for maximum (minimum?) effect.

    One of my earliest contacts with good writing, the kind that grabs you by the scruff of the neck and makes you pay attention to something that never seemed to matter before, was an essay that contrasted American-style white bread with coarse, dark, heavy bread from the Old Country. I don't recall the author. If he isn't already dead, then seeing what we have become would probably do the trick.

    Yours truly,
    Dave Morefield

    Why stop there? Let's make it a Caffeine Free Diet Coke!

    Re: \"Single Barrel\" vs. \"Single Cask\"


    I'm reminded of a story from Starbucks' home territory. At the Bellevue Square Mall, the most ordered coffee drink is reportedly a "Double Decaf Latte, with Skim Milk, and Equal."

    That reminds me of those old "Where's the beef?" commercials. Except this would be "Where's the coffee?".

    Re: \"Single Barrel\" vs. \"Single Cask\"

    I enjoy both American beer (but, never any kind of light beer) and full-flavored micro and Euro brews. Everything from Bud and Coors to Guinness, Bass Ale, and Pilsner Urqell. I prefer the full-flavored ones, but a cold Bud on a hot day is heavenly.

    I was buying a 12-pack of Bud a couple of weeks ago and a stranger in the store was kidding me about it. He said that, when he was in England, an American was in a bar trying to order a beer. He asked for "the closest thing you have to American beer". The barkeeper served him water. I assume that is apochryphal. Pretty funny, though. The guy pissed me off, but I ignored him.

    Re: \"Single Barrel\" vs. \"Single Cask\"

    With regard to Sam's being the only single barrel Buffalo Trace whiskey on the market, I am sure that is untrue. Anyone can purchase a barrel of almost any whiskey that Buffalo Trace produces and have it bottled for them. By definition that would be a single barrel.

    Anyone up for a group buy?

    Sure, of course we would need to do extensive tasting before picking the barrel!
