    Re: is barrel-finished bourbon a mistake?

    So is that widely available yet, or another Col. Chuck advance issue?

    Got a taste at the Bourbon Classic. (Tip, all of the producers have something under the table.) It will be out soon.

    Most likely for the bargain basement price of $150 or so considering where it is coming from. (The Angels ARE envious because the company doesn't age the whiskey long enough for the angels to get their share and also because even God himself wouldn't charge those prices for whiskey He distilled from the great column still in the sky.)

    "Jacob's Ladder" was a movie. "Jacob's Well" was a boubon. It was 'double-barreled,' which I think meant that they took a bunch of barrels, dumped a couple and used that whiskey to top off the rest. It saves warehouse space, not so sure it does anything for the whiskey.

    Hmmm,there is aNDP here in Indiana , Spring Mill is the brand name, and they tout their product as double barreled. Wondered if it made any difference or was more gimmick.

    When I initially heard the term double barreled my thought was what was wrong with the first one.

    You missed my point. Jacob's ladder was God's column still. [From a distiller's viewpoint]
