    Do Reviewers Get Funny Barrels?

    Fact - distillers send reviewers/bloggers free samples or bottles of their products for evaluation purposes.

    So the poll is simple yes or no. Do you think on single barrel offerings the producers select what bottles get sent out and pick whiskey that is funnier than the standard profile for that brand?

    Vote yes if you think this has happened or No if you think this has never happened.

    No... because at least some reviewers are ego-centric and have at some times a barely decernible sense of humor.

    Chuck, it's not whiskey but can I offer you a sample of Rumble Lite? It's close to the Rumble profile, but instead of distilling a spirit from sugar, honey and figs we substituted Splenda for the sugar. It's not available in the retail release, but it tastes close enough.

    My understanding is that the hands-down funniest, silliest and goofiest bottles all go to BarrelChar.

    Like the way you tell a story. You know, funny.

    Remember, all, this whiskey thing is supposed to be fun. If you're not having fun, you're doing it wrong.
