    1 year till prohibition, what would you stockpile?

    I recently started reading Daniel Okrent's book on prohibition 'Last Call' and the question of what I would do if I knew in a year that the sale/manufacturing of alcohol would be illegal popped in my head. I know some of us bunker for various reason; fear of price change, dropped age statement, lowered proof or just because it's damn good hooch. But what if you knew a year from now it would all be gone(scary thought), what would bunker? Would you stockpile your favorite brands or get as much variety as possible?

    For me personally I would get my hands on as much OWA, Weller 12, ETL, and Ritt BIB as I could afford.
    I've got more whiskey than I need but not nearly as much as I'd like

    I would just move into Hectic's basement and ride it out until repeal.

    Actually we could dig a tunnel from my house to yours and be set for a good while!

    I would buy as many barrels of FR OBSV, OESO, and OBSK as Jim R would bottle for me!
    You can find me in chat most nights on days ending with the letter y!

    I'm with Hectic, by the barrel is the way to go.

    Plus, there would be somethign uniquely satisfying to see the cases stacked on a pallet, or two, in my basement.

    I think there was a photo of this with somebody that did handles of Jack???

    Makes me want to break out in a chorus of "Roll out the Barrel".

    As many cases of Rittenhouse and BT as I can buy. The 2 staples of my bar, amazing value, and the best-of-breed for the all important "under $30/bottle" price point. Done and done.
