    so, foulness concentrated?
    Think about how stupid the average person is.....then realize that half of them are more stupid than that.

    Do we think the 100 proof is a placeholder, or is that what they're calling "barrel proof", since they can?

    If they pick the right barrels I bet they could release a 100 proof barrel proofer. I suspect it's just a placeholder, though.

    JDSB at 100 proof? Hmmmm. Unless the 100 proof on the label is there just to satisfy regulations, it kinda sounds like BF is bringing their JDSS to the domestic market with a different label.

    It's almost certainly a placeholder. Since it's SB, presumably, there would be different proofs for different barrels. You are allowed to change proof on a label without resubmitting a new label to the TTB so placeholders are common, especially on barrel proof offerings.

    Thanks Sku. "Placeholder" had eluded me at the time.

    Well whadaya know, this is a bit of a surprise. Not my cup of tea exactly but I'm glad it's being offered.
