    but if you were a rock star?

    value of anything is what you want and what it means. I don't mind dropping $100 at the drop of a hat to try something I've an interest in. There's whiskeys out there I'd give $300 for, and only blink once. Now if I had the income of a rock star, I wouldn't blink to give $1000 for that same bottle.

    If I were a rock star they would be giving me whisky for my endorsement.

    I thought rock stars pretty much just drank Jack Black?

    They drink tea out of a Jack bottle, it's all show biz.

    there are LOTS of rock/pop stars who drink/drank the regular stuff. Kid Rock, Frank Sinatra, Haggard, Hank and Hank Jr, etc

    every one of those guys had enough money to drink whatever they wanted.

    I like to think I'd still have sense if I had a buttload of money, but who knows. I would never 'collect' whiskey, but I may extend my price limit upward a small bit. I would have one hell of a Mopar collection though....both whiskey and musclecars are for enjoying, not looking at.


    Actually, I think I'd just buy a barrel of Dickel at about 10 years old and barrel proof and invite everyone over.

    No seriously, I remember watching some other show too where they were talking about slamming Jack Daniels. Their comment was that they were instantaneously insanely drunk.

    That just makes a lot of sense. Would probably even be cheaper then 1 bottle of Mitchers.

    I have never heard that. I wonder if it's better then the vodka enema.
