    Re: Barrel proof bourbon

    The Van Winkle Binny's version, refers to the bourbon coming from a single cask. So the bourbon industry uses the term cask as well.

    For the benifit of some of the newer folks, and we love having all of you on board with us, We've had a Discussion about this very thing. We vehemently opposed it then and pretty clearly state why.

    Re: Barrel proof bourbon

    I was just teasing you Bob. The idea of a cask is more an affectation of the "whisky" world rather than the "whiskey" world. Some folks are particularly sensitive to such issues.

    Consider "Alcohol By Volume" vs. "proof". If you want to start an active thread, then put forth the proposition that ABV is the superior mechanism.

    Re: Barrel proof bourbon

    Funny you say that Jim I was just about to write that I was sure you were tongue in cheek.

    Plus, isn't there The Classic Cask Company in Bardstown, KY? They bottle a line of pretty fair bourbons and ryes.

    I seem to recall the Thedford bourbon refers to itself as cask bourbon.

    Who said, "a rose by any other name is as sweet"? No pun intended.
