    An additional requirement is that the whiskey all be produced "by the same distiller at the same distillery." That always has struck me as strange, as if he kicked the bucket during the season, it would preclude all of the whiskey being bonded. Maybe they could bottle separate bonded batches
    Many "distillers" had whiskey made for them at other "distilleries" in a D.B.A. format. They could not mingle such whiskey with other barrels produced on their own premises (even though from the same distilling season) and call it B.I.B.

    That's exactly what they would do in that event.

    Essentially, what bonded whiskey offers to the modern enthusiast is what I call "single batch bourbon." Ordinary straight bourbon can contain bourbon from different distilleries and of different ages. Single batch bourbon, like single barrel bourbon, reduces the distiller's options for improving a batch after it has aged. As such, it is a purer representation of the distiller's efforts.
