    Strong is just another bulk bourbon packager and bottler, obviously not a distillery. The guy behind it is Michael Kanbar, whose last big idea was a canned champagne called Floot. His uncle is Maurice Kanbar, founder of SKYY vodka.

    I'll take a stand

    I bet the product disappears before the kick-ass website is up.

    Isn't 80 proof the lowest allowable legal proofing for a bourbon?

    In other words - if it was 79 Strong - then it couldn't be called a bourbon?

    I don't know the "exact address" of those warehouses but they are located on that road

    So do you think that this may be watered down JB?

    I just saw that stuff today. I'd never seen it before, so I examined the bottle. Nice label, with I believe a screw cap. LIke Brian, I never considered buying it because of the proof. It's from Bardstown - Heaven Hill or Bartons?

    I picked up a bottle of Woodford Reserve instead.

    And would you believe it's actually quite nice! Leslie buys them once and a while when she might want a glass without opening a whole bottle. Nothing like sipping sparkling wine through a straw

    Jeff.....The Sophia in either can or bottle is quite drinkable. When we stay at Coppola's resorts in Central America, thats Val's favorite drink at the bar. The first time I saw it, I laughed, but they did pour it into a champagne flute for her. BTW, when you stay at his places, its Coppola wines ......or Coppola wines in the bar and dining room. Highly recommended if traveling to Belize or Guatemala.

    Well...Well...all of us know that there's no "New Distillery" called 80 Strong...that's a assumed "gimme" Somtimes, I forget that alot of folks are new to this stuff.

    Peter Pogue told me that 1010 Withrow Court is a place called Warehouse Support Center owned by Jeff Tapman...Many people store extra bottles there.

    Guess I'm gonna havta drive down there to see what else in on that road...There's a barrel place on that road too Bardstown Barrels Inc. 1050 Withrow Court...
