    Re: jts brown

    This is as good a time as any to log this little nugget in. One of the Warehousemen at 4 Roses told me, and he should know, that it depends on the barrel how much is lost to the Angels. He said sometimes a barrel will go in with 53 gallons and come out with 52. Some barrels will lose along the lines credited to Elmer above. Here's the funny part, some will be empty, and they have found barrels that have completely collapsed in the rack. The main point was that there isn't a single answer, I guess once one deals with millions of barrels an average can be arrived at. Does it help to know that no matter what the loss is , we are paying for that too?

    Granted, my memory may be faulty -- I didn't have the presence of mind to snap a picture (I think I left the camera in the car, in fact) -- but I remember trying to do the math upon departure, and guessing it to be between 10 and 15 gallons left. And, I am not taking into account the shape of the barrel which, on its side, will be deeper in the middle. I should have been clearer -- the 8 or so inches I saw were visible in the transparent endpiece, and certainly was deeper in mid-barrel. Still, the barrel had more 'empty' in it than bourbon.

    The 20 year Sam's Club bottling appears to have been only 12 gallons.
    60 bottles at barrel proof and a single barrel.

    In light of those numbers, it seems all the more amazing that extra aged bourbon is being bothered with. Thanks Julian for leading the way there!

    FRANCE? I can understand the Japanese market and the prices it can fetch but selling this gem to those pompous socialistic surrender monkeys over appreciative loyal Americans, Canadians and Australians? MON DIEU!!!!!!! To borrow from Marie Antoinette, "Let them eat cake, but not wash it down with EW23!!!!!!!"

    Bettye Jo....I remember seeing those barrels but didn't say too much about them. Thought I might be saying something out of school. There were six of them as I recall. That doesn't make a lot of cases regardless of how full they are (were). Glad they made it into the 23 yo bottling. That night, someone said they might be destined for the EC 18yo.

    "Empty," that really hurts just thinking about it!

    Re: jts brown

    I just tried this last night. JTS Brown Bottled in Bond. 100 proof. D.S.P KY 31 UPC 96749 21130. This was good! I wasn't really expecting much from it but it was quite good. In all this discussion I didn't read many "impressions". I'm going to revisit this tonight and see if last night was a fluke. If not, I may have to pick up a few more of these.
