    Kevin,

    What a great milestone for BT. I couldn't think of anyone better to roll out this next important barrel.

    Sorry to say I won't be there for the festivities.....toast one for me!

    Re: Roll Out the (6 Millionth!) Barrel

    I just wonder how many of those barrels could be accounted for by the denizens of Staright Bourbon.com. I would venture to say that although not even close to 6 million, we have had our share.

    I wonder how quickly we can spur it on to 7 million?

    In the words of Herman Munster, "DARN, DARN, DARN, DARN DARN!!"

    I'll be en route to NYC for the next few days.

    I hate to miss stuff like this.

    Freddy's is BT best, and best-known, tour guide. It was Freddy to told some of us a couple of years ago about the 'single-tree' barrel among BT's experiments, recently 'announced' by Mark Brown. I believe we were gathered that day, too, to select a barrel or three.

    Chris from BT mentioned this when we were there just after the Sampler. It'd be a great event to attend.

    If anyone goes, please post a photo or two

    Color me jealous. That's ok, I'll raise a toast of BT's finest to #6 million.
