Not how they planned on rolling out the barrel for some sippin' as the structure collapsed while wooden barrels survived.

Bring your dippers, we have a flooded basement to empty. It's a man's work in front of us today.

Oh the Humanity!

 

Glad no one was hurt.  Riding out the collapse might have been survivable, having literally tons of barrels land on you not so much.

I am surprised ... looking at pictures of Carrie Nation ... that she was against alcohol. 

It looks like a whiskey goggles are the only way she would've gotten a man's attention.

She died in 1911 ... I don't think my opinion matters to her.

Barton Distillery.  Does anyone know that brand?  Do they sell that Bourbon under some other name?

I got that much, Fin.  I've never seen a bottle of 1792 ... might be worth a try.

What I was trying to ask, has anyone tried it.

 

Before I go looking for retailers ... is it good enough to bother?
