Moonshine in a jar is typically only 50% alcohol (100 proof). This is both for ease of measurement (your average still monkey ain't all that bright) and reducing loss (not strong enough to evaporate rapidly before being sold).

If you only drink every six months but spent that much time putting that entire display together, you spend waaaaay too much time decorating.

No offense.

They just need it high enough to burn clean for the spoon test rubes.

Who doesn't keep rubbing alcohol around? It's freakin' useful stuff, and cheap.

I'll save my drinking alcohol for drinking, thankyouverymuch.

/like that fresh bottle of The Balvenie Doublewood 12 year sitting over there...

Used to drink more like weekly.  Same deal though, wanted to be able to drink whatever I wanted to drink when the moment arose.

Some of those bottles have been in there for a very long time.  The Jim Beam in the back is itself old enough to drink.

Pogo's from Georgia, not West Virginia, but his point still stands.

Well, subby, then at least it's good for something, because it sure ain't any good for drinking. I've had two bottles of the stuff in my bar for like 17 years. It's just so bad.
