Just enough for the next Fark party.

Why would you put that much in a single glass bottle? Seems stupid.

The largest increment I know of is Melchizedec ou Midas (36 standard bottles, I think). What the hell do we call this other than A Lost Weekend?

I'm seriously embarrassed by that and can no longer show my face in Scotland which is kinda hard given that I grew up there and still have family there. My excuse is that it was from an Irish site but that doesn't really hold water given that they wrote "whisky" in the headline and throughout the article.

Ripoff.

You can buy bourbon by the barrel for a lot less than that.

A barrel of Makers Private Select is $13k. The regular stuff is only ~$8k / barrel. Sure, you'd need to buy two of them to match that bottle, but you'd have a heck of a lot left over for the hookers and blow.

Diet coke in 32 year old Scotch?
[Fark user image image 850x472]


I had a business dinner with a guy in New York. He had several Johnny Walker Blue with Dr Pepper. It was on our dime, of course. Farkin idiot. Joey D - old Italian guy.  He pretended he was old school mafia. He kept referring to his business as "The Firm". Fortunately, I was not the senior guy so I didn't have to put up with his bullshiat. I just sat back and laughed

I'd aliquot into cardboard milk containers and share with all of you.
maybe ziplock bags, I don't know how much money and time I'll spend on this project.

It seems like 90% of Italian Americans I meet try to act like mobsters. Ironically, 0% of the Italians I've met from Italy act that way.

This is the same vintage as these bottles.
it's worth about 25k per 750ml a little more than makers mark which is kinda meh to begin with.

Hey don't look at me. I picked the wrong decade to quit drinking. I'd keep the cash and just buy a year's supply of Dr. Pepper.

Build a frame to hold the bottle upside down and affix a spigot to its neck, and Bob is your uncle

Especially 32-year-old whiskey.

A tiny flaw in the glass, and you've wasted a lot of time and money.

Drain it into 750ml bottles and sell them in Japan.

Profit!
