Buy Jack Daniel’s by the Barrel at Sam’s Club and Costco [PHOTO]
Can you ever have too much whiskey? When a pint, fifth, or even a half gallon isn't enough, just roll in an entire barrel of Jack Daniel's to your next party!
A Reddit user posted a picture from his local Sam's Club showing off a whole barrel of Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Select for sale. In response, another user posted a picture from Costco showing the same item, for more than $1,000 less.
I'm not sure what states these are from, but I have only been in one Sam's Club in my lifetime and I have never seen this item in any Costco before. Not that I have $10,000 to blow on a barrel of whiskey anyway, but...I started searching the Internet for "full Jack Daniel's barrels" to see if those warehouse stores actually had these in stock.
As I was scouring the interwebs, I came across this on JackDaniels.com:

Forget Costco and that Walmart knock off, I want to go to Tennessee, do some tasting, and pick out my own barrel! Until I can save a few grand to blow on booze, a measly half gallon will have to do.
