Let's Have a Q&A - Part 3

Welcome to what is becoming a thing... if you missed the first Q&A or the second Q&A, click on the links to enjoy. As always, the submitted questions will have a name with them. General questions will not. 

Mark (me (right)) with the best co-worker in the world (Miss Fiona (left))

Q. Mark R. (me) wonders... 'Traffic is way down... what the heck?!?'

A. That's a great question. As you may have seen in the monthly reviews, traffic is down around 30% or more on a month-to-month basis and stabilized around 14,000-20,000 pageviews a month. It's encouraging that there are over 200+ people signed up for the emails that are sent by blogger anytime an article is posted and there are 18 people following on blogger, which is pretty cool. I don't make any money on this site as it's strictly a hobby, so while I'm disappointed that the numbers are dropping, it's not a huge deal... having said that.... tell a friend about the site! 

Q. Maryann writes in on August 13th asking.... 'do you offer shipping to mass for the new bourbon specials if not do you know where i can find it. My fiance is a makers mark bourbon guy and trying to get him some . thank you'

A. Well Maryann... I have bad news... unfortunately, I don't ship to Massachusetts. I also question how you're having trouble finding Maker's Mark, but that's a different can of worms... 

Q. Jim Z. writes in on Sept 19th asking 'Do you have 2 bottles of Colonel EH Taylor bottled in bond available for sale?

A. It's nice to see people emailing asking for something other than Blanton's... First of all, all Colonel EH Taylor has multiple bottled-in-bond variations so I'm not sure which one you're referring to (Small Batch, Single Barrel, Straight Rye, etc. are all bottled-in-bond). Second, I don't sell alcohol. 

Q. Chris C. writes in 'Subject: Mash & Drum contact
Mark,  We are working on a whiskey accessory product that we would like
to involve Jason C with some type of royalty arrangement.    I have been
unable to find his e-mail address so we can send a proposal.

Do you have any contact info for him?


A. I had to google what mash & drum is and from what I gather, it is a Youtube channel with over 55k followers from right here in Columbus, Ohio. Seems pretty legit and maybe worth checking out. Sadly, I don't have Jason C's email so I can't help. 

Q. Dexter A. writes.... 'i would like to purchase 2 bottles please'

A. Dexter, thanks for the note. Please venmo any money to @mark-roehl2. I will send you empties once I finish them. 

Q. Friend of the blog, Ally asks 'What are you drinking lately'?

A. Mostly Woodford. That is my go-to most of the time. It's been fun this month as The Duchess of Powell (my wife) has decorated for Halloween and has a really cool skull decanter that she filled with Woodford. Definitely makes it fun to pour out of that each time. 

Q. Barbara writes in to ask... 'I'm interested in knowing more about your establishment. My husband is a huge bourbon fan. I'm thinking this membership might be a perfect gift for him. Are you only in Ohio, we live in Ohio as well as S.C.'

A. Sadly, I'm only in Ohio at this time with no plans to expand to S.C.. As for the membership, as a special gift for Barbara, I'm waiving all membership fees for everyone and will continue to publish a handful of articles every week. Consider it an early Christmas miracle. 

As always, thank you to all my readers... even the ones who don't bother to read anything before emailing in!
