Weird -- here a handle is normally priced at what two 750s would be, so it's always a deal. Also, like you say, JW Black is great in cocktails. I primarily bought this for rusty nails and rob roys, but I'm sure I'm going to have it on its own too. Now that is an awesome idea. I'm actually waiting on some Hibiki now, so I may just slow things down until that arrives.
