Whiskey enthusiasts are beginning to hoard bourbon.  Since news of a bourbon shortage broke a couple of weeks ago sales of the whiskey have shot up.  The "Wall Street Journal" says domestic sales are up 36-percent since 2009 and international exports are up 50-percent since 2010.  The "Journal" says a man in Virginia has a bunker with at least 700 bottles in it.  The "Business Insider" reports that big market whiskeys like Jack Daniels and Jim Beam will still be plentiful, but older and small-batch whiskeys are starting to disappear as hoarding ensues.  As the "Wall Street Journal" puts it, "panic has gripped bourbon enthusiasts across the country, and they are amassing stockpiles of it."
