Let everyone post their most intriguing Purim Shailos.
I will start:
If you never drink wine all year long, can you be yotze your chiyuv of “ad delo yoda” with Whiskey stored in Sherry Casks?
There is no Mitzvah with Whiskey. Every. And I’m not sure what one has to do with the other.
Sam, who says there’s no mitzvah with whiskey?
The mitzva of whiskey is this derink till you cant tell between 8 year and 12 year scotch
I almost got to the point between not telling between dry wine and semi dry but not quite.
How sober to daven native? Edit Massive. maariv. silly autocorrevt.
DY: The Poskim discuss whether or not you can be Mashlim with other alcoholic beverages. Almost all say no, from what I recall. Also, you are clearly too drunk to Daven Maariv at the moment.
You missed the point. Sherry Casks are barrels that used to contain wine. Whiskey makers tayna that it adds to the taste of the whiskey. So you are getting a little wine in your whiskey. A vi veit there is wine in the whiskey and you don’t drink wine the rest of the year, then you are mikayim the minimum according to the Rama if you have have a little more wine then usual and reacdh ad delo yoda.
So you have the little bit of wine and reach ad delo yoda using whiskey.
The joke (and yes this ruins it) is that there is a machlokes haposkim about using sherry casks because of yayin nesech.
Ben: You missed the point that the joke is a Stirah. If the sherry casks matter, then it’s Assur. So Mimah Nafshach it doesn’t work.
I tjogjt that was Benny’s joke.o
That was my joke.
Can you be yotzi mishloach manos and matanos lievyonim by sending two foods to two aniym?
