A magnum of wine is two quarts; a tappit-hen of wine or rum is a double magnum; a jeroboam of wine or rum is a double “tappit-hen”; and a rehoboam (q.v.) is a double jeroboam.
The French say of wine that makes you stupid, it is vin d'âne; if it makes you maudlin, it is vin de cerf (from the notion that deer weep); if quarrel-some, it is vin de lion; if talkative, it is vin de pie; if sick, it is vin de porc; if crafty, it is vin de renard; if rude, it is vin de singe.
