I'm reminded of this excerpt from Sally Van Winkle's book, "But Always Fine Bourbon", telling one of Pappy's stories about his open vats in the distillery:

"Shucks, I told one woman that the best stuff I ever made years ago got that way after a cow fell in it." :D

As someone who enjoys a Glenfiddich now and again, I just hope the guy wasn't holding an open fifth of Michael Flynn New Age Spirit Whiskey...
