The bourbon list is, well...
Wow, Parker's Heritage is made by Beam...and here I thought it was made by Heaven Hill.
Guess they've never heard of old grand dad. But for 500 bucks you will get access to the "bourbon experts"
What an absolute joke! It's embarrassing that something so amateurish is out there at all!
The classy graphic design just screams quality.
I love their defense of Jack Daniels - first page I read on the site which just screams "Look at me! I have a computer and a dangerously reckless lack of knowledge!" Not sure who this Chef Matthews is, but he should feel a proper dose of shame.
Now, now guys. Let's not go all Parker on the writer, editor, chef. I think he's onto the greatest thing since the Little Orphan Annie secret decoder ring. Any of you SBers with "real world bourbon experience" plus $50 for the book, $25 for the guidelines, and $225 for the test can then hang our your shingle to practice bourbonology. Somebody's going to pay it. Somebody always pays it.
Option B is to spend the $300 on bourbon and become self-taught and self-certified.
Option C: After you have consumed $300 of bourbon, send me $10 and I'll print you an ornate Gothic-lettered certificate, suitable for framing, that authorizes you to practice bourbonology in The Great State of Inebriation. (Or Commonwealth if you prefer.)
