Thought some of you would find this interesting. Iowa is looking at proposals for the regulation or ban of Everclear. A college student almost died this fall by chugging Everclear. Iowa already banned 190 proof Everclear so we are talking about the 151.
Although I don't buy it and it doesn't affect me personally, I think it is reactionary and ridiculous. Everclear has valid, non alcohol-poisoning-inducing uses. You can use it to make limoncella and other similar drinks. Of course it is the most abused alcohol by young people but if you take it away something else will fill that void.
My bourbon-related fear is that they will pass some over-broad regulation or ban that will affect high proof bourbons. I don't think people buying Bookers for $50 or Stagg for $70 are the problem. If they did anything that affected WT101 or WTRB I would lose it. I doubt that happens though.
