    Great Article giving BT credit for beating the rest of the world in Murray's book.

    I think this is one of those cases where one knows "just enough to be dangerous."

    Buy hey, at least it is Sazerac, they didn't mess that part up!

    Crap! Here I thought that somehow three bottles of Saz 18 magically appeared in my bunker. Guess not. Joe

    This sort of thing happens within every subject matter I've ever been interested in And I imagine every subject matter I have no interest in.

    What is it with the general media, as apposed to periodicals devoted to specific subjects, that they so often muck things up?

    Re: What's wrong with this picture

    Did you know there's a magazine about "knowing just enough to be dangerous"? It's called Modern Jackass. I heard about this on an episode of This American Life now I refer to it nearly every day, usually because I catch myself talking about something I only know a little bit about.

    My favorite part of the story is the person who thought a quesadilla meant "What's the dealio?" in Spanish

    Funny, same thing here: http://blogs.laweekly.com/squidink/b...good-with-liq/

    Both sources are also reporting it as if it's a big deal that a Kentucky Bourbon beat Scotch when Murray has given Stagg the best whiskey title several times in the past.

    In fact, Murray's best whiskey has nearly always been either a Buffalo Trace or an Ardbeg.

    I like Jim and consider him a friend but, come on, it's one man's opinion.

    Re: What's wrong with this picture

    What I find amusing about this isin previous discussions Saz 18 has been talked about as going downhill prior to 2008 with the metal showing through.

    But hey, American Beer and American Whiskey........ taking over the world!

    I hope to get a bottle of that Amrut when I am in UK over the holidays. I have been wanting to try that for some time.

    I am a huge fan of Yamazaki and soon I must pick up a bottle of the recently available Hibiki.

    I think the scotch boys have reason to be a little concerned.

    I'm drinking some of the Saz 18 right now and while I generally prefer older whiskeys, I put the Handy 09 ahead of the Saz and both just below VWFRR.
