I got a kick out of this. An email arrived today touting a web site called happyhours.com. One story it featured caught my eye: The 12 Most Unforgettable Bourbons by Robert Plotkin
Robert Plotkin is president of the National Bar & Restaurant Management Association and the author of numerous books including Successful Beverage Management-Proven Strategies for the On-Premise Operator.
His picks? It's not a bad list. Hirsch, Elijah Craig 18-year-old, Distiller's Masterpiece, but also Gentleman Jack, Maker's Mark and the one that makes you wonder if he actually tasted any of the products on the list, McKendric.
Anyway, take a look at the full story. It's worth a comment or two, I think.
