    More or less. Saw the rheumatologist today and it looks like some form of inflammatory arthritis. Good thing I don't use my hands for blogging or being a stay-at-home dad.

    Bummer. Probably can't treat it with bourbon either.

    Have you tried speech recognition software?

    PROBLEMS/QUESTIONS: Regan & Regan list an approximate mashbill for all the bourbons made at "Ancient Age Distillery" as 80/10/10. That can't be right, but which mashbill does that represent, #1 or #2?

    Also, a mashbill of 75/20/5 is listed for Old Fitz, Weller and Rebel Yell while at Bernheim. What is the current mashbill?

    I have it on pretty good authority that Virginia Gentleman IS still being produced and sold, never went out of production. "the Fox" 90 proof is no longer bottled but there are several fine bourbons under theASB label, Bowman brothers small batch (90 proof), John Bowman single barrel (100 proof) and Abraham Bowman (limited/special releases)

    Seeing how your the new Master Distiller at ASB maybe you could do something about bringing the Fox back.

    I'll second that request. I am enjoying the Bowman Rye and looking forward to trying the others that TPS has brought in.
