    Cooper's Mark

    I am in Jacksonville, FL for a convention.
    Today I had some time to get away and find a liquor store.
    And I found Cooper's Mark bourbon whiskey.
    I could not find anything online, the label said charcoal filtered.
    Not sure how they can call it bourbon.
    It is very light in color, and for $25 I bought a bottle to take home.
    Anyone ever see this stuff?

    Looks like you linked the album around you [img] tags, not the URL for the image itself

    Never heard of it. What info is on the bottle as to the producer?

    Why don't you think it's bourbon?

    I think it is bottled by Fast Forward Brands in Colorado.

    Just about all bourbon is charcoal filtered.

    Filtering is different from "mellowing" (like JD) as I understand. Granted, I can't imagine why they would advertise it. That's where my knowledge ends.

    I have several bottles of Beams Choice that say the same thing.

    Boy, I tell ya'....there's just enough similarities on there ("Mark", font used in the name, prominent star, red coloring, color of label, "torn" look to the bottom of the label, etc,) that I'm sure that every trigger finger in Maker's legal team was twitching. .

    Not only does the label say "Charcoal Filtered" and "Small Batch," but it also says "Extra Smooth." What, did they forget to say "Sour Mash?"
