    Since it's not straight bourbon, I'm going to guess that it's less than four years old.

    But then it would need an age statement.

    Just came across this one myself today. Bottle shape and label design reminded me of another oddball I found about a year ago called "Paddleford Creek", wonder if they might be related?

    If Cooper's Mark is a Beam Global product, then there will be no Maker's Mark lawsuit, as MM is now owned by Beam. I wonder if "Fast Forward Brands" is a Beam dba.

    If it's not straight, then it doesn't need an age statement if under 4 y/o.

    Thumbs down Re: Cooper's Mark

    I bought a bottle of Cooper's Mark, thinking that with the price tag of almost $30 and labeled as small batch, it would be a decent bottle of Bourbon. Boy was I wrong! This swill reminds me of one of those nondescript cheap whiskeys you find in a plastic 1.75 liter bottle that costs less than $10. I'm not even that picky a drinker. I like all sorts of whiskeys, including rye, scotch, bourbon, and liqueurs that others consider undrinkable, such as Liquore Strega and Fernet Branca. This however, I would not feed to my dog! I am too cheap to just throw it down the drain, so I will try to find alternate uses for it, such as floor cleaner, furniture stripper, or some other use. Please email me with your suggestions.
