    So, single barrel bottlings are not really?

    According to this guy...they don't have to be.

    Who wants to buy his book?

    Re: So, single barrel bottlings are not really?

    Ha! Other singles, some truer than others, that might also confuse this guy:

    -Single hamburgers. Take a close look at the nutritional facts. Your single with cheese may contain up to 200 different patties.

    -Music singles - next time you buy a song on itunes listen closely, it could actually be the entire album. And if played in reverse may say 'Paul is Dead."

    -'Singles' dating websites - Half these people are married!

    -Beyonce's 'All the Single Ladies': 'All' implies more than one. 'Single' implies one (but as I have noted, often means otherwise). Very difficult to interpret, but proves my theorum that 'single' really means multiple.

    -The show 'My Two Dads' - They are both single dads. If you can have 2 single dads multiple barrels can in fact be a single barrel. You've been logic'd.

    For some reason his website background reminds me of this one.

    But yeah, sounds like he got "small batch" and "single barrel" confused. Doesn't really inspire confidence.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    I don't mind all the mistakes in this short review, but i can't abide his effeminate writing style

    Just proof that any idiot can write a book I bought another whiskey book that says that KC is from the same mashbill as Basil Hayden.

    just saw that 4Roses tweeted about this guy's post. I emailed them and told them to check their facts.

    First shot out of the box, he called bourbon barrels "casks". That's your first clue.

    Their social media guy is just that....not one of the industry folks. He needs some bourbon learnin'.

    I let them know yesterday with no response either.
