    Worst Whiskey Article Ever? We Have A Winner.

    Thanks (I think) to Michael New for pointing this out to me. Doubly bad considering the premise of the article. And, yes, it's fun-bad too.

    The sad part is, there will be people that take it to heart and use the "knowledge".

    Re: Worst Whiskey Article Ever? We Have A Winner.

    I wonder if this was written by someone in the know as a joke to see how many Wall St types they can get talking "Angels Tax" (a term I've never heard before). And isn't it barley rather than hops that is part of the mashbill?

    I have only heard of micros using hops.

    So much wrong it's hard to know where to start. The idea that Scotch whisky didn't exist before Union could be one.

    Re: Worst Whiskey Article Ever? We Have A Winner.

    Why is it that people that don't know anything allways seem to want to talk about JD or Scotch? I don't understand how the whole cycle of the waste corn pulp goes from the dairy farm to the distillery then back to the farm. I didn't know an aroma could freeze either. It seems like the whole article was badly translated from another language

    Not only are hops not part of a typical distiller's beer... if hops can be used to propagate yeast, I wasted $7.50 on the vial of yeast that went into my last homebrew. I can't even begin to guess where this writer got this information, it's not even correct when it comes to beer.

    Interesting. Bourbon must be distilled in Bourbon, KY. Interesting....
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.
