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

    It doesn't surprise me that some writer got all of their "facts" wrong, what bother's me is that the editors of a business magazine let the article say that whiskey is taxed more than people are. This isn't even an accurate business fact. Whiskey does not pay taxes. We pay it when we buy the bottle.

    Maybe even more disturbing is the fact that the author graduated from Columbia and writes at a high school level.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    I guess Bourbon Heritage Month is also Bourbon Misinformation Month, hence this piece of crap just received from Wild Turkey's PR agency. I've already reprimanded them.

    To be fair, they didn't get that wrong. "Now it's not a requirement that Bourbon be distilled in Bourbon county"


    I agree that it's a terrible article. I hate these slideshow things to begin with, but this one took it to a new level with the misinformation, bad grammar, and sloppy diction.

    Wow, classically bad. Why does everyone think Bourbon County is dry?

    Gotta guess that people think that because Lynchburg, TN is dry and they've just adapted that to Bourbon County.

    I almost missed it too. It is linked to the word "here" in Chuck's original post.

    wow. Anything that uses ADI for a source on anything is got to be bad anyway. Lot of distillers do use hopped yeast mashes.
