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

    I think this is probably going to a cognac term "angel's share" which indicates the part of the cognac that evaporates during aging (usually about 2% per year). Still agree that it is a dumb article.

    Correct - the term "angel's share" is also widely used when speaking about bourbon (or whiskey in general) that evaporates. But "tax" is never something I've heard anyone say until this goofy article
