    Well, I do know half of them have restraining orders on me, because they (especially Mr. Beam) tired of me hugging them every time I saw them.

    You're on the right path, Thad. Different authors.

    Re: What do these guys have in common?

    Well, I gave y'all the weekend. While reading the Regan's book, "The Book of Bourbon and Other Fine American Whiskeys", I noticed a pattern in certain information contained in Chapter 5. This chapter was "Distilleries: An A to Z Guide to American Whiskey-Makers", where they wrote up a short description of each distillery. It contained info like Address, directions, whiskey brands produced, mashbills, master distiller, and....and...

    How does each Master Distiller drink his whiskey?

    Well according to the Regan's book, all of these guys drink their whiskey "on the rocks", and some will add water. Only Jimmy Russell responded that he drink his "neat, OR on the rocks". Considering the lengths that I read some folks here go in preparation of drinking their whiskey, I was mildly amused at the simplistic, and, I guess according to many presumptuous "armchair experts", the non-"connoisseurish" way in which they enjoy the fruits of their own creations.

    Very interesting, Joe. I'll bring a 20 lb. bag to the next GBS meeting. We can all drink Pappy on the rocks while watching Jimmy conduct his Michael Flynn pyro show!
