    Two Stars Bourbon??

    Anyone know anything about this one? It caught my eye at my local shop because of the bottle shape, same as all the weller offerings. A bit of digging and it appears to be a BT product. Comes in 1.75L and 750, pretty cheap, under $10 for a 750.

    You seem to have nailed it.

    Nothing says "quality" like 2 stars! Even Morningstar won't give a mutual fund anything less than 3 stars.

    Good one.

    Or, since it's a Buffalo Trace product, maybe it's 1/5 as good as their Ancient Age 10 Star.

    Their original label slogan was, "Hey, at least it's not one star..."

    It's probably a fair claim: 'just slightly better than awful.'

    That was my reaction. You gotta wonder how much bourbon they had been drinking at the marketing meeting where that one emerged as the best name. What could the other ideas have been?
