Say what you want about big business cutting corners and ruining things, they also have deep pockets and can get things done that smaller companies can't. Like bring dead distilleries back to life and add age statements (Bulleit10) when others are dropping theirs. GD no.12 is a great product, no reason that they can't make good bourbon here. But yes, its true, the proof is in the first taste which will hopefully not be before 2017.
