Since K&L wont turn on comments, I have to pound my head on the keyboard here. The veterans of this board have long noted that inexpensive doesnt always mean low quality. In fact we know quite a few bourbons and whiskies that are great but dont break the bank. Looks like some others are catching on now too (http://spiritsjournal.klwines.com/kl...-to-drink.html ).
My consolation is K&L's blog is read mostly by those who already know these facts; pretty much preaching to the choir, thank goodness. I hope to never see the day when my everyday whiskies start exploding in price like we see with Scotch.
