    Glad to hear you're enjoying it. Must be those sharp pot still notes mixed with dirty barley distillate that really set it off

    I'm friends with a few Texas Ex-Pats here in WV, and I brought the Single Malt and Brimstone to a Texas Independence Day party in March. Neither bottle survived the night.

    I have high hopes for you little guys.
    Awesome! What state are you in? WA? CA?

    WA. I've had your whisky @ Canon, Liberty, etc., here in the Seattle area. They're probably older batches so I'm going to ask for the bottle before ordering next time. A lot of the stuff on then shelves here are from 2012 so I'm waiting for stock to cycle through to the newer bottlings.

    Cheers!

    I actually just got a request on Facebook from a customer looking for single malt for her wedding. Apparently her fiancee is currently in the Air Force, his only request about the wedding planning was that our whiskey be served!

    Better yet, wait for me to come into town next and we can have a private tasting with some rarer expressions

    Private tasting? Sounds romantic.

    I can tell you do. Frankly if you are selling a product that you make yourself you are a pretty bad businessman if you don't have a thick skin. Getting all huffy or defensive about criticism has started the downfall of a lot of businesses. Many kudos to you for coming here and interacting and giving folks reasons to buy your whiskey. Still too rich for my blood but you are building a good case.
