    Like someone else said, shocking and horrible news and at the peak of his career, too. He was gone way too soon. RIP.

    44? Sad news. Prayers to his wife and family. A significant loss to the whiskey community

    Re: RIP: Truman Cox

    I met Truman about 18 months ago at an event we were both doing. He was quick to share his knowledge with me and offered his help in any way he could. At Whiskey Fest in NYC, I also met his wife. While we weren't super close, I feel like I lost a friend. He was just "good people".

    I'm saddened very much by this. Prayers for his family and for his business.

    Truman was a valued member of Straightbourbon.com, sharing his knowledge and enthusiasm with all of us here. When the SB.com community congratulated him on becoming Master Distiller at A. Smith Bowman, etohchem (his handle here) posted this gracious thank you: http://www.straightbourbon.com/forum...779#post250779

    Very sad news. RIP. Visited the distillery last July and his entusiasm and great natural abilities as a guide impressed me, and made the place and visit very memorable. A gifted and likeable person

    He was such a friendly and fun guy to be around. Each time I went to the distillery he remembered my name and said hi. He was a great Master Distiller but an even better person.

    If the thread looks out of kilter, I merged another thread about Truman's passing in to this one.

    I grossed over eight thousand dollars in one night. Time of your life, huh kid?
