    So, I guess according to the Society of Wine Experts, it's a "Certified Spirits Specialist"?
    Well, how can it not be McCormick's, the $7 well bourbon of the finest dive bars? Tastes like kerosene and sadness.

    Re: Is there a special name for a Bourbon Expert?

    After doing some research I've determined there's no law that says I can't open the Squire Institute for Spirits Certification. Sooo, send me a check for $500.00 and I'll see you are certified as a Bourbon Expert.

    There's a test of course . . . your check has to clear.

    Sorry about that. I have a hard time watching my language after I've had four glasses of bourbon and someone starts telling me I should try it with a splash of water.
