    I remain firmly astride the fence.

    Re: Another proof change coming?

    Yeah, I knew as soon as I saw the "somebody will pay it; somebody always pays it" mantra. I honestly didn't even think about the date!

    I especially like how you threw in those left-handed compliments! (more successful . . . even though . . .)

    Re: Another proof change coming?

    It's going to be a dance, especially with minor brands, so this had the ring of truth, except they run such a tight ship at BT that if a mid-level employee was whistle-blowing, he or she would be at the bottom of the Kentucky River by now.

    BT seems to already have 'rationalized' most of its brands, although there could be more tweaks to come. I noticed on the re-vamped Great Bourbons site that they no longer even acknowledge that they make things like Ten High, Virginia Gentleman, and Tom Moore, although they do still cop to Benchmark, Kentucky Gentleman, and Kentucky Tavern.

    I mistakenly reported in the new Reader that Eagle Rare Single Barrel went NAS. Just a mistake, but one they were eager for me to acknowledge and correct.

    And we're eager for them to correct their ER mistake. :P
