After the Cleveland Whiskey article and now this, Forbes is well on its way to winning Worst Bourbon Coverage Ever By A Publication That Should Know Better.
Wow. It wouldn't have been THAT bad if the author hadn't felt the need to opine.
"F**k it, I'm gettin' into the whiskey."
Love that FRSmB cause it's so smooooooooooth!
This guy gets paid for this?
Bourbon only requires a glass.
I don't have my bottle here at work, but even before he gets into opinion-land he's missing out on the facts. My bottle was 15XX/67XX IIRC. But as you can see from Forbes coverage of net worth, 4000 is close enough to 6700 in their world.
I am not seeing what all of the hue and cry is about. What specifically has upset most of you?
The thing that got me the most is the implication that "FR1B 2013 is for display only" and should be used to impress one's friends with its unopened presence on the bar.
I have way too many open bottles right now but I damn near cracked one after I read that.

I don't see where he said that...he says:
"At nearly $100 a bottle, this immediately jumps to the top end of the bourbon price range, and having tried it, I would suggest that it is mainly for collectors, especially given its very limited production."
and...." If you want to add a bottle to your bar that few of your friends will have ever seen, the Single Barrel will do the job"
He is just stating his preference for the regular 4RSB over the more expensive limited release.
I guess we all read and interpret things a little differently.
Maybe Chuck C can expand on what pissed him off about the article to clear things up.
