    Like Hell they have. The only thing they have proven is those with disposable cash will use some of it to satisfy a whim of curiosity.

    I know for my wallet, I've sworn off buying stuff over $50 unless I've tried it first, because more than half the stuff I paid more for turned out to be "just OK" for my palate (and at that price, it needs to do a whole lot more). Now by "swearing off", that means I try hard to pass it by I've passed up a lot of bottles of this, and while I enjoyed the taste I had - I didn't enjoy it enough to part with that kind of dough.

    And that itch, once scratched, won't itch again.

    Au contraire mon ami! It can and does itch again. Was it a bad night for the palate? Was I not feeling well that day? What else did I have to eat or drink? What can't I play with the big kids???

    In fact, it is feeling kinda itchy right now...

    Well this certainly makes for an interesting read; it even references this thread.

    Entertaining but nothing we didn't already know and we have tasting notes which he doesn't.

    All piss and vinegar and internet outrage. Not just that blog entry, the whole site.

    I had more than a few sentences typed up, but then I thought "pot, kettle."

    As you note not much new here and to Cooper Spirits credit they did discuss it here with the sort of people who care about this sort of minutiae. Doesn't seem to be poking his pointy stick at WhistlePig (didn't come up on a search of his blog anyway) which would appear to be just as guilty if not more so on the bullshit meter.
