    Pappy Van Winkle video

    Here is a link to a news story that aired last night on WHAS 11 about recently found video of Pappy Van Winkle. I had a small part in this story, mostly helping Doug Proffitt connect with Sally and Julian. It is a great story. http://www.whas11.com/story/news/loc...vely/70014744/

    Wow! That was just charming, Mike.
    So many of these 'Bourbonians of old' have such interesting and enlightening stories. ...Not to mention the "history" (or what passes for it at the distillery gift shops and in their marketing). That stuff is fun, too... even if we know most of it is made up.
    It's really nice to see the old pix and especially the old films of someone real, and as legendary as "Pappy" Van Winkle.
    Thanx so much for posting this.

    I wish stories like this one were a regular occurrence; maybe they are and I am not privy to them...

    I also fear that the art of telling a story is becoming a lost one as generations move to short, sound bite communication means from the hour long stories my grandfather used to tell me.

    Thanks for posting, Mike!

    Thanks Mike. Being a history buff that was very enjoyable.

    Very cool, Mike--thanks for being involved in getting things like this out. As a bourbon drinker who minored in history, I loved 99% of the story. As a Native Ohioan, however...
