    Yes, there is such a thing as the wrong kind of attention.

    This is my favorite sentence ever written about bourbon - "This is one of the most legendary among the 10 best bourbons in the world. It comes the Wild Turkey distilleries that is owned by Jimmy and Eddie Russell." (Regarding RRSmBSB)

    A very close second would be - "A bourbon will always have corn. But Devil's cut has a trace of rye in it and also some sweet cinnamon for flavour. It is well-known, affordable and totally from the American South." (Regarding Beam DC)

    The bottle of Blanton's in the picture can't be purchased in the US.

    Reads like it is translated (poorly) from Chinese. Just so much wrong with that listing and those descriptions.

    The comment Bourbon brands are different brews . . . guess he forgot to mention the hops.

    "Blanton's Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon This one is a rather traditional old bourbon. It is comprised mainly of corn and honey."
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    That really does sound like a mistranslation of honey barrels.
