At least they didn't add a big ole "8" to the front?
Ain't nothing safe, boyos. Phooey.
These boards are meant for discussion, and sometimes folks disagree. That's all well and good. Paul just posted an answer he got from BT. If you disagree, that's fine, but please tone down your comments some. Calling out b**l s**t and saying screw 'em is going a little overboard IMHO. Besides, it just plain doesn't look good, especially with all the newer members here. They might get the wrong impression of our site. If you're that upset about the whole thing, maybe you should try contacting Sazerac yourself, and voice your opinions to them. Yes, this is a warning. I really don't want to have to start locking or deleting threads. Everyone's assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
" I never met a Weller I didn't like"
That is why you don't always respond to customer inquiries. Jeez, should have at least mentioned the on-going shortage as to why they'd have to do it. Reinforcing the "pee on my shoes, tell me its rain" mentality.
I guess if Weller 12 ever goes NAS, it will still be called Weller 12 because it is widely known as Weller 12. Of course, it is widely known as Weller 12 because it is in fact a 12 year old age stated bourbon, which stands for something.
Age statements matter. If they didn't they never would've been on the labels in the first place.
We're Bourbon Geeks, it's who we are, it's what we do.
