    Re: Balcones Texas Single Malt the World Whisky of the Year in 2014

    As CEO and Founder Emeritus of the industry rating organization "Liberal User of Spirits for Health" (LUSH), let me state for the record that WTF? appears to be a sham organization....just sayin'...

    The timing of your accusation is most inauspicious, given that WTF? was about to sponsor LUSH for induction into the Adamantly Discriminating Hall Of Credibility (AD HOC).

    The award makes me think of the wise Col. Sherman T. Potter when he uttered the words "Horse hockey."

    I'm sick of tired of all these F***ing awards. Double gold, silver, platinum, whiskey of the year, whiskey of the century, best whiskey in the galaxy, milky way best whiskey, celestial whiskey of the millennium, double rose gold national tasting institute whiskey of the year, editor's choice, editor's top ten pick, drunk advocate speyside whiskey of the year, smokey whiskey lover's peaty malt of the year, etc. Anything to sell a extra bottle and to differentiate themselves from other distillery and be able to charge more for their juice.

    Sheeeeesh folks! An award is what it is, whichever group is giving out the award. This whiskey was deemed an award winner. Agree or disagree, fine, but don't start lambasting a distillery or someone/something just because. If you haven't tried it, don't knock it. Just remember "Judge not, that ye be not judged."

    When the distillery is using said award for promotion on their website and for PR purposes in press, then I think that opens to distillery up to criticism.
