    yeah, exactly.

    Id give best whiskey to Dickel 9/103, but 99% of whiskey drinkers (at least) would probably disagree. and that is just fine with me!

    Thanks for posting Gregg! We're pretty honored to receive these accolades. We knew last month we were the World Single Malt, but World Whisky of the Year was a surprise for us! Go Texas!

    For the record, I am only making fun of the award, not the whiskeys. I do really like the early True Blue, and I am still working on the Single Malt. It might take most of the bottle for me to decided whether I like it or not.

    Me too, I have been commenting on an outfit whose sole purpose is to get paid for giving out awards and promoting the winning brands which is thinly disguised advertizing. That and excluding Scotch from a malt competition is an out loud laugh. That's like an island in the South Pacific declaring it's coconut tossing contest to be a World Competition.

    I don't think I mentioned it here already, but our new stills are completed and fully operational! Looking beautiful too I might add #copperporn


    New copper spirit stills! Gorgeous


    New copper wash stills. They're like 10'+ tall. We almost weren't sure they were going to fit, lol


    Just some magic happening


    Hand built super efficient copper condensers

    What does it sound like? Is it angelic? Or more like Daft Punk blended with Dimmu Borgir?

    Very pretty. Your other promotional thread here would probably be a more suitable place for the pics, though.
