    Fireball Whiskey Recall

    Guess if you cant get to an auto parts store you could fill your radiator with Fireball.

    Why not reduce the propylene glycol to the lowest standard and make one product? is the taste that different?

    Re: Fireball Whiskey Recall

    Yeah, I know.

    I was kind of jealous of a food protection agency that both had a (50x I think it was?) tighter restriction on the amount of things like propylene glycol fit for public consumption, and also properly monitored, detected, and enforced the policy.

    Sazerac's response? "We already put less in Europe's stuff because they're crybabies. Even though we put more in for North Americans, we could put 8 times the larger amount in and still be legal"

    Um - FAIL?

    Go Scandinavia!

    That surely was a very poorly thought out response ...

    I was referring to Saz's response as being poorly thought out as I agree with you it is a major fail.

    haha, I admit I wasn't quite sure there what you meant. I wouldn't have taken it personally, but I'm glad you clarified!

    Propylene Glycol is also one of the main ingredients in e-cigarette liquid.

    Also inside the beads inside a cigar humidifier.
    Peggy: Look Al, the rubes think I'm sexy!
    Al: So would I if I had whiskey for breakfast.

    Yum! This is not exactly encouraging me to run out and get some Fireball.

    Edit: It's also in K-Y Jelly: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K-Y_Jelly#Composition

    Not one of my go-to ingredients in a drink.

    Also an ingredient in pharmaceuticals. Used in compounding. However I'm more familiar with it as noted above in cigar humidor humidification.
