    Re: Whistlepig CEO is whiskey idiot and proves it

    Gary - It's required to say it as Product Type, not just somewhere on the label. In that picture, it says Straight Rye. Here is image of Angel's Envy which is labeled correctly.

    Also products like Angel's Envy and Red Stag are classified by the TTB as class type 641 - Whiskey Specialties.

    Oh okay, but if the government approved the label as I'd assume, I guess they were good with it... We've seen apparent inconsistencies before.

    Don't know how it is there Gary, the only thing our government is good at is collecting taxes. Someone in authority approved the Whistlepig label though so it must have passed muster.

    I think Dave Pickerell is very good at manipulating the TTB on label approvals.

    I don't believe for second that the (our) government does it right 100% of time in anything they do.

    Re: Whistlepig CEO is whiskey idiot and proves it

    I've watched the video numerous times. This man is definitely not a whiskey idiot. He fought through this interview and much of its inane discussion points, but I in no way sensed that he didn't know what he was talking about. There may be other warts on the Pig, but I don't think he added to them, here.

    I agree, this guy is very far from being an idiot.

    I agree as I noted earlier. Certainly no idiot. But he is clearly still cultivating the biggest wart on the nose of that pig by lying, or at least skirting the truth as has been the case all along, in trying to pass off WP as "American" rye whiskey.

    Perhaps it is we who are too small minded to recognize his vision.
