    appreciate that! would like it even more if the TTB thought the same. For some reason, I picture every time I email they probably yell over their cubicles, hey got another one from that asswipe in TX.

    Wade laid it out but to sum up, Neversweat appears to be in violation of 5.36(d). (Headframe is the producer, Neversweat is the product.)

    Steve Ury, aka sku the TTB troll, sent me this link today - https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonlin...14214001000046

    Troubadour was on my original list, this newly approved label now states Distilled in Indiana.

    Re: whiskies that fail to list State of Distillation?

    Congratulations, Wade. I'm not sure that the change would have occurred without your poking at them. What gets me is: some enthusiasts (and I include myself in the "obsessive" column) will pass on a bottle of indeterminant provenance while impulse buyers won't read the fine print, anyway, so why NOT follow the regs and put the state of distillation on the bottles? (That's a rhetorical question, you all; don't answer.)

    Re: whiskies that fail to list State of Distillation?

    It is a nice article. I had to giggle at the line that the lawyer from Seattle had regarding the very early years of Templeton rye:

    "I assume (during Prohibition) they didn't distill it in Indiana, then ship it to Iowa, then ship it to Al Capone," Marler said, "because Al Capone would probably get pretty pissed about that."

    Texas Legend is now legal, but it's still despicable.

    Good article though, we could use more like it.
