on another thread Boone mentions the awful wax on the 28yr old Heaven Hill. I have never liked wax on any bottles. I don't drink Makers Mark anymore...the most ubiquitous wax user and a distillery that seems determined to explore all color combinations and call it innovation rather than age their product to a finer level. I don't judge a bourbon that has it,in the end it is the bourbon not the packaging. I do like Elmer T. Lee, Blanton's etc and am eager to try Black Maple but I think the wax thing is silly, ugly, unnecessary and messy. It also adds to the cost. I know initially it was to show the unique "hand crafted" aspect of a quality bourbon but I just don't care for it. Just give me a great bourbon for the price in an attractive, functional bottle with a simple, interesting label. Any opinions?
