    Attention Louisville Area Bourbon Drinkers

    In todays Courier-Journal in the Sports section there is an advertsement from a marketing company looking for bourbon drinkers. They will pay $75.00 for 2 hours of your time for a bourbon tasting. I called they just took my name, phone numbers and email, but asked no questions about me being associated with distilleries. They said they will call me back in a couple of days. If you are interested the number is 454-0771.

    I don't know who is sponsoring this tasting. It could be any of the companies, but I suspect it may be Brown-Forman since they are working on a name for their new 4 grain bourbon.

    Gee, and who would think there would be a lot of people willing to be paid $75 to drink bourbon for two hours?

    Re: Attention Louisville Area Bourbon Drinkers

    In that article I posted a link to some time ago about Brown-Forman and the wood for barrels. There is a mention that they put together tasting panels and anyone can apply. I haven't yet. Seems the growth is in sweet drinks to be favored by females. Also noted was some of it is done in a room with red light. They take your ability to see the color and that removes any preconcieved notion of what you might think the drink is supposed to taste like.

    Bj,

    That just isn't right. There's gotta be a lawyer in the vicinity who will take your case.

    Just look for the circling buzzards or listen for the sound of an ambulance siren. One won't be far away.

    Dave,
    Yeah, that crossed my mind...
    On the other hand, the BF lawyer's feathers are already ruffled and I might just be walking into a trap. I live right next-door to Barton's... .

    I appears they don't care what women think.
    What a shame,
    Bj

    I sometimes share your sentiments -- until I or someone I value needs a lawyer. Then it's a completely different situation. When it's my ass on the line, I want Johnnie Cochran on my side.

    Yours truly,
