    Bourbon Article

    I found this article in a local free magazine that I received in the mail. I was going to chuck it but low and behold I scanned a bourbon article!

    Enjoy!





    Edit: See Evangelos post below for links to online article.

    That looks like the article that Evangelos was working on
    2010 Bourbonian of the Year

    As long as you have good whiskey you're not "unemployed", you're "Funemployed!!!"

    Evangelos,

    That's a very appealling presentation. I think it would motivate adventurous drinkers of other spirits to give bourbon a try. Good job.

    I'm curious about the ratings, especially one such as "8.3". That suggests either a rather complex system or more participants than just you and the co-author. Would you care to describe your method?

    Thank you for the compliments. We worked hard to make the artcile look nice and have informative, but cathcy content.

    As far as the ratings go, we were trying to give them a top to bottom rating that added some merit. After I reviewed our ratings, I probably would have changed a few. Too late now!

    I love the way the presentation in the artcile came out. I couldn't have asked for a better "looking" article. I have it framed at 150% of the regular size near my bar.

    Rum is the next article I am working on. It will be out soon as well for the summer issue.

    Evangelos,

    Not only was the overall look top-notch (both the photos and the text), I thought you did a good job of presenting the right amount of information for the average, lifestyle-conscious person. I've found as an amateur that the hardest task a non-fiction writer faces is to decide on the reader's level of interest and tailor the presentation accordingly.

    In connection with, let's say, the 8.3 rating for Booker's did each of the two of you simply assign a single rating, say 8.0 and 8.6, which you then averaged? Or did each of you assign a rating for each of several factors (e.g., appearance, nose, palate and finish)? If the latter, were those factors weighted?
