    All the ratings were 90% my personal ratings in regards to the featured bourbons. It was based solely on taste profiles and not at all on price. I wanted to give accurate ratings based on taste alone regardless of price to the readers. In the case of ETL, that would have received a higher rating if price was a majoe factor, but to stay within the confines of the "Top Shelf" idea, we disregarded price.

    On a side note, I rate all my spiris on a 10.0 scale with decmals in my personal online inventory. www.liquorhunter.com. I do lan in possibly expanding that to a 1000 point scale, but not for the articles.

    I agree - nice looking article. One curiousity, though. The bourbons all look unnaturally pale - especially the Eagle Rare. I think the photographer had a lot of back lighting.

    Thumbs up Bourbon Article(s)

    Speaking of Bourbon Articles, has anyone seen the latest issue of Everyday with Rachael Ray??? There is about a 5 page spread towards the back on "Bourbon Country" Shows the Woodford reserve stills and even lists 3 bourbons to buy with pictures: EWSB, WT RR and PVWFR 20yo!! Very nice....

    Could this be the "proof in the pudding" that Bourbon is gaining in popularity?

    And before anyone asks I do like Rachael and read her magazine, gotta a problem with that?

    About the other arcticle, it is awesome! Only question I have (and yes this is a nitpick), doesn't the port finish exclude DM from being an actual bourbon? Not that I am going to get into an argument with Booker over this or anything just technically speaking of course.... But it's nice to see an article in which 7 of the 10 bourbons shown are in my cupboard!!

    I believe they get around this on a technicallity by labeling it something like "Bourbon finished in port casks"

    Must confess I've never heard of the magazine or Ms. Ray. But I found it and the article is online.

    Not at all. I love to watch her, but I turn off the sound. My wife just laughs.
