    That "made" word is obviously loosely interpreted. Technically the alcohol is "made" in Kentucky, but then that alcohol is "made" into bourbon in Virginia.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    Just be careful how you phrase the bet.

    Re: Virginia Gentleman 90 proof

    This one's been on my short list to try for some time, as the flavour profile that I've read about seems to fit my current bourbon preference - light, slightly sweet, low alcohol burn on the finish (like ETL or MM.) So, when I read this thread, I got motivated to jump online and order a bottle from the (only) Aussie store that imports it.... and, they're out of stock
    C'est la vie.

    The Fox was a part of my "hard to get" tasting a week ago. I'll try and post the notes today.
