Here is an interesting quote from a 1934 Louisville Times.

"A colonel of our acquaintance says the permanent wave sisterhood seen in barrooms nowadays have a great advantage over gentlemen in that they have no memory of the days when the Taylors and Thompsons marketed their liquor in a leisurely way, and the man whose wife was older than the whisky he drank was a grandfather."

Times have changed in the last 100 years. The scariest part of that quote is that before the 1950's the bonding period was 8 years so most whiskey was 8 years old or less.

Just goes to show how cloudy-minded people can be when getting all nostalgic.
