yes, but if even the folks at heaven hill think it's the second best whiskey that they produce, leave alone second best in the world, i'll eat my hat. (i don't actually own a hat.)

Absolutely.

 

But at that price, and for mixing, it's almost impossible to beat.

Of course, it's not all grim news. The brands which preach that NAS whiskeys offer them increased flexibility, quality control, and consistency do make a legitimate argument, as long as they see it through. Moreover, the removal of an age label or introduction of a new NAS expression doesn't have to mean a downturn in quality.

 

ah yes, that tremendous eater authority being brought to bear on behalf of NAS whisky.

those of you who have an interest in bourbon beyond merely drinking it may find interesting my post on the blog on "col. e.h. taylor, bourbon and the problem of tradition". i came to it on account of an idle discovery, after posting a review of the e.h. taylor small batch bourbon, that e.h. taylor, founder of buffalo trace and major figure in the history of the industry, was apparently also a major apologist for the confederacy well into the early decades of the 20th century.

I know close to nothing about Irish Whiskey and probably only had Jameson until this week. Someone had too much to drink in Las Vegas and started ordering Midleton Very Rare for a few of us at the bar. It is simply like velvet and absolutely delicious. I had know idea what the price was until I looked it up when I got home.

Astor has a couple bottles of the Midleton Very Rare for I think $148, and they're doing a 17% off sale on Irish whiskeys on March 16-17.

I keep meaning to but forgetting to pick up this interesting sounding French single malt made in Cognac and aged in Cognac barrels.

Thanks. That was my sense. I can't stand even the smell of bourbon, which I find sweet.
