    You Could Not Make this Stuff Up... The Final word in "Craft"

    Written by

    OK whisky people, regardless of what a Florida judge may say, can we all agree it is now time to take the word "craft" out back and shoot it in the head like a diseased dog as it has become totally meaningless as Pepsi announce launch of their "craft soda". Time to call a good class action attorney? Mmmm a "good class action attorney".... add that to the list of sentences I thought I would never write.

    An interesting 15 year old bourbon that comes at a beefy 50.5% ABV.  The nose has corn, oak, furniture poilsh and some red fruits, raspberry maybe.  No grain or acetone notes reflecting the 15 years in cask.  The taste is warming but not hot, with oak, butter popcorn, cocoa, toffee and a citrus fruit tang.  The pepper and oak builds into the finish with some more fruit and herb and  rye notes right at the end.  Not bad at all but lacks a little body, but lot's going on.
