So in my blind rage against the Trader Joe’s bourbon in the last podcast, I gave out incorrect information. After the cast, I got to thinking about how they could have ‘bourbon’ on the bottle if it wasn’t truly bourbon. Thus, I looked its official entry up in the TTB database (alcohol and tobacco tax and trade bureau), and it turns out that it is actually classified as bourbon. Additionally, since it has no age statement, yet says ‘straight whiskey’ on the bottle, it must also be at least 4 years old. Perhaps in my rage at how awful I found it when I first tried it a few years ago I was too willing to believe the rumor about them trademarking the name ‘Kentucky Bourbon’. Anyhow, we’re going to try and keep everything accurate for you guys and if you notice anything in the future that doesn’t sound quite right, let us know!
Additionally, I am hoping to be able to make this blog look nicer at some point. Currently it looks like something you found on dogpile.com while listening to your 3.5″ floppy hum trying to install the latest version of doom.exe. I don’t really want to pay the $30 for being able to customize things, but I’ll be trying to work on ways to make it look a little better.
Thanks for listening!
