Fixing the Whisky Advocate Bourbon Cover

The latest Whisky Advocate came out recently and it is a great issue featuring bourbon, but the cover has some serious flaws which I have seen fit to correct.  I will have to admit that they have better lighting conditions than my basement bar.

  1. What's up with the full bottles fellows?  I have a steadfast rule, no full bottles on the bar.  It's more fun that way.
  2. A rocks glass for top shelf bourbon.  Shame.
  3. Top shelf bourbon on the rocks.  Double shame.  That better be iced tea or Canadian Whisky stunt dick.
  4. It's a bourbon issue.  Splurge for the "e".
I couldn't quite replicate the cover.  I don't have the Pappy 20, just the 15 and 23.  Poor me.   The Glencairn glass has the Taylor single barrel, lower proof and almost empty as I hit post... and all the way empty as I hit re-post with the stunt dick joke.


  1. Where the heck did you find Pappy 15 or 23 in Ohio????

  2. I got the 23 from a cousin in Tennessee several years ago. I did get the 15 in Ohio. I'm not saying where, I'm not saying how. A few bottles of the good stuff can be had if you are lucky.
