    Kind Sir, thank you for pointing out that I have read the article incorrectly. Then I will say emphaticaly and without reservation, that despite the definition you have quoted is separated from your next statement by a period, it implies that there is a legal requirement for the spirit to be distilled in Kentucky. I didn’t mean to offend you as the author, but merely wanted to point out an oversight. I believe other educated bourbon drinkers will agree, your statement is misleading. I believe Sir, like other journalists who have printed errors, you should have printed a correction or clarification, especially when quoting facts as they pertain U.S. law.

    If by retraction you mean re-wording the sentence for people who read statments incorrectly than criticise the writer, than yes, comsider it done.

    Kind sir? Do you always talk like that?

    I was blissfuly ignorant of your website before this morning and I now that I am aware of it, I shall avoid it in the future. You have brought convincing evidence that anyone with a computer can create a website and hold themselves out as journalist.

    Amazing analysis from an illiterate. Good job.

    Your definition of bourbon is inaccurate. There is no requirement in the Distilled Spirits Act that bourbon be from Kentucky. I remind you that LDI, Lawrrenceburg, IN produces bourbon under licensed agreement for some well known labels. While such a statement is common among supposed bourbon drinkers as they mix bourbon with coke or Pepsi, I am surprised by such a faux pas from a whisk(e)y website.
    I will concede it is hard to argue the absolute 10 best bourbons, your article could have been written about my personal collection.

    You are reading the definition incorrectly. The only requirment I said for it to be called a Bourbon is that it needs to be a 51% corn mash. Now, for it to be called a Kentucky Straight Bourbon, it needs to be from Kentucky period.

    I agree, it is very hard to argue the 10 best everything and if we are talking personal collections, the bottles and bottles I receive in the mail each week would rival any bar I have ever seen.
