Since Bas bumped this thread and re-reading Frank's post from a year ago, I should say that I've more-or-less washed my hands of the Wikipedia bourbon whiskey entry. It's just more trouble than it's worth trying to keep ahead of the idiots who have mucked it up again. Wikipedia is great in a lot of ways but it has its faults, which are certainly on display in the whiskey-related entries.
How would I write it? Well, you can see by looking up Bourbon Whiskey in the New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture, Volume 7, Foodways
, which I wrote (the bourbon entry, not the whole thing).
