Diageo doesn't have bourbons (except IW Harper) because they screwed up what they had and sold their brands to others. If they had kept what they owned they would have had Old Charter, I W Harper, Schenley, Old Quaker, James E Pepper, J W Dant, Old Fitzgerald, W L Weller, Cabin Still, Rebel Yell, Glenmore, Yellowstone, Ezra Brooks, Medley, Fleischmann's, Georgia Moon, and a boat load of other smaller brands. Their track record is a disaster with bourbon. Brown-Forman might be best as far as leaving the brand alone and letting Bill run things as they are.
Linn would make the bourbon better.
