How bad can that be??

We whiskey lovers are always complaining about something the distillers are doing, but in general, I think they deal with a very strange, difficult, and demanding audience when it comes to Enthusiasts. We want the highest quality at yesterday's prices. They are faced with an unsure demand, years in advance, and global comglomerates that demand ever more profits and cost cutting. It is still possible to drink very good whiskey at very reasonable prices and we can give many examples of this (my recent purchase of Old Ezra BIB, a very respectable boubon at about $13 bears this out). And this does not even take into account the very understandable, and commendable, desires of the Master Distillers who want to satisfy their creative ambitions. You can, and do, express you opinions economically, by not buying. I can, and do, express mine, by paying premiums for whiskey that is often not worth the price. That is how the market works, even when it is working well............ as it often isn't.
