    In regards to whiskey education, especially, American, disspelling a lot of whiskey falsehood and miseducation, can be quite common. Fortunately, today, there are many readily available resources to fact check and cross-reference information, which, I use very often, especially, when developing curriculum that will be used in teaching others. One item that I wanted to point out and correct is in the article pertaining to Bar Mash in Charleston. The Four Foses distillery for quite some time has been using two mash bills, only: The "OB" consists of 60% corn, 35% rye and 5% malted barley and the OE which consists of 75% corn, 20% rye and 5% malted barley. And, there are five different yeast strains: F- Herbal and floral, K- Spice, O- Rich fruit, Q- Floral and V- Delicate fruit. So, with that said, for their single/ private barrel program their are 10 different Bourbons to choose from, in essence. And, the standard single barrel is bottled at 100 proof/ 50 % ABV and there are those that will be bottled at barrel proof, typically, in the range of 118 proof - 130 proof, give or take. This information should still be listed on their website (www.fourrosesbourbon.com). I hope this helps...
    Slainte!
