094 – Bourbon Truth, the infamous blogger and twitter persona who tells it like it is

Posted on Posted in podcast


Bourbon Truth, the infamous blogger and twitter persona known as Lloyd Christmas, gives a Bourbon Pursuit exclusive where no one is safe. He tells it like it is and let’s you know not everything smells like roses.

  1. What made you start blogging? (spoiler alert, he has bone to pick with the Van Winkles)
  2. Let’s talk about distilleries and their non-sense tactics. Which ones stand out the most and why?
  3. Your latest blog post talked about the issues behind private barrel picks. Let’s talk because people are moving to these as the limited edition market is now flooded with people.
  4. Lets talk about marketing over the value of the bottles. What do you see consumers continually falling for?
  5. Distillers are continually pushing the envelope of cost. Bottles are increasing in price and even limited editions that were once $50 are now $350 at retail. These were always 15 year bourbons. What’s the long-term effect?
  6. Should a person that never drank Bourbon before 2017 take the precious bottles from those drinking it for 5 or 10 years? Are they worthy?
  7. Is there a problem with people “collecting” bourbon?
  8. Does Craft Whiskey stand a chance?
