  1. That’s two questionable actions by Bulleit now Kenny. And your still saying well that’s a family thing. Come on dude!! You are starting to sound like a Diageo fan boy. I for one will not support Bulleit or Diageo. Maybe after the next two stories you’ll come around. Nothing will change if you keep sweeping it under the rug. I still love your BP, soo delicious.
