This is a poorly written article.

First, why do people need to get near a spirit safe? Less than 1% of the people in the world have access to a spirit safe and there is no real reason to be near one. Very questionable statement from the author.

Second, the author calls Georgia Moon a novelty product, but gives no reason why they don't fit Woodinville into the same catagory. If they are both white dogs....then why is one allowed and not the other?

Third, there is no quality difference from one whiskey to another. They all use grains from the same sources and of the same quality. Quality differences are mostly a myth. The biggest difference in spirits comes from the yeast they mash with and the type of still they use...then lastly, filtration and source of their water.

So basicly, the author doesn't know what they are talking about. At the end of the article...he then compares the white dog with Scotch whiskey. How do you compare Scotch and Corn whiskey white dog...they are totally different.

The author erased these comments from her website.

I guess she will only allow people to comment...when they agree with her. That tells you alot about the author.

Her knowledge is very limited...and I would guess that she was paid for her article by the distillery or their representatives.

Wow, yea - I read that article too. Kate totally slammed Georgia Moon but got big wood from Woodinville (pun intended, on a couple of levels). Is there really that big of difference between them? I guess I need to try some of the white dogs and get an opinion myself. I love whiskey/whiskey but have never tried it without that oak or oak & smoke taste.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
