    the serious point is: spelling Scottish distilled beverages "whiskey" is always wrong.

    Spelling Irish distilled beverages "whiskey" is always correct.

    Spelling the American equivalent beverage "whiskey" may be wrong. Except when it's right. So... now you know.

    For the most part if the country doesn't have an "e" in the name then they make whisky.

    If they have an "e" then it is a whiskey.

    Clearly the Maker's Mark and Balcones people were drunk when they made those labels :)

    Are you looking at the Coriander and Salt part? Not familiar with the Gose style?

    Stop all this Westbrook Gose talk, I traded for a 12-pack last week and I'm making a huge effort to not drink all of them in one sitting.

    Where to begin...

    Exactly what does it take to get a camera drunk?

    Do you really think you're the only one who got drunk drinking beer?

    How many beers does it take to make a beer take a selfie?
