                            Nice photo... My comment is only on the Bourbon. I will just say you need to go on the Bourbon Trail Tour... There are several better. Just within a few miles of the house.

                            I did that trail! A few years ago I accompanied my wife on a business trip to Gatlinburg and afterwards we hit as many distilleries as we could. I thought Maker's Mark had the best tour (even got to dip my own bottle!). But they were all good. Interestingly, the head distiller at MM told me that the best inexpensive bourbon - and the one he and several distillers he knows drink regularly - was Very Old Barton. As they don't ship very much outside the southern states I loaded up a case while I was there. He was right, it was an excellent tipple for the price.

                            As far as this picture goes, I think it's terrific. My only quibble would be what looks like PS artifacts around the shoulders of the bottle, and I find the ice cube reflections in the upper portion of the glass to be distracting. I'd like a uniform glass top, although that's just my personal preference, not a criticism.

                            I was in Louisville for 6 months on a microbiology contract. Took it twice and made the trip to the JB distillery in Clermont. What an amazing place! I almost got a buzz off of the "angel's cut" in the ageing houses!

                            I saw those artifacts too. This was a stack of 5 images to ensure everything was sharp. It is possible the appearance of the shoulders is from the stacking

                            Thanks! And I think JB Black is neck and neck with Jamison's on the smooth scale. No bite, just great whiskey flavor going down.
