Trivia:
American whiskey is aged in single use oak barrels. When it's emptied for bottling, the barrel is disassembled and usually sold and shipped to Scotland for use in aging -sigh- single malt scotch like Glem Morangie or Ireland for some John Jameson or Bushmills. It is used over and over there. They also use wine aging barrels from Spain and Portugal for a bit of a different taste - over and over.

If that BS from the FDA continues, it might mean that, one, domestic bourbons may disappear and two, scotch whiskeys might get stopped from being imported.

Cheeses - oh well, that's life:sad:

Amazing... simply amazing. What has been done for a thousand years is now taboo. They're from the government... they are here to help us...

I think we were a LOT healthier before the "helpful people" started to protect us.

And let us raise a glass and give thanks for the use of the barrels. Screw the cheese, as long as there's Jameson, Life Is Good. :yes4:
