Frodo:
Domestic Canadian beers from the lager companies are the same swill with different levels of food colouring, water and carbonation, and as such are a shamefull examples of beer, their popularity bolstered by mindless consumers and huge advertizing budgets.

Molson's got the silver bullet up the back-side and is now owned by Coors! Thats pronounced Ka-hewers 'round here. :lol:

After thinking on this some more, I guess it's not that big a deal having different whiskies coming from the same mashbills. Different traditions have their own ways of doing things, and every tradition has things they're trying to iron out. Bottom line is the taste. It's still hard to believe that this much flavour difference can be attributed to microclimate alone. I guess I have a lot to learn... :oops:
