    I'd guess advertising, or it falls between whiskey and schnapps or whatever so they have to call it something. Just relax and enjoy whatever you want, and call it by whatever you want. I drink a bunch of flavored whiskeys, I don't care what someone else calls it I just call it whatever it says on the bottle.

    yeah I know but me and custom have been butting heads over this for a while now....I just can't believe they would advertise it as whiskey and google would rate it as the number two whiskey in the world and its not even a whiskey......custom was right and im kinda shocked its very esoteric knowledge but I commend him for his stance as even google called it a whiskey it wasn't until I did a bing search that I realised I was wrong

    Just don't worry about it man. I'm drinking Elijah Craig whiskey right now, I don't give two craps weather it qualifies or not, I like it, tastes good, and says whiskey on the bottle so that's what I call it!

    Lol I already told him not to worry about it. We weren't butting heads, it was simply a poke in the ribs so to speak. Also I do drink Elijah Craig small batch whiskEy as well, not bad for the $$$...

    And the E is for @kojack for the traditional Irish/American spelling, not to be confused for our friends to the north who spell it Whisky like in Scotland...

    However I'm sure it's above 40% before they add the sugar and cinnamon flavorings. So when you mix 80 proof Jim Beam with coke it doesn't magically become not whiskey just because the drink is now below 80 proof! Think about that a bit...

    Oh, and now I'm drinking some 99 proof shooters my fiancé got me for my bday.

    "Whiskey: Spirits distilled from a fermented mash of grain at less than 95% alcohol by volume (190 proof) having the taste, aroma and characteristics generally attributed to whisky and bottled at not less than 40% alcohol by volume (80 proof)"

    lol...yeah porter custom is a very smart man...google said fireball and jack daniels were number 1 and 2 wiskeys but fireball is technically not whiskey....not sure how custom gained his esoteric knowledge but id hate to do a trivia match against him lol....

    also how do i avoid getting banned like 200 times a year....is there a book of rules i can read and if there is why so many rules .. im from canada and usa canada uk have something called freedom and actually millions died defending it....low iq or wat
