If there’s one thing we can all agree on regarding the holiday season, it’s that it’s a great time to drink. It’s cold, so we need to warm ourselves from the inside. You’re hanging out with family, and some of them you don’t like so you can ease the pain with a little of grandpa’s cough medicine. And it’s the change to a new year, and no one wants to remember that. So, we drink. But this year, if, like Stamos, you’re a bourbon guy, you might have to lube up with another representative of Brown Town.
George Dickel won’t be at your holiday party this year. That’s because they shut down production from 1999 to 2003 to reduce supply in the marketplace. Well, mission accomplished, morons. Now you don’t even have enough to satisfy the appetite for destruction felt by so many southerners over the next couple of weeks. Luckily for us, there’s our old friends Jack and Jimmy to turn to. So, when the next batch of #8 comes pouring out of the barrell, we might have gotten comfortable with our new drinking buddies. We’re all familiar with basic economics here, and less supply + demand = higher prices. However, 0 supply will inevitably = 0 demand. Let’s hope the team of monkey’s behind that decision get their holiday bonuses before they’re laid off, else there will be some nanner-less primates on Christmas this year.
