After telling my sister about my bottle of 1835 I purchased at Specs and how I enjoyed buying Texas whisky and supporting my state, she proceeded to burst my bubble. First she had me read this article along with a blog saying basically the same thing. I had been flamboozled. Now that I know the real players from the posers, again I will attempt to buy Texas "distilled" whisky when I can find it. Nothing wrong with1835 or Rebecca Creek but I don't like being sold a bill of goods.
