What A Waste

In 2003 800,000 gallons of Jim Beam was spilled into a retention pond and ignited by a lightening strike causing a fire tornado to form. Not sure why UPI reran the story of the firenado except that it was the 12th anniversary of the event. The fire show is definitely worth a view though.

They may have re-ran the story because, if it was all new, it'd hit its peak about now. I think bourbon has to be aged at least two years, most distilleries age it four years, but it's best around the eight to twelve year mark. I understand there's a careful balancing act because it'll turn if you age it too long. Those barrels which are twelve years old and haven't started becoming woody are the very best.

Why'd Jim Beam need to pay for clean-up this was an act of a wrathful God giving Man one last chance to resist Demon Rum before the coming of the Rapture?

I suspect Jim Beam got stuck with the clean up bill because most insurance policies exclude 'Acts of God' from coverage.
