Two good articles

That's The has two great articles today that are worth mentioning.

The first is on Cognac and Chocolate and how lagging sales in the brandy are being lifted thanks to the new pairing. Chocolate's flavors really go nicely with the vanilla and brandy of Cognac and the best advice in the entire article is to grab a Cognac and some fine chocolates and experiment for yourself.

The other article is an interview with Bill Samuel's Jr. who is continuing his dad's tradition of making a good bourbon with Maker's Mark. Even though his dad "never really liked bourbon" he created a lasting brand that has led the way in the resurgence of bourbon and a great crossover drink thanks to it's use of wheat rather than the stiffer rye. Very good interview.
