The Whiskey Drinker’s Dilemma

by Coleman Glenn

“Whiskey Fungus Fed by Jack Daniel’s Encrusts a Tennessee Town.
The dark growth, fed by alcohol vapors from barrels of aging Jack Daniel’s whiskey,
has coated homes, cars, patio furniture and road signs in a sooty crust, residents said.”

The New York Times

Boozy air and whiskey fungus.
Small stills, though, are also risky—
Fifty bucks for fungus whiskey!
