Damn, I hope my bottle of Bourbon Barrel L'Impératrice isn't infected!

The Impératrice I had at the pub a while back was pretty good, but it wasn't Barrel-aged IIRC.

2012 bottles are clearly infected, I’m not sure about the 2016 batch.

I wonder how it will affect participation/inclusion in the likes of Cask Days, availability at top tier beer bars and that kind of thing. Presumably the same guys will be there (at least for a little while) - not many cases I can think of where brewers with good personal relationships around have become "big". Wasn't the case with Creemore & Unibroue I don't think. Uncharted territory.
