Get a Taste of Kentucky Coach John Calipari's Booze

It was bound to happen. It seemed a natural. A famous whiskey putting out a limited version of hooch with the Kentucky basketball coach on the label. It's like chocolate and peanut butter.

Maker's Mark, which is, yes, Kentucky made whiskey, is releasing 24,000 special edition bottles with Wildcat coach John Calipari's mug on the label. They will be available April 2nd.
The bottles are scheduled to be sold for $49, but knowing Kentucky fans the price will likely rise as supply becomes even more limited.

Bet you're wondering what this special coach's brew will taste like. I have a theory. If I know John Calipari, who has had NCAA violations at nearly every stop on his well-coifed coaching journey, I'm pretty sure this booze is going to taste like hair grease and snake oil.

The problem is, the reproduction makes him look like a cross between Johnny Cash and the villain from an Ed Wood movie.

Fantastic. That's exactly what it looks like.

Just as an aside, Makers Mark does this every year. A portion of the proceeds from sales go directly to the university programs. Last year, they honored Coach Rich Brooks.

Anyone around here knows that the only thing strange about this announcement would have been if it had not happened.
