Whisky Curiosa, the Mike Padlipsky legacy
Mike Padlipsky was one of the founders of the original ARPA MALTS-L which is now run as the Maniacs mailing list (MM-MALTS-L). Mike died of an illness in 2011. Bill Ricker inherited the collection of photos of all his empties which stretch back into mid 20th Century, and kindly made them available for publication here.
Also see Mike Padlipsky’s Research Notes for his tasting notes.
Mike’s rating scale was based on a rating of a checkmark “V” being Very Good (worthy of further attention), and went up and down from there with modifiers.
